LNP candidate ran porn website: report
The LNP is facing another pre-selection embarrassment after reports its candidate for the seat of Albert, Mark Boothman, ran a pornography website several years ago.
The Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper is reporting Mr Boothman helped design a now defunct pornographic website that ran online untilbefore he was pre-selected.
The LNP has already had to sack two candidates for the nearby Gold Coast seat of Broadwater - one over a drink-driving charge goldcoast the other for attending a swingers party. However, he would not say whether Mr Boothman would be disendorsed if the alleged conduct breaches the party's standards, if the claims are true.
If Mr Boothman is sacked or stands aside, the LNP will not be able to field another candidate in the northern Gold Coast seat because nominations for the March election have closed.
