Sticky mess: Police investigate violent ‘stab' Greens sticker in Mildura

POLICE are investigating after a call to “stab” supporters of The Greens was found placed on top of a Shooters, Fishers and Farmers (SFF) campaign sticker in Mildura.

The message was discovered on Saturday by Greens volunteers at the early voting centre on Fifteenth Street.

The original sticker, which proclaims “Stop the EXTREME Greens!”, is authorised SFF Victoria material.

Placed on the top was a message, without an authorisation, which read: “STAB ONE & SAVE CATTLE from harassment.”

Greens candidate for Mallee Nicole Rowan said the altered message was inciting violence and “completely inappropriate”.

Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidate Dan Straub said he was “pretty disgusted” by the message and would never condone harming or injuring people, regardless of their political beliefs.
