Moira Deeming, a Liberal MP who was suspended from the party room for nine months over her involvement with an anti-trans rights rally, has threatened to sue Victorian Opposition Leader John Pesutto over comments he made about her presence at the rally. Anonymous Liberal MPs have claimed that Pesutto bullied a rookie MP in a party room meeting, and supporters of Pesutto have demanded that “terrorist” MPs stop undermining the Liberal leader. Deeming has said she wants the vote that resulted in her suspension recast and has issued an email of demand that said she wanted a media statement from Pesutto by 2pm or he would face legal action. Senior Liberal MPs have already begun discussing if Deeming should now be expelled from the party room over her legal action. Former leaders, including Matthew Guy, are among those backing Pesutto.
