Hinch hits back at claims adviser has broken state election rules

3aw mornings

Derryn Hinch has rejected claims one of his advisers has broken any rules in the lead up to the Victorian election.

“Preference whisperer” Glenn Druery has been accused of interfering with the state election by the Reason Party.

Mr Druery is a taxpayer-funded employee of the Justice Party, but has taken leave to pursue his role as a businessman helping other parties with their preferences.

Mr Hinch told Neil Mitchell he was completely aware of what Mr Druery was doing and was OK with it.

“I’ve read all the details and rules of elections and I don’t see that he’s committed any offence at all,” Senator Hinch said on 3AW.

Mr Hinch said he expected Daniel Andrews to remain Premier.

“I don’t know if he deserves to win it – I don’t think he does,” he said.

“The Libs haven’t exactly done a great job.

“I don’t think they’ve campaigned that well.”
