Report: Kevin Rudd Ran Up A $500,000 Air Travel Bill In Just 5 Weeks

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd reportedly ran up a VIP travel bill of $100,000 a week for five weeks.

The Sunday telegraph says documents tabled in parliament show Rudd spent $500,000 in flights over five weeks, just less than current Prime Minister Tony Abbott has spent on air travel in three months.

The $100,000 a week bill was acquired during Rudd’s time as Prime Minister after replacing Julia Gillard in June, 2013.
