Lee Rhiannon MLC - Australian Greens Political Donations Project: The data is compiled from returns to the AEC but it appears that Lee Rhiannon's office is the only body attempting to combine and analyse data on an issue fundamental for the future of democracy. Where are the academics? Where are the journalists? Some of the most interesting results so far are that while the NSW ALP received over $5m from unions in the period 1998-2001, about 75% of its total donations came from other sources.
