Christensen says convicted paedophile at booth

FEDERAL Member for Dawson George Christensen has raised concerns the Labor Party made poor background checks on their volunteers in Mackay, as he claims to have seen a convicted paedophile at a polling booth.

"I have rocked up to a polling booth and seen a very well-known, convicted sex offender handing out how to vote cards," Mr Christensen said.

"I know it's not illegal, but I thought it was concerning."

Queensland Labor State Secretary Evan Moorhead said he was investigating the report as a matter of urgency.

"Our legal team will be looking into this soon," Mr Moorhead said.

Mr Christensen shared the news on social media.
