Brown said the first incident never happened, and in the second, he was the one who got kissed, not the other way around.

Some of Brown’s strongest critics were members of his own party who immediately said they believed the women and called his behaviour “disgusting.”

Somehow that that was expected. You can see where this is heading.

Goes to show you what type of investigation some of this media places actually perform>

Does this matter? The damage is already done and his political career is over.

I saw that @Mike15 updated this thread, but people don't always look. Also, I think, given the seriousness of what's happened, it deserves its own thread. Mods can overrule me, if they please.

He should have never resigned. Let that be a lesson for those holding high positions. Never resign. It's silly. If they fire you, contractually you are entitled to a relatively good severance package (stock, cash, etc.). But if you quit, not as much.

Whether he is guilty or innocent, at the time he was accused, behind the scenes I don't think his party gave him much of a choice.

If you're at the helm of an organization who loses confidence in you, then they have the ability to dismiss you. I would have stuck it out until they got rid of me. My principle has always been that you fight until the end; no surrender. But that's just me.

I hope he sues the lying woman and the pos CTV for everything he can...
It is so easy to destroy someone on a whim in today's progressive utopia..

I wonder if he could file a libel claim against the media who exposed this and the accusers. Seems to me to meet the criteria ie a lie that was exposed and led to damages.

If so what could throw the brakes on the me2 hysteria.

hopefully civil lawsuits incoming for ctv and those women if his legal team is working on proving the allegations to be false

maybe even criminal ones if you interpret it as false allegations with the purpose of harming and tampering with a democratic electoral process

Absolutely he could and should do that as there are definite damages.

I would imagine that employment contracts might now have clauses saying that the person can't be fired (without a payout) in a claim of sexual harassment or assault, unless these accusations are substantiated in court.

The problem is if he stayed on as leader, he would not have won. The circus distraction is too massive, especially now with the MeToo movement on the news daily, he would have gotten heat from all sides. Public opinion is messed up nowadays, people automatically think what they hear on the news is true and condemn them immediately. He was right to step down until he could get his name clear.
