Statement by Mark Boothman, LNP candidate for Albert

I regret the media focus on my involvement in a website that was shut down six years ago.

The site in question was originally set up almost ten years ago as a forum for car enthusiasts.

But, unfortunately over a period of time, adult content was uploaded to the site.

In 2004, the site was continually under attack from hackers, and was being hijacked from its original purpose and was getting beyond my control. Because of this it was shutdown in 2006.

As a family man I am embarrassed about the publicity that this episode in my early life has generated, as I have done nothing wrong.

This experience is behind me – and I am more determined than ever to contest the seat of Albert as the LNP candidate.

It’s time for change in Queensland – and I believe only the LNP can put Queensland back on track.
