Shorten denies ever meeting disgraced NT politician
Bill Shorten has claimed he never met a Labor senate candidate who shared an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory online, despite being pictured with him. Wayne Kurnorth shared a post in 2015 that claimed the world is being run by a society of Jewish shapeshifting lizards. He has since been disendorsed by the Labor Party in the Northern Territory.

Labor NT Senate candidate Wayne Kurnorth resigned after it was revealed he had shared an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory and posted an Islamic State-themed meme online. In his morning press conference, Mr Shorten said he had never met Mr Kurnorth. But footage and a photograph showing the men have met have since emerged, forcing Labor to correct the record.
