Lambie denies approving PUP ad

Tasmanian Palmer United Party Senator-elect Jacqui Lambie has denied approving an advertisement that breaches the electoral act.

Ms Lambie also claimed the Liberal Party complaint about Monday's ad which featured photos of the leaders of the major parties without their consent, was an attempt to silence her.

''But given the fact that Tony Abbott and the Liberals have a track record of trying to put their political opponents in jail - I shouldn't be that surprised,'' Ms Lambie said this morning.

The advertisement, printed in a Hobart newspaper, stated it was authorised by Ms Lambie, but she says she did not give permission for her name to be used.

The penalty for the alleged breach of the Tasmanian Electoral Act is a fine up to $39,000 and a year in jail.

"If I've done anything wrong I'll cop it sweet. I'll become another political prisoner, however I welcome the chance to clear my name and find out the answers to a few important questions," Ms Lambie said.
