False news in #Unley

I'm just staggered by how long it takes for the legal system and bureaucracy to act.

Back on 30 October 2018 I posted the following ...

There’s a nasty red coloured leaflet being circulated in Unley.
It contains blatant lies and is whipping up hysteria about an 11 storey development to be built ‘next door to you’. It’s very amateurish and has a ‘how to vote’ showing a preference for Michael Hewitson.
The gossip on the street is about who actually funded it.
To me, it’s clear who funded it.

Yesterday, whilst at the local pub, I was told that this matter was being investigated.
It seems that someone must have reported the concern of false information being circulated during the local government election in #Unley (14 months ago).
My source at the bar was unknown to me, but seemed to be quite knowledgeable about the matter.

If this is true, it is just staggering how long it has taken to launch an investigation.
To be fair, there might have been a bit of a backlog of complaints.
