Labor senator Sam Dastyari steps down after accepting money from Chinese donors

Labor senator Sam Dastyari has resigned from Labor’s frontbench after mounting criticism on the donations he received from a Chinese-linked company.
On Tuesday he apologised for allowing the company to pay off a $1,600 travel debt he owed to the Commonwealth.
It came after Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said Senator Dastyari made a mistake but he deserved a second chance.’s-front-bench/7823970
