Bridget Harris, the former Clegg special advisor, has spoken about the allegations she made against Lord Rennard.
Lord Rennard denies all the allegations of sexual misconduct made against him by four women, and the police last week decided not to proceed with a prosecution. However, writing for The Telegraph’s Wonder Women section today, Harris says:
Just because he was good at getting MPs elected, are we really saying that women’s security and integrity was a fair price to pay in return?
The police needed a high burden of proof to pursue a court case – the Liberal Democrat Party has only the burden of its own conscience to deal with.
