A former Queensland Labor MP is being sued for defamation after allegedly claiming on Facebook that a candidate for Moreton Bay mayor was a Nazi sympathiser.

Retiree and candidate for mayoral candidate Eric Shields filed the defamation claim in the Federal Court in January, alleging former Pumicestone MP Rick Williams had defamed him by claiming Mr Shields agreed with Hitler’s policies and was a Nazi sympathiser.
