Pervy Lord Rennard Cover Up Accusation

Bridget Harris, a former special adviser to Mr Clegg, said that in a hotel bar at a party conference, the peer repeatedly touched her legs without permission. “I had to physically move away from him,” she said. “He suggested that we take our coffees upstairs to his room.” Mrs Harris said she reported the incident to party managers, but nothing was done.Another, anonymous, Lib Dem woman, told the channel that the peer once “shoved his hand down the back of my dress”.

The LibDems have finally launched an investigation. They should take a look at any influence he had on the candidate selection process…
