Moderna Booster Shot

The prime minister’s office has condemned the actions of a staffer working for federal Liberal MP

Andrew Laming, calling their choice to dress up as

Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was last month acquitted on all charges after shooting dead two Black Lives Matter protesters last year, for a delayed Halloween party as “completely inappropriate”.

Today the Guardian revealed that electoral officer

Barclay McGain – who was sacked (and later rehired) by Lamming over a controversial schoolies video that denigrated Indigenous Australians – had posted a photo of himself on Facebook holding a gel blaster gun that bears resemblance to an assault rifle, dressed as US teen Kyle Rittenhouse on the night he killed two men during protests for racial justice in Wisconsin last year. Rittenhouse was last month cleared of all charges related to these deaths and the injury of another man after his lawyers argued he acted in self-defence.

A federal government spokesman said McGain behaviour was “completely inappropriate and the prime minister’s office has contacted Mr Laming to raise its serious concerns and options for further action”.

The employment of electoral staff is the responsibility of individual MPs, and while McGain used to be a member of the Liberal party he resigned after being suspended in relation to the schoolies video.

When contacted by Guardian Australia, McGain said he was “not particularly worried” that the costume would affect his employment status, as it was outside work hours and Rittenhouse had been found not guilty. He said that costume was for a delayed Halloween party, was designed to entertain people and that “The notion that I was impersonating a murderer or glorifying a murderer, I just don’t think it stacks up.”

In the 2009 schoolies video, McGain interviewed school leavers about whether the Australian flag should be changed and was seen laughing when one school leaver said: “I mean we’ve got to stop celebrating a culture that couldn’t even invent the bloody wheel for God’s sake. We’ve got to start enjoying and living in western culture.”
