Coalition, Fielding stymie public accountability    The Coalition and Family First today blocked six patently reasonable reforms to the Electoral  Act to keep a system of Howard‐era cover‐ups and political murk in place, Greens Leader Bob  Brown said today.    “They voted against fair democratic reform aimed at reducing the influence of wealthy donors.  It corrupts politics. Senator Fielding has relegated the idea of putting the interests of families’  first,” Senator Brown said.    Further information: Ebony Bennett 0409 164 603
