One Nation Candidate Filmed Groping Dancer In US Strip Club
One Nation senate candidate Steve Dickson is expected to be sacked on Tuesday after footage emerged of him groping dancers and making disparaging comments about a woman in a Washington DC strip club.
The party's Queensland leader Steve Dickson was also caught saying "I've done more Asian than I know what to do with" and that strip clubs are better in the Philippines because women dance on top of the bars and "then take everything off", the footage recorded by Al Jazeera during an undercover investigation shows.
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has called an early morning press conference at her property in Queensland, where the Courier-Mail says she's expected to sacked Mr Dickson.
The recording was captured by an undercover journalist and was leaked to Nine's A Current Affair which broadcast the footage on Monday night.
Al Jazeera has said in a statement overnight that it had not run the footage in its report and condemns the "unauthorised use of its material."
Mr Dickson, who is married, also makes disparaging remarks about women.
It comes more than a month after the Al Jazeera investigation released footage from a meeting between Mr Dickson, Senator Hanson's chief of staff James Ashby and the National Rifle Association in Washington, DC in September 2018.
In footage Mr Dickson is recorded as saying that with enough funding, One Nation would get the balance of power and have control over the government, to be able to weaken Australia's gun laws.
Senator Hanson stood by the men after the footage was aired and insisted Mr Dickson was a "family man".
"He's a good man and Steve Dickson would never ever want to water down the gun laws in Australia, the same as I won't," she said at the time.
