Greens candidate for David Feeney’s seat of Batman in Melbourne’s north, Alex Bhathal, has already blamed a Labor billboard for her campaign office being covered in graffiti, and a tipster tells us the imagery is being used in letter-boxing as well:

“Labor has been letterboxing in Batman with the following flyer (the green alien-like hand for the Greens figure is a nice touch). I live north of Bell St, which is the supposed divide between the traditional Labor voting territory in the north, and the stronger Greens territory in the south. I wonder if the same material (and approach) is being used throughout the electorate?”
