Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (pictured) has raised $50,000 in just four days to fund legal action against NSW Liberal Democrat Senator David Leyonhjelm over their bitter slanging match which Conservbative Party leader Cory Bernardi has labelled, "unedifying".
The Advertiser reports, on Friday morning a gofundme page for the Greens senator had raised $50,272 , after 1,476 people pledged their support.
Senator Leyonhjelm is also seeking donations to defend defamation action from Senator Hanson-Young and says any excess funds will be used to fight the Greens at elections.
He has refused to apologise and compensate the SA Green for comments he made about her personal life in media interviews.
Senator Bernardi has told Kel Richards on Sydney radio station 2CH he's not surprised the conflict appears to have spun out of control.
