Don Meredith scandal
A Tory senator says the Senate cannot take away the pension that Meredith paid into.
Rumours about the senator's office became "too much noise" to ignore for one senator.
It's now up to the full Senate to decide whether to accept or reject the recommendation.
The prominent criminal lawyer said he agreed on Monday to help Meredith, 52, after meeting him for the first time on the weekend.
