Who is Kimberley Kitching's husband? 

According to reports, Kitching was married to Andrew Landeryou, a former political blogger. The two tied the knot in 2000. Landeryou is the son of Bill Landeryou, an ex-member of the Victorian Legislative Council. He started a blog called ‘The Other Cheek – Andrew Landeryou's Blog of Freedom’ in 2005 but three years later, it was deleted. After that, he founded a tabloid website named VEXNEWS. However, that also did not run for long and got shut down in 2013. 

There is no statement from Landeryou or his family yet regarding Kitching's death. But the internet was filled with condolence and tribute messages. Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said, “I am deeply, genuinely and so terribly upset to hear the tragic news about a dear person and dear friend, Senator Kimberley Kitching. She was a beautiful woman and this is a tragic loss. I know she is with our Lord, and I offer my sincerest and deepest condolences to her family.”
