MELBOURNE, March 16 (UPI) -- Australian politician Pauline Hanson says she is not the woman in nude photographs that were recently published in newspapers.
But the man who took the photos says be believes they depict Hanson, who is running for a seat in the Queensland parliament, the Melbourne Herald-Sun reported Monday.
The newspaper said Hanson's family also denies the photographs are of the right-wing politician.
"My sisters have come out, my family has come out. It is not me. That's all I can say," she said. "The fact is, in 1975, I was married, living on the Gold Coast and I had my second child, Steven, on February 25, 1975."
The man who took the pictures, former Army commando Jack Johnson, said he was sure the woman he dated in the mid-1970s was Pauline Hanson, but he couldn't remember her last name.
"I believe it's you. If it's not, I am dead set sorry. But I still believe, in myself, it's you. But I can't prove that," he said. "I took them myself, they're real. In my heart of hearts, I believe it's Pauline Hanson."
He said he clearly remembered the name tag of the woman he met working in a Brisbane grocery store, noting that they had dated for about three weeks.
Hanson said she had never worked in a grocery store and didn't know anyone by the name of Jack Johnson.
