A new rorts scandal has engulfed the NSW government.

Emails, which emerged last week, have ensnared Premier Gladys Berejiklian and deputy premier John Barilaro in an ugly pork-barrelling claim connected to the 2019 state election. 

The emails show the premier had direct oversight of at least $100 million worth of funds in the $250 million so-called Stronger Communities Program.
