New footage has emerged suggesting Fianna Fáil TD Lisa Chambers cast votes on behalf of a colleague in the Dáil.
The Sunday Independent reports that she cast seven votes while sitting in her Fianna Fáil colleague Timmy Dooley's chair last January.
The paper reports that Fianna Fáil health spokesperson Stephen Donnelly was casting votes from her seat at the same time.
Votes were also being cast from Deputy Donnelly’s seat; however, the footage does not record who was sitting in his seat.
Deputy Dooley has said he was in the chamber at the time the votes were cast – with Dáil records showing he was present in Leinster House.
Deputy Chambers apologised to the Dáil earlier this year after it emerged she voted on behalf of her colleague Dara Calleary – insisting it was an honest mistake.
Last week, the Dáil ethics watchdog said she should be given a warning over the incident and warned her that if further breaches were uncovered, it could find that she acted “recklessly.”
The Committee on Members Interests decided not to take any action Fianna Fáil Deputy Barry Cowen, while a decision on potential sanctions against Niall Collins and Timmy Dooley was delayed until the New Year.
