Her drug supplier son works at the Commons . . . mum is off to the Lords
DESPITE earning £130,000 between them, Kate Osamor and her drug dealer son Ishmael live in a social housing property in North London.
Such homes are intended for those on low incomes yet earlier this month it emerged that Osamor, paid £77,000 a year, voted against raising rent for high earners living in social housing.
In three votes in 2015 and 2016, she also blocked proposals that would have seen her pay market rent. The plans classed high earners as households where two adults earn £20,000 each or more.
Since being convicted of possessing drugs with intent to supply, her son has kept his taxpayerfunded Commons job as her communications officer. The prosecution accepted he was not selling drugs. Next week the MP’s mother, Martha, takes her place in the House of Lords as Baroness Osamor after being nominated by Jeremy Corbyn.
CONVICTED: Ishmael Osamor admitted drugs offences last month
