Cle­ment ad­mits to mul­ti­ple acts of in­fi­delity, re­ported to po­lice last sum­mer

StarMetro Halifax - - CANADA & WORLD -

OT­TAWA—FOR­MER Con­ser­va­tive MP Tony Cle­ment says he has en­gaged in more than one in­ap­pro­pri­ate on­line ex­change.

In a let­ter to con­stituents posted on his web­site, Cle­ment says the ex­changes led to mul­ti­ple acts of in­fi­delity.

Cle­ment says one ex­change led to a woman be­ing of­fered money through an anony­mous so­cial me­dia ac­count in ex­change for in­ti­mate and per­sonal in­for­ma­tion.

Cle­ment says he con­tacted On­tario po­lice to re­port that ex­change last sum­mer.

On Tues­day, Cle­ment re­signed from his com­mit­tee du­ties af­ter ad­mit­ting to send­ing sex­u­ally ex­plicit images and a video to some­one he thought was a con­sent­ing woman who he says tried to ex­tort him.

On Wed­nes­day, Con­ser­va­tive Leader An­drew Scheer ex­pelled the for­mer cab­i­net min­is­ter from the Tory cau­cus.

Cle­ment writes that while his on­line ex­changes were con­sen­sual and mu­tual, they were ab­so­lutely wrong and should never have oc­curred. Con­ser­va­tive MP Tony Cle­ment posted a let­ter to his con­stituents on his web­site ad­mit­ting to many in­ap­pro­pri­ate on­line ex­changes that led to in­fi­deli­ties. MON­TREAL—PO­LICE near Mon­treal are warn­ing teens and their par­ents about the dan­ger of shar­ing ex­plicit images on­line as they probe an on­line sex­ual ex­tor­tion case re­lated to the pop­u­lar game Fort­nite. The Riche­lieu-saint­lau­rent po­lice force re­ports four re­cent cases with the same char­ac­ter­is­tics: young males were tar­geted with the per­pe­tra­tor of­fer­ing codes to ac­cess a higher level.
