“The ABC’s allegation that the LNP has referred Deb Frecklington to the ECQ is false. It has not,” a party spokesman said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The LNP regularly communicated with the ECQ to ensure that we comply with the Act.”
A source close to the campaign has told Brisbane Times the report has sent the campaign into crisis mode.
“Crisis would be an understatement. It’s chaos,” the source says.
It comes as Ms Frecklington prepares to attend an official LNP fundraiser on Tuesday, alongside Prime Minister Scott Morrison in Brisbane.
The Labor government passed laws in 2018, backdated until before the 2017 Queensland election, banning property developers from donating money to state and local government politicians, candidates and parties.
