Liberal MP for Calgary-Skyview Darshan Kang has resigned from caucus after a second woman has come forward with allegations of sexual harassment.
The latest woman, who worked with him when he was an Alberta MLA in 2011 and 2012, alleges that he groped and kissed her against her will.
The first allegations arose earlier this month after a 24 year old woman who works in his constituency office made similar claims and according to her father, Kang offered her $100K for her silence.
Kang fully denies the claims and says he’s resigning in order to focus on clearing his name but this isn’t the first time the MP has gotten himself wrapped up in controversy.
Almost two years ago, I reported that he was caught campaigning at an advance polling station before the election and even worse, he spoke at a pro-Hamas rally in Calgary that erupted in violence.
But, I thought the Liberals were the party of women? When our self-proclaimed feminist Prime Minister was asked why he hadn’t removed Kang from caucus prior to his voluntary resignation, he talked about the whip’s office handling it and took zero initiative to call any of this out.
Liberals love to vocally proclaim they’re the party of women, but constantly fall silent when it comes to real sexism and harassment, especially when it concerns one of their own.
Earlier this week I told you how they went crazy over what they claimed was a “sexist” meme Jason Kenney sent out, but I’m still waiting for the outrage over these allegations involving Kang.
The MP hasn’t resigned as an MP, only as a Liberal. So how long before the ultra-feminist Liberal caucus accepts him back under their wing when all of this blows over?
