You do get the odd one who is seems straight as a die. But they're usually in safe seats. For a backbencher in a marginal seat, a $200,000 package and $130,000 pa tax free indexed for life if you can last for three elections is a strong incentive to do whatever it takes. And favours have to be repaid.
