Jacqui Lambie Quits Parliament

One of Australia's most colourful politicians has fallen on her sword after becoming the latest senator to be ensnared in the citizenship fiasco.

Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambie has resigned.

While Senator Lambie said last week she was confident there was no issue with her citizenship, she is has now quit parliament.

Her father was born in Scotland, making her a citizen by descent. 

Senator Lambie’s  resignation makes her the eighth parliamentarian forced out because of dual citizenship.
