timberland beanie I’ve no idea why my name is on Westminster sex claims list
Rory Stewart has spoken out after being named on an unverified list of sexual misconduct claims in Westminister, stating: “It’s complete nonsense.”
The Cumbrian MP said he had “no idea” how he had come to feature, with the former female member of staff also named saying he was “never anything other than completely professional”.
In a statement on Twitter, she said: “While I recognise the seriousness of the allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour, sexual harassment and worse, I wish to emphasise that nothing of the kind implied by my name being included on this spreadsheet ever took place.
“During my time working in Parliament,
Rory Stewart was never anything other than completely professional and an excellent employer.
Mr Stewart, speaking to CN Group, said: “It’s completely untrue, hurtful and damaging, particularly that we have absolutely no idea what this is or where it’s come from.
“And that is a great pity, not just in terms of the damage it’s doing but that it is absolutely undermining a serious issue that people need to take seriously.
