LNP whistle-blower who exposed Miller to be stood down
SPEAKER Peter Wellington will admonish the LNP whistle-blower who exposed disgraced Bundamba MP Jo-Ann Miller's bungled handling of sensitive corruption watchdog documents.
The parliamentary ethics committee recommended the punishment for Warrego MP Ann Leahy in a highly critical report.
It is the first time since 1999 the punishment has been recommended.
Ms Leahy will be stood down from all committee duties for six months.
Ms Leahy wrote to the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk last year raising concerns about 90 highly sensitive documents.
The documents, which contained information about sensitive investigations, were left in Ms Miller's PCCC safe which was subsequently sent to Ms Leahy following Labor's shock election win.
Ms Leahy's correspondence ultimately led to Ms Miller's fall from grace after the ethics committee investigation said she acted recklessly and her behaviour was not of the standard expected of a minister.
Premier Palaszczuk sensationally sacked Ms Miller from the police portfolio on December 3, 2015 after the report was handed down.
Ms Miller ended up falling on her sword and resigning from Cabinet on December 4 after her position became untenable.
Ms Miller was never far away from headlines last year after she bounced from scandal to scandal - putting a vast majority of her colleagues offside in the process.
Ipswich MP Jim Madden also resigned from the ethics committee during the final parliamentary sitting week of 2015 after he revealed he was the source of a damning Queensland Times article about Ms Miller.
