Queensland's trouble-plagued arts minister reportedly accepted campaign donations from a technology company, which has since been granted significant access to her office.
Donor disclosures reveal Ros Bates received $3000 from Technology One during her campaign for re-election in Mudgeeraba in the final days of the 2012 election campaign, the Courier-Mail reports.
Earlier this month, Ms Bates came under attack in parliament about why she tabled an inaccurate lobbyist register.
She said she amended the register - adding eight meetings, emails and phone calls with Mr Santoro and 14 with representatives from Santoro Consulting - when she realised a staffer had accidentally left a page out of her register.
Donor disclosures show Technology One gave two separate amounts of $1500 to the "Mudgeeraba candidate" on March 16, The Courier-Mail reported.
Ms Bates recorded the $1500 amounts as donations from individuals, rather than the company, in her disclosure documents, it said.
Both individual donors listed by Ms Bates, Steve Terry and Roger Phare, hold senior positions with Technology One.
Under Queensland donation laws, individuals and business can only donate up to $2000 to each candidate.
A spokesman for the LNP told the newspaper the donations to Ms Bates had been properly declared.
