'Scallywags' de-facing George Christensen's signs

FEDERAL Member for Dawson George Christensen has taken to social media to call out the 'scallywags' who keep defacing his campaign signs.

The vandals have cut Mr Christensen's face out of the sign in Cannonvale for a second time.


Last month signs on Shute Harbour Road between Mt Julian and Cannonvale were targeted, with a knife used to cut Mr Christensen's face from three of the placards.  

A further four signs had a strip cut from their middle.  

Mr Christensen said the attack was more extreme than most.  

"Normally you might get a few signs pinched during a campaign or some people mucking around might deface them," he said.
