Michaelia Cash threatens to detail "rumours" about women in Shorten's office

Minister for Jobs Michaelia Cash is captured in a moment of anger during a tense Senate estimates hearing at Parliament House in Canberra, Wednesday, February 28, 2018. 

Senator Cash threatened to reveal the names of young women in Opposition Leader Bill Shorten's office who she says are the subject of "rumours".

She did not say what these rumours are or who they are about, and later said she takes back the comments if they caused offence.

The threat was made in response to questions from Labor senator Doug Cameron about the employment record of her new chief of staff.
