Aussie politician threatens to contact employers of satirical article "likers"

Chuq (8564) writes | about 2 years ago

Australia 2

Chuq writes "Tasmanian Liberal candidate for Bass, Andrew Nikolic, was the subject of a satirical article by NewExaminer on Facebook. Nikolic didn’t like it, which is understandable. However he then went to considerable lengths to identify the people who liked the article, find out their employers (via their Facebook profiles) and "name and shame" them on a follow-up post on his own page.
Andrew Nikolic has a history of poorly handling conflicting views on his Facebook page, resulting in creation of another page, "Andrew Nikolic blocked me"."

Technically he's not a politician, but he is a fairly high profile candidate for a seat where the incumbent is not that popular!

Obviously not the brightest bulb in the lot.
