'GetUp is an independent...organisation'
'GetUp does not back any particular party'
Really? That's odd considering the recently departed GetUp boss is aiming to despatch the Liberal Senator for the Australian Capital Territory, Gary Humphries. And of course at the 2007 election they published a website that always put Coalition candidates last regardless of information put in - something they were warned about by the Australian Electoral Commission was 'misleading and deceptive'
But can anything they say on their website be believed? After all they say
'GetUp is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on small donations to fund its work and in-kind donations from the Australian public. GetUp does not accept donations from political parties or the Government.'
These are the same people who accepted a rather large $1.2 million donation from the far-left Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union in 2010 to fund an anti-Tony Abbott ad.
