More information on Indro bogus flyer

6

Today’s Australian carries an article reporting on fake how-to-vote cards handed out by a “Kristy Burchert”  in Indooroopilly calling Greens MP Ronan Lee a “turncoat” and asking voters to “Just Vote 1”. I reported on the flier yesterday morning while voting was going on, and I’ve now got my hands on some details which add credibility to the argument that the flier was distributed as part of the Liberal campaign.

I’ve uploaded a PDF version of the flyer. Below I have included photos demonstrating links between the flyer and the Liberal National Party.

  1. The authorisation address appears to be a sharehousing flat according to a Google search and a cached RealEstate.com.au page. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the work of a young Liberal.

  2. Young liberals are active in the area and from my experiences with them, sounds totally consistent.

    The just vote 1 signs out my way were authorised by an address somewhere in Bridgeman Downs. It is almost pointless having the authorisation. Only people like me read it, and action can only be taken until it is too late.

    Perhaps election day signage should be registered before polling day as the HTVs are now.

    PS Was this HTV registered? The ECQ didn’t go to any effort to put them on display if they were.

  3. Interesting. Well there were some strange goings on in the seat of Chatsworth. No Greens candidate to be seen on the day. The ‘How to Vote’ card was printed/authorised by the LNP and preferenced the LNP candidate. I thought the only deal the Greens had done was the one to try to get Ronan over the line. I guess there was at least one other – behind closed doors. Also to note, there was an independant running under the guise of the DLP – a party from the 50s or something that is anti-mainstream parties like the LNP and ALP. Well this guy was also preferencing the LNP candidate. So don’t be surprised in the LNP win this seat by preferences.
