Mr Gee's images have caused social upheaval, with many questions about where the taxpayer's money goes.
& # 39; And we (the taxpayers) pay the lazy sod to do its job! & # 39; said a person on Twitter.
& # 39; With people in the queue who don't get a chance to get a chance, we see MPs doing this & # 39 ;, another said.
& # 39; Probably 150k per year. Proof that these bastards are the most paid workers in the country. & # 39;
Gee, the former organizer of the Australian Manufacturing Workers & Union, has been in parliament since 2014.
He told The advertiser to & # 39; report on real news & # 39; when the solitary images came to light.

Gee is the first MP to be caught playing a game online since the live broadcast was introduced in 2017.
Wingard said South Australians expect their MPs to be involved in the process because it was their chance to review the budget.
& # 39; You are there to do work, you are there to ask questions. We have all officials ready to answer questions and it only shows that he is not interested in what he is doing, & said Mr. Wingard.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Mr. Gee for comment.
