More Political Spam — Down Under

from the laws-don't-apply-to-politicians dept

Just like in the US, apparently the spam laws in Australia don’t apply to political messages. That seems fortune for Australia’s Prime Minister and his son. Apparently, the Prime Minister’s son is some sort of spammer, and the father hired the son’s company to spam voters with political messages pushing his campaign. There’s nothing anyone can do, since the messages are legal, but it’s yet another case where politicians clearly misunderstand their own constituents — and don’t seem to notice that people wonder why politicians exempt themselves from the laws they expect everyone else to follow. Of course, with election season rapidly approaching in the US, expect plenty of political spam here as well.
