Chris Smith has pressed an independent candidate for North Sydney on her intentions behind her election campaign.
Kylea Tink admits she is funded in part by Climate 200, a non-profit group led by clean energy analyst Simon Holmes a Court.
The group is accused of helping parachute so-called “fake” independents into safe Liberal seats.
Ms Tink told Chris Smith she doesn’t have “a clear idea” on which party she’s going to preference.
“You don’t know?!” Chris shot back.
