10 months Australian poll candidate quits over video fuss Manilatimes |World
CANBERRA, Australia: A candidate in Australia’s upcoming general election has quit his anti-Muslim political party after a video of him groping and propositioning dancers in a US strip club was broadcast on national television. Steve Dickson had been Queensland state president of the One Nation Party and a Senate candidate in the May 18 elections. The 56-year-old resigned from the party after Nine Network television on Monday night broadcast his antics in the Washington, D.C. club in September that were secretly videoed by Al Jazeera.
