Just when voters thought they had seen it all in the 2019 federal election, a volunteer for Clive Palmer’s party has allegedly pulled his pants down and exposed himself at a polling booth.
Police removed the man, who was dressed in a yellow United Australia Party T-shirt, from a school in western Sydney on Saturday morning.
A New South Wales Police spokesman told Nine/Fairfax papers the man “had been involved in a dispute with several other people”.
“Police will allege the man then committed an offensive act in front of at least three women and one man,” the spokesman said.
“Police issued the man an infringement notice for offensive conduct and a move-on direction.”
The 62-year-old was fined for offensive conduct after being ejected from Bankstown Public School shortly after 10am.
The United Australia Party is running candidates in 150 out of 151 lower house seats.
Labor party volunteer Marian Mourad told SBS News the alleged offender called her a “moron” before exposing himself.
“He was very problematic and aggressive,” Ms Mourad said.
