"LABOR had sex with Queensland for the last decade", according to Queensland Parliament's ethics committee leader.
Liberal National Party MP for Redlands Peter Dowling jumped to the LNP's defence on Twitter after Treasurer Tim Nicholls tweeted a photograph of himself and the Queensland Premier Campbell Newman drinking whisky on the Gold Coast on Thursday night.
Leanne Donaldson, Labor's candidate for the seat of Hinkler, quipped: "Are you celebrating screwing over Queenslanders?"
Mr Dowling replied: "No. We are getting Qld back on track! Labor had sex with Qld for last decade or more. Your bad."
His comments have been described as "childish at best" by Australian Christian Lobby state director Wendy Francis.
