LNP sack calls grow

A FORMER federal Liberal MP, dumped by the LNP last year, has joined calls for heads to roll over today's revelations of dirt files on Labor MPs.

It was today revealed the LNP had paid $3705 for ''consultancy'' by former Labor staffer and federal candidate Robert Hough to prepare "dirt files" on ALP members.

Deputy Premier Andrew Fraser demanded LNP campaign director James McGrath and state director Michael O'Dwyer be sacked in response to the revelations, but LNP leader Campbell Newman this morning said while they would not be sacked, they had been reprimanded.

Former member for Ryan Michael Johnson was expelled from the LNP in May 2010 for bringing the party into disrepute.

Mr Johnson told brisbanetimes.com.au LNP president Bruce McIver should stand down for allowing the LNP to carry out such work.
