FORMER Indigo Shire mayor Jenny O'Connor could be in breach of a councillor code of conduct which was only updated when she occupied the top job two years ago.
Cr O'Connor used her Twitter account on Saturday night to unleash on former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and One Nation candidate Mark Latham, who has secured a seat in the NSW parliament Upper House.
Cr O'Connor told Mr Turnbull to "F..k Off", accusing him of selling out Australians on climate change and refugees in order to pander to Rupert Murdoch's media empire.
Mr Turnbull was congratulating Gladys Berijiklian on leading the Coalition to an historic NSW election victory on his own Twitter account.
Also, in response to an ABC News report declaring Mr Lathan had won an Upper House seat, Cr O'Connor tweeted: "Just. F..k, This".
The tweets have subsequently been deleted from Cr O'Connor's account.
Cr O'Connor couldn't be contacted for comment.
Indigo mayor Bernard Gaffney said he had been made aware of Cr O'Connor's social media activity on election night.
"Once I've had a look at the code of conduct I will be discussing it with my fellow councillors," Cr Gaffney said.
"Whether it is or isn't a breach will be something I will discuss with them."
The Indigo Shire code of conduct was most recently signed in February 2017 by Cr O'Connor and other councillors.
It states in part in the section pertaining to mayor and councillors: "(A councillor must) treat all persons with respect and have due regard to the opinions, beliefs, rights and responsibilities of other councillors, council staff and other persons".
The code of conduct has no specific mention of social media activity.
Cr O'Connor was a candidate in the recent Victorian election when she stood as an independent and finished third in the primary vote count behind eventual winner Bill Tilley and fellow independent Jacqui Hawkins.
Mr Tilley held onto the seat with the final result decided on preferences.
Cr O'Connor has previously contested and state and federal elections in Benambra and Indi for the Greens.
She had hoped to hold onto the Indigo mayor position and then officially nominate as candidate for the Benambra election the next day.
Cr O'Connor didn't contest the mayoral election with Cr Gaffney returned for another stint.
"He accused me of cheating, I wasn't cheating," she told The Border Mail in February.
