Lambie asks radio caller, 'Are you well hung?'

Tasmanian Palmer United Party Senator Jacqui Lambie has this morning told a commercial radio station that she looks for ``lots of cash and a package between their legs'' when searching for a partner. 

Radio hosts Kim and Dave from Heart 107.3 revealed Senator Lambie had been without a partner for 11 years and offered to help her find a partner in a Bachelorette-style call out.

``They've got to have lots of cash and a package between their legs,'' Senator Lambie told the hosts.

``They don't even need to speak,'' she said.

Jamie, a 22-year-old caller, rang in to express interest in courting Senator Lambie.

Senator Lambie asked Jamie whether he had "plenty of cash''.

''I'm just a bit concerned at being 22 years of age and living in Tasmania you might not be quite there yet,'' Senator Lambie told Jamie.

Jamie informed Senator Lambie he had a small fortune.

``I am a bit concerned, because you are so young, that you may not be able to handle Jacqui Lambie,'' she said.

Jamie said he had "been about a bit'', to which the senator responded: ``You don't have any diseases do you?''

One of the hosts told Jamie there was a crucial question left for Senator Lambie to ask.

``I guess, are you well hung?'' Senator Lambie asked.

Jamie says he was "hung like a donkey'' and a breakfast date was arranged, but not before Jamie swiftly disappeared from the line.

By mid afternoon, after Lambie’s interview had gone viral, she released a statement saying: ‘‘I apologise to any radio listeners who may be offended by my comments on Kim and Dave’s show.

‘‘Of course my political enemies will make a big deal out of my comments, but the reality is I was talking with Kim and Dave on Heart FM - not Sarah Ferguson on the ABC.

‘‘I also told Kim and Dave about the $3000 a year that the Palmer United Senate team saved average Australian families at the last sitting of Parliament, but of course those comments didn’t receive nationwide coverage – go figure!’’
