Assistant minister Andrew Broad has quit the frontbench in the wake of a sex scandal that could rock the Morrison government, amid claims he met a "sugar baby" in overseas hotels on a trip funded by taxpayers.

Mr Broad has been named in a New Idea magazine feature that says he spent time in Hong Kong with a "blonde beauty" who used the online alias "Sweet Sophia Rose" on a website to connect young women with wealthier older men.

The accuser is now the subject of a referral to the Australian Federal Police.

"I have been advised that the person making the allegation may have engaged in criminal activity," Mr Broad told New Idea.

"This matter has been reported to the Australian Federal Police and I will not be making any further comment."

The Nationals MP, who represents the federal electorate of Mallee in regional Victoria, was the assistant minister to Deputy Prime Minister and Nationals leader Michael McCormack.

Mr Broad did not respond to a request for comment.

The New Idea article claims Mr Broad connected with the woman through a dating website and they eventually met in Hong Kong.

"He told me he was in Hong Kong for a conference but he shouldn’t have been here at all," the woman claimed.

"He kept saying that he was very important and that when he left he was going to have to throw away his phone. He referred to himself as James Bond numerous times."

Mr McCormack said in a statement he had accepted Mr Broad’s resignation and thanked him for his service since his promotion to the frontbench in September.

Mr McCormack said that "due to the nature of the allegations made, it is appropriate for Mr Broad to resign" but he declined to make any further comment on the grounds that the matters were subject to future investigation.

Mr McCormack said Mr Broad would continue as an "effective and hardworking" member for Mallee, which is one of the Coalition's safest seats.

Mr Broad was the first Coalition MP to call for former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce to resign in February after details of an affair with staffer Vikki Campion became public.

Asked to respond to Mr Broad's announcement, Labor treasury spokesman Chris Bowen said: "His resignation does not help the chaos and dysfunction at the heart of the government."

Mr McCormack said that he learned of the matter two weeks ago and urged Mr Broad to go to the AFP, but he did not answer a question directly about whether he was concerned about the MP’s conduct.

“I urged him to go to the AFP. The AFP is investigating it. The fact is they’re very diligent, they’re very earnest and they will uncover, if there has been impropriety done, they will uncover that,” Mr McCormack said.

“Mr Broad has made the right decision this morning when I accepted his resignation.

“I want to make sure that all of my ministers, all of my members are doing the right thing.

“The National Party stands for better regional services. We do what is right for regional Australia and these sorts of things, they take away from the good message that we are selling.

“We have been a very good government.”

Mr McCormack would not say more about the matter on the grounds that it was being investigated by police.

“The fact is it was a matter for the AFP, the fact is we don’t want to distract in any way, shape or form from what we’re saying and doing as a government.

“Andrew has taken the right step to resign this morning. I have accepted that resignation. That is the right and proper course of action.”

Mr McCormack said the government had a “very good story” with the latest figures in the mid-year budget update, with low unemployment and lower taxes, and did not need the “distraction” from the story about Mr Broad.

He also said he had acted quickly on strong criticisms of a Nationals adviser had been put on “indefinite leave” after sending vile text messages to a journalist after she reported on moves against Nationals Senator Barry O’Sullivan.

“The fact is, over the past 24 hours, we’ve had a couple of things which have been very unfortunate and I’ve acted decisively and swiftly to make sure the appropriate course of action was taken,” he said.

It is completely unreasonable to expect pollies or public servants to work 24 hours a day when on travel expenses.

In general, if such a traveller, in his break from work, chooses to have a bit of company when staying at accommodation paid for on said travel expense, then good luck to him.

I certainly did, although being on a lower wage, I dated amateurs not professionals.

If, on the other hand, he charges such services to his or her employer, then that is wrong and should be a sackable offence.

of course the morals around a National Party member rooting someone other than his partner (Rachel Mellings) is obviously acceptable within the right side of politics

They may be married now but there is a lot of alleged rumpy pumpy whilst previously marriage.

The other examples, apart from Barnaby, are essentially allegations too, such a a Government Minister and the Leader of another party.

This is not the American Democratic Party where this sort of behaviour has been institutionalised, Particularly their presidents.

I am more concerned about what politicians do to Australia than about what they do to others.

Anyone who thinks any one political party (in the USA, Australia or elsewhere) is better or worse in how its members treat women or the sexual morals or behaviour of its members is better or worse than another is too blind to reality to judge. I also don't see why whether a person's behaviour before or after becoming a politician makes any difference. Does someone suddenly adopt some stricter moral code once they become a politician? If we start making lists of opposing politician's bad behaviour will that prove anything? "Mine's bigger than yours" and all that?

The biggest problem with people in the public eye is the development (or should I say over-development) of their ego's. The ego gets so big they actually forget to be real.

Pioneer and various farm implement companies will be increasing their donations to the Nats as they are just as good at spreading seed as PTO seed spreaders.
