A federal minister has been forced to apologise to a mayor after allegedly swearing and physically intimidating her.
Grandmother Fay Miller, 71, who is also the mayor of Katherine in the Northern Territory, accused Environment Minister Greg Hunt of telling her to ‘f**king get over’ herself, the Herald Sun reported.
Ms Miller and Mr Hunt met in Canberra last December to discuss a health package, which concerned her town regarding a chemical contamination from nearby RAAF Base Tindal.

She told Herald Sun she had written twice to Mr Hunt and once to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking for an explanation and apology, but said she was not contacted for six months.
Ms Miller said being shocked by Mr Hunt’s alleged outburst would be an understatement, as she would never tolerate to be treated with arrogance by anyone like that.
Ms Miller said Mr Hunt apologised to her on Wednesday, after he was sent detailed questions from the Herald Sun. She described the apology as ‘sincere and genuine.’
A spokesman for Mr Hunt told the Herald Sun, that the minister apologised directly to the mayor but denied behaving aggressively.
