Greens MP Lidia Thorpe has received a number of vile death and rape threats this week after she called for Australian flags to be flown at half-mast on Australia Day. Police were alerted after a man tried to enter Ms Thorpe's electorate office in Northcote on Wednesday afternoon, then slipped an expletive-littered note under the locked door that read that all "black" people should be killed. An office staff member watched the man walk south along High Street after he left the note.
Police have cleared two Labor MPs who claimed a taxpayer-funded second residence allowance for living outside of their western suburban electorates while residing on the Bellarine Peninsula. Andrews government MPs Telmo Languiller and Don Nardella resigned as speaker and deputy speaker of Victoria's Parliament last February after The Age revealed they had claimed tens of thousands of dollars to live in the coastal towns of Queenscliff and Ocean Grove.
Police have cleared two Labor MPs, including one who called Ballarat home, over taxpayer-funded second residence allowances. Andrews government MPs Telmo Languiller and Melton MP Don Nardella, who had a home in Ballarat, resigned as speaker and deputy speaker of Victoria's Parliament last February.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
