The Victorian state election is becoming a three-way Mexican stand-off between Labor, the Liberals and the Greens, except that everyone has their guns trained on their own feet.

Two Labor candidates have withdrawn in unclear circumstances, while the Greens have been embarrassed by old Facebook posts by upper house candidate Joanna Nilson (who then resigned), and the old/new rap lyrics of Footscray hopeful Angus McAlpine (who, amazingly, didn't).

And now, Liberal Party candidate for the marginal Victorian seat of Yan Yean, Meralyn Klein, has apparently stepped down following the surfacing of an anti-Muslim rant that featured in a video by anti-Islam group Australian Liberty Alliance.
