INDEPENDENT candidate Arjay Martin has suffered another attack on his car in the lead up to the Charlestown by-election.
The words “Vote 1 idiot” were scratched across the windscreen on Monday night while his car was parked on the street near his Dudley home.
He said the scratches “appeared to be an inch thick” and followed incidents earlier this month where two wing-mirrors were broken, his car was egged, and someone dented it.
“Someone’s obviously got up on the bonnet to write it,” Mr Martin said.
“I’d rather people combat me with words, rather than damaging my private property.”
He has reported the incident to police.
Attacks on the same car during previous campaigns cost him about $1500.
