Counter-terrorism specialists are now assisting NSW Police in tracking down the person or group responsible for homophobic and antisemitic emails which have marred the candidates’ electioneering for Wentworth in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.

Dr Kerryn Phelps

As election days approaches, Independent candidate Dr Kerryn Phelps has been the subject of a new email which names her children.

One email states “it’s needful to stop Kerryn Phelps to be re-elected out of wentworth [sic].” It goes on to say that Kerryn Phelps is a lesbian who has adopted children, naming them.

The writer states “These kids don’t have a farther, but 2 mothers instead. It is disgusting indeed! ” [sic]

On the AFP actions, Dr Kerryn Phelps told the ABC: “I haven’t really had much of a response to these emails. They certainly don’t seem to be as concerned as the local police.”

Her Liberal opponent Dave Sharma has also been a victim of hate emails and used cybersecurity consultants to track the senders. Their results were sent to the AFP.

In another email about Dr Phelps, the writer stated: “She is a Jew which automatically gave her Israel citizenship according  to the Law of Return.” The email says Dr Phelps apologised to voters because “her fellow unvaccinated Jews spreading measles”.

Jackie Stricker-Phelps told J-Wire: “There are emails being sent everywhere attacking Kerryn for being Jewish and telling people not to vote for her but to vote for Dave Sharma 

They are shockingly anti-Semitic 

The AFP under Peter Dutton has done NOTHING in seven months to find the person sending them.

If they contained a terrorist threat they would have found the person in four hours 

Even a local business owner called me to say they received three in the last week and are shocked by the anti-Semitic content 

There needs to be pressure to find out who is attacking Kerryn for being Jewish and sending out increasingly disgusting emails about her.”

The offending emails first appeared around the time of the Wentworth by-election last October.
