Retiring Family First senator Bob Day and his companies pumped just under $2 million into the political party over the past seven years.

The South Australian senator on Monday announced he was resigning from the Senate to deal with the fallout from his Home Australia group of companies going into liquidation.

Senator Day apologised for the pain, stress and suffering caused by the collapse.

Greens senator Lee Rhiannon said Senator Day, who has left more than 200 people with incomplete homes, had questions to answer about his donations.

""The people who had been left high and dry by his building company were forced to watch as Senator Day bankrolled his own political career," she said.

"You can see why the public cynicism and contempt runs deep."

It is likely liquidators McGrathNicol will examine the political donations as part of its investigation into the management of the group.
