Oz official exits over hate mail

A senior Liberal Party official in Australia who described a fellow party candidate as a “greedy f***ing Jew” has resigned. Susan Chandler, the campaign manager for the Victoria branch of the party, also apologised to Adam Held, a Jewish candidate who stood unsuccessfully at last November’s federal election, for sending an email referring to him as a “greedy f***ing Jew” after he had requested more campaign material to distribute.
