LIBERAL MP for McMillan Russell Broadbent has been targeted in a political graffiti message sprayed outside his electorate office in Warragul over the weekend.

The message “BAN LiVe EXPORT” was sprayed in bright pink paint on the footpath immediately outside Mr Broadbent’s office at an unknown time before 8am Monday.
A spokesperson from Mr Broadbent’s office told The Warragul Citizen the message was removed at around 9am today and nobody was sure when the message was sprayed.
Both the Liberal and Labor parties have policies allowing live export of animals overseas. The Liberal Party’s policy is to “restore policy stability and certainty to our live exports trade.”
Live exports have not been raised as an issue by any of the candidates contesting the seat in this Saturday’s election.
