  1. She is nasty in many other ways too.

    [Fraud campaign](https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2016/jul/09/how-a-chinese-language-social-media-campaign-hurt-labors-election-chances?CMP=share_btn_fb) by Gladys Liu, targeting Chinese communities. Instructing not to vote Labor or their families won’t get visas because Labor will be “flooding” the country with refugees. And blatant misinformation spreading fear about safe schools. Blatant defamation and fraud to sabotage. Illegal.

     And misleading voters [with signage](https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/may/21/oliver-yates-may-take-liberals-to-court-of-disputed-returns-over-deceptive-election-signs) on the day of the election.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://apnews.com/7de5a88c9e2548f9a13f32db6b0a9d43) reduced by 73%. (I’m a bot)

    > Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Tuesday that Chinese government records indicate that Liu, who migrated to Australia in 1985, was a member of two provincial councils of the China Overseas Exchange Association between 2003 and 2015.That association reported to the State Council, China's chief administrative authority, when Liu was a member, but has since merged with the United Front Work Department.

    > She has also come under fire for failing to condemn China's military grab for contested territory in the South China Sea.Asked in the Sky News interview if she agreed that China's efforts to take over most of the South China Sea were unlawful, she replied, "I definitely put Australia's interests first.”

    > "We do not take sides on competing territorial claims but we call on all claimants to resolve disputes peacefully and in accordance with international law," she said of Australia's policy on the South China Sea.Damien Kingsbury, a Deakin University expert on international politics, said the controversy surrounding Liu raised national security concerns.

  3. She’s most likely a spy.. they need to seriously look into her make sure she has no means to escape or leave.. we all have to come to the sobering conclusion that the Chinese have put people in important places for the purpose of espionage and technology theft..
