Former parliamentarian Joan Rylah was featured in Tasmanian Liberal Party pamphlets distributed to homes after she had resigned.
Ms Rylah last month announced she would resign as a Braddon MHA more than a year after she had returned to Tasmanian Parliament on a recount.
Premier Peter Gutwein was contacted by Ms Rylah about her decision the morning it was made public.

On the same week, the Liberal Party distributed pamphelts statewide, specified to the five electoral divisions of the House of Assembly.
Although Clark member Sue Hickey did not appear in the pamphlet distributed around her electorate, Ms Rylah appeared in the Braddon one.
A state government spokesperson said the pamphlets were printed and organised for distribution before Ms Rylah’s resignation.
They said the brochure was funded by individual member resources.
House of Assembly members receive an electorate allowance of around $32,000 to $53,000 each year, depending on the size of their electorate.
This money can be used for travel costs, advertisement costs, on entertainment, or for newsletter and pamphlet drops.
