From an integrity point of view, Ambrose should not have been selected for a cabinet appointment initially to start with. The PM thought that in 2006 he was making a wise political decision to woo him into the party, and solidify Labor’s base, but he had not had the depth of perspective or maturity to know or care of the implications of that appointment given the former minister’s earlier questionable deals including the FBI detention. I suppose the constituents did not care either. It took so long to see a trend with the former minister: get rich quick at all costs. Unfortunately many politicians adopt similiar habits. Some just don’t get caught.

I don’t think the cabinet needed to have been expanded however, with another senator. Looks like the same old “job for the boys” politics scenario at the cost of taxpayers.
