Labor figures have rejected claims by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews that he knew nothing about its rorts-for-votes scheme. They claim that either Andrews or caucus approved the scheme, which was engineered by former Labor treasurer John Lenders, and they contend that caucus had no knowledge of the scheme.
