A campaigner for Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party allegedly exposed himself at a south-west Sydney polling booth. 

The 62-year-old man got into an argument with several people before allegedly committing the act at Restwell Street booth in Bankstown on Saturday. 

The man, wearing a yellow hat and shirt in support of the party, allegedly dropped his pants ‘in front of at least 3 women and one man’, a police statement read.  

Police arrived at the polling booth at Bankstown Public School at about 10 am and fined the 62-year-old, who was also ordered to leave the premises. 

Labor campaigner Marian Mourad, a witness, told SBS the ‘aggressive and problematic’ man began ‘abusing’ her and calling her a ‘moron’. 

Ms Mourad said she saw the accused ‘undo his zip’ and reported the matter to police immediately. 

‘We’re in a public place, we’re in a public school, there are kids here coming to the Saturday school,’ she said.
