Pauline Hanson vote challenge has been derailed with evidence lead in court that the allegation of missing votes was fraudulent. (ABC News). Mr. Sean Castle, the man behind the fraudulent allegations is likely to face court costs associated with Hanson challenge after he admitted to faking the allegations but will escape public prosecution in return for goving evidence..
"Mr Castle, a father of three, was granted protection from prosecution before being compelled to answer questions relating to the purported Electoral Commission email.
