A political staffer resigned last night over doing what politicals staffers do every day -- leaked some details to the press to ensure coverage.

Employment Minister Michaelia Cash's advisor David De Garis quit after Cash had told Senate estimates her office hadn't tipped journalists off about the Australian Federal Police raid on the Australian Workers Union earlier this week. Cash had denied her office's involvement five times before BuzzFeed dropped the bombshell that, in fact, it was one of the minister's staffers who'd told journalists in Melbourne and Sydney an hour before the raids with details, "emphasising that it would take place at a union office". De Garis resigned after BuzzFeed's story was published.
