Brenden Sheehan, the high profile spokesperson for the Muliaga family has withdrawn as Labour’s candidate in Botany. A press release put out by the party says Brenden’s chosen to pull out in order to give his time and energy to a seriously ill family member.

Nominations close on June 20.

The same presser also contains a rather charming typo in which the new electorate Botany is described as ‘ethically diverse’ – cool, I want to live there!

  1. I don’t believe “ethically diverse” is a typo when applied to Botany 🙂

  2. Nice the way he book ended his short lived political career.
    Opened with distortions about a tragivc death of a “relative” ended with the supposed illness of a “relative”.
    I note his blog went down last night. Now that making sh1t up is seemingly acceptable on this site (see steve interviewing his keyboard on Key donations) I should wonder whether Mike Williams dashed over and switched it off after they came to the realisation that the coronial inquest made a lie of almost everything Clark and Sheehan did and said after that death.

    Botany is a great electorate ethnically and ethically, at least within the local Labour Party. I can’t say much about the ethics of the Tory bloggers whose commentaries are at the same level as Barnsleybill.
    It’s a pity that political debate should be reduced to the river bottom levels demonstrated by the local national party bloggers.
