Glasgow MP Patrick Grady has resigned as SNP chief whip after being named as one of two sexual offenders of a historical sex harassment case.
A complaint was published in Monday’s Daily Record on Wednesday where a man claimed a male MP, suggested to be Grady, inappropriately touched him when he was 19 in 2016.
A female MP is also reported as the other offender in two separate incidents in London but no further elaboration on the accused.
Reportedly, separate complaints were made to the party compliance unit in 2017 and 2018, but staff “are scared to come forward because he is protected by the party.”
An SNP spokesman confirmed the report but refused to comment on Grady: “The SNP has today received a formal complaint. That allows due process to take place and we will not be commenting any further while an investigation is underway.”
