In 2018, this man was found guilty of inappropriate behaviour toward four women in a context of his greater power. His several offences included putting his hand down the back of a woman’s top. In the above report:
The Standards Commission for Scotland ruled that Cllr Moore made “unwarranted and inappropriate physical contact” with Cllrs Bell and Speed, along with two council officers.
Moore was suspended from any role in the administration but not sacked as a councillor or as a Lib Dem member. He quit the party in March and has now joined an all-male Conservative/Independent coalition to keep the SNP out of office.
Neither Willie Rennie nor Douglas Ross has commented, as far as I can see, but they had plenty to say about another man who has admitted inappropriate behaviour toward women:
Rennie, perhaps predictably given the Lib Dems history of ignoring paedophilia in their ranks, focused on the threat to their representation:
Scottish Labour are not averse to a dodgy coalition either:
I wrote in January this year:
Scottish Labour leadership hopefuls Monica Lennon and Anas Sarwar have been challenged by the SNP to uphold the suspension of nine disgraced councillors. After a shocking 40 months of inaction by the Labour leadership, the nine councillors were formally suspended from the party in October 2020 for propping up the Tories in a power-sharing deal on Aberdeen Council. The group caused outrage by claiming “the Tories have done more to improve the lives of people in disadvantaged communities in Aberdeen than the SNP have ever done”.
Monica Lennon, that reminds me:
From the above report:
A Labour MSP has said she was sexually assaulted by a senior male colleague at a party. Monica Lennon told the Sunday Mail that she was groped at a social event in 2013 in front of several witnesses. She said she made an initial complaint to Scottish Labour but decided not to progress it because she felt she would not be believed.
