Another One Nation candidate in strife

Mr Dickson, who is married, reportedly calls one of the dancers a "bitch" before describing her as "hot" and can be heard saying Asian women don't know what they're doing during sex and "white women f*** a whole lot better".

Hanson said Steve Dickson offered his resignation after an Australian channel aired footage from an undercover investigation by the Al Jazeera network that showed him putting money into a dancer's lingerie while talking in disparagingly terms.

One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has broken down in an emotionally-charged television interview, following the resignation of one her right-hand men over an alcohol-fuelled strip club romp.

"I found the footage hard to watch as my words and actions under intoxication and in that environment, are not a true reflection of myself", it said.

Adding to the list, she hand-picked Fraser Anning who came to the Senate only to leave One Nation before taking his seat and is now spreading his ultra-right beliefs through his own vanity party.

Senator Hanson had previously stood by Mr Dickson and called him a "good man" and a "family man" after he was filmed meeting with USA gun lobbyists.

"I am also deeply remorseful for my disrespectful comments towards women".

One Nation has had it's fair share of scandals this year, from candidates being accused of trying to get donations from the American National Rifle Association to others saying some pretty misogynistic and homophobic things.

"I found the footage hard to watch as my words and actions under intoxication and in that environment, are not a true reflection of myself", he said.

However, doubts remain over his ability to lead Arsenal's rebuild back to the heights they once enjoyed under Wenger. And the defender hailed Ramsey's attitude since his move to Juventus was announced.

"Steve's language and behaviour was unacceptable and does not meet my expectations nor the greater public's expectation of a person who is standing for public office", she said.

The 56-year-old served as One Nation's chief in Queensland and as one of the top aides to party leader Pauline Hanson.

"Another day and another one of Pauline Hanson's candidates is caught out engaging in sordid, seedy, sexist and racist behaviour", he told the Cairns Post.

"Al Jazeera did not consider it in the public interest to broadcast the material", the broadcaster said.

Speaking about her "friend" Steve Dickson, she said he was "stitched up" and a "victim of entrapment".

"I will put my hand on my heart - I've drunk as a young man", he said.

She also admitted if she could turn back time, she would tell Mr Dickson not to travel to the US. "It's you, I'm just in the way".

"Allow the people of this country to be able to see exactly what was said".
