By George, what a political kerfuffle

A POLITICAL fund raising website exposed as being in breach of electoral commission laws will face no repercussions.

The Australian Electoral Commission yesterday confirmed the website, www.byegeorge.com.au, registered by the Queensland Labor Branch to raise money for Federal ALP candidate Belinda Hassan's election campaign, was now in the clear.

The website did not include any authorisation details until it was brought to Labor's attention Monday afternoon.

Overnight, the caricature of Dawson MP George Christensen, drawn by Daily Mercury cartoonist Harry Bruce, was also removed from the site and replaced with a photograph.
