The "unpaid professional assistant" of Bess Price, the Country Liberals' candidate for Stuart, says her opponent Karl Hampton has sent electioneering materials to friends of hers who don't live in the electorate.
The assistant, Ms Price's husband Dave, says it appears Mr Hampton has used a mailing list belonging to Ms Price without her permission.
The whole thing is a bit of a family affair but tempers are rising.
Mr Hampton did not respond to our invitation to comment – but one of his minders gave a snutty reply. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
UPDATE JULY 30, 12:15pm
Hampton email recipient will "take this issue further".
