Tory MSP’s aide sacked after sex attack conviction. What does that say about the Conservatives?

This won’t play well for the Conservatives – perhaps unfairly.

The story suggests that a man facing trial for carrying out a sex attack thought that the Conservative Party would be glad to give him a job.

It casts the Tories’ recent attempts to de-toxify themselves into question, after the series of sex scandals that rocked the party last year.

But here’s the thing: We’re told the Tories acted immediately after they found out about the trial – suspending him until after the verdict was known, and dismissing him after he was found guilty.

Considering the fact that the man in question did not divulge details of his trial when he applied to work for the Tories, one wonders what more they could have done.

But the fact still remains: A sex attacker thought the Conservative Party would employ him. What does that say about the Tories?

The Scottish Conservatives’ justice spokesman has sacked an aide after he was convicted of carrying out a sex attack.

Greg Jamieson, of Dundee, was found guilty of touching a work colleague’s breasts whilst he was previously employed as a police officer.

Shadow justice secretary Liam Kerr sacked Jamieson following his conviction, after the 33-year old initially hid details about his upcoming trial from the party.
