Submission + - Faulty fax machine may have cost the Sex Party seat in the Senate

Presto Vivace writes: Faulty fax machine blamed in Sex Party spat over Senate seat

An argument has broken out between the Liberal Democratic Party and the Republican Party of Australia on one side and the Sex Party over a failure to lodge group voting tickets with the Australian Electoral Commission.

Liberal Democrat leader David Leyonhjelm said his party’s tickets for Victoria were not lodged by the required deadline because a wrong number was dialled on a fax machine.

Why can't the US has controversies like this? I want to move to Australia! The fax machine then chewed up the documents.
