A Socialist Left candidate in the Darebin local elections was yesterday caught in the act of stealing an opponent’s campaign material, in breach of the election laws, on the means streets of Bundoora.
Serial unsuccessful candidate, creepy Gaetano Greco was apprehended by camera-wielding campaign workers for popular local councillor Dr Stanley Cheng.
They were appalled by the day-light robbery, took photographs of him stealing the material and proceeded to give chase.
The coward beret-wearer was terrified by the four youthful and concerned campaigners, who collectively weighed less than the Leftist activist, and he ran with his cravat waving in Sunday’s warm wind.
He eventually found refuge in the sanctuary of a taxpayer funded Arts Centre where they protected him from a possible citizen’s arrest.
The left-wing militant faces potential complaints to the electoral officials, the Victorian Electoral Commission, the Victoria Police, the Office of Local Government and possibly the Ombudsman. If there is sufficient evidence, he will be charged with electoral and theft offences and face possible imprisonment for his crimes.
