Bligh won't back down

QUEENSLAND Premier Anna Bligh is refusing to concede LNP leader Campbell Newman is in the clear over political donations during his time as Brisbane's mayor.

On Friday afternoon the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) announced it had found no evidence of misconduct by Mr Newman in relation to three matters while he was Brisbane's Lord Mayor.
