Stephen Sharers video, in which he was seen beating his wife, has gone viral.
It has also been seen by millions of Facebook users, who have also called for his resignation.
Sharer, 57, who has been on trial for raping a woman and beating her with a metal pipe, has denied any wrongdoing and has said he wants to “reclaim my life”.
“My life has been a complete disaster for a number of years,” he told the BBC in an interview in August.
“I have been through a lot and I’m just so ashamed of it, because I’ve been through the worst and I don’t deserve to live.”
His lawyer has called his behaviour “bullyy”.
Sharer’s lawyer said his client would plead not guilty to all charges in court.
“He’s going to plead not only not guilty, but also guilty to the most serious charges,” John Smith told the ABC.
Sharers family has denied that he was violent.
“This is a very personal matter for Stephen,” his brother said.
“His life has suffered hugely, but he has to move on with his life.”
Sharers son, who was born a boy but is now female, said his father had become “unstable”.
“I think he’s going through a period,” he said.
Sharens brother, Robert Sharers, said Stephen’s violent behaviour “made him look like a bully”.
“He should not have been in that position,” Robert Sharer said.
The Australian Federal Police are investigating the case.
Sharerb’s lawyer says Sharers “will plead not guilt to all the charges”.
“His criminal history does not give him any legal standing to plead to any of the charges, he has been given no opportunity to have a fair trial,” John Haggerty told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“We think the charges are likely to be brought at trial, and he will be found guilty of the most grave offences.”
The Australian Women’s Lobby has called for Sharers resignation.
“Stephen Sharer has a record of criminal conduct and it has now been made public, which means he must go,” the organisation said in a statement.
The organisation called for a criminal investigation into Sharers conduct, saying it was “completely unacceptable” and “unacceptable”. “
The Australian Women, the Australian Council of Social Service and the Australian Human Rights Commission have all called for Mr Sharer to be investigated for the abuse he has caused his wife.”
The organisation called for a criminal investigation into Sharers conduct, saying it was “completely unacceptable” and “unacceptable”.
Sharers lawyers have said that Sharers own health problems make it impossible for him to face a criminal prosecution.
The court heard Sharers is currently on disability benefits and cannot work due to his mental health problems.
Sharerm has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
