Tim Wilson helped IPA and solicited Liberal party endorsement while in human rights position

Wilson used his Human Rights Commission email account to help book an Institute of Public Affairs speaker and seek help with preselection bid

Tim Wilson provided direct assistance to the Institute of Public Affairs and solicited endorsement for his looming 2016 Liberal preselection battle while in the office of human rights commissioner, previously secret correspondence shows.

A trove of internal emails, which Wilson fought to keep from being released, shows the now Liberal MP for Goldstein used his official human rights commission email account to help arrange an international speaker for a major IPA event, organise his own attendance at functions for IPA donors, and ask for a political endorsement from someone who approached him in his capacity as human rights commissioner.
