Internet mocks Bishop with memes over #choppergate
THE internet has taken the torch to Bronwyn Bishop over the choppergate scandal.
The politician has been in the spotlight following her decision to charge taxpayers for a short helicopter ride to a political fundraiser.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has put her on "probation" following the $5000 taxpayer-funded helicopter flight.
Using the hashtag #choppergate, Twitter users have mercilessly mocked Bishop with memes.
Many of them show Bishop doing outrageous things.
The most shared is of the politician "walking the dog" using a helicopter.
There's a lesson for politicians in the episode: be careful what you do because the internet can make you pay.
Toowoomba residents have been outraged by the scandal with at least two calling for the politician to resign.
These are some of the best memes:
