Richard Di Natale: [allegation; float around; mockery; get in the way; play it for all it's worth;]  It is typical. But what we know is that there are all these sorts of allegations floating around. We've got a royal commissioner who's got - who has links to the Liberal Party. He's now been found out accepting fundraisers to Liberal Party events. I mean, it makes mockery of the independence of the process, and that's the problem with this stuff. The politics always gets in the way of getting a decent outcome, and so you end up with, if there is an issue within the union at the moment, I think obviously that current government play that for all it's worth. Well find those people who are guilty of it, charge them and have them tried before the law. 

Definition:
