A tipster tells us that LNProud, a group of LGBTI people who support the Liberal and National parties, are holding a fundraiser for Liberal MP Warren Entsch in Sydney next week, which will be attended by Entsch, Malcolm Turnbull and Christine Forster (Tony Abbott’s sister). According to the tipster, the fundraiser is necessary because Entsch is on the outs with party HQ:

“So why are a bunch of Sydney queens fundraising for a Queensland MP? Apparently head office are so pissed with Entsch for pushing the gay marriage barrow, they’ve told him he’s on his own when it comes to campaign funds come the general election. He won’t get a sniff from them. Once again the high homophobes in the coalition are prepared to lose a seat rather than be seen to be supporting the gays.”
