VIDEO: Pauline Hanson blindsided by One Nation link to domestic violence FB posts


In a sensational election campaign development, Pauline Hanson has been rocked by an admission from one of her candidates that he owns a sex shop linked to graphic online domestic violence posts.

The One Nation Leader interrupted her candidate’s news conference after hearing Mark Thornton confirm he owns a sex shop, which is managed by his wife.


The candidate for Thuringowa in Townsville confirmed he was the owner of Cupid’s Cabin adult shop which had the comment “Good sex should be in the gray (sic) area between ‘tickle fight’ and domestic violence” posted on its page.

Senator Hanson interrupted the press conference demanding to know more about the posts.

Once told the details by a reporter, Senator Hanson admitted she did not know about the business.

She said she will consult with Queensland One Nation Leader Steve Dickson about Mr Thornton’s future.
