Former Ontario Tory leader Patrick Brown says he's suing CTV News

Former Ontario Tory leader Patrick Brown says he's suing CTV News

On Jan. 24, CTV News reported that two women said when Brown was a Conservative MP and they were teenagers, he made unwanted sexual advances toward them.

The man says he only found out on Tuesday the woman was identifying him as the person who drove her to Brown's when CTV called him to fact-check her story. "I am exclusively focused on clearing my name, not technicalities".

She now says that she was of legal drinking age and out of high school. He is now vice-president of the Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte provincial PC riding association, where Brown remains the party's candidate for June's election. Both had said they were intoxicated, after having been out partying at a bar with Brown.

"The comments made about me on social media were demeaning, victim-blaming and misogynistic".

She alleged Brown tried to force her to perform oral sex on him at his home in Barrie more than 10 years ago, after meeting him in a bar.

CTV reported the alleged incident with the first accuser happened in Brown's bedroom with the door closed, but Brown said in his Facebook post that at the time of the alleged incident, he lived in an open concept apartment and the bedroom didn't have a door.

The sources further claim that the Party leadership race is invalid and that someone in the PC party crafted the resignation letter without Brown's authorization. "And here is my message to my accusers - both of them".

That friend told CTV News he has no recollection of the night.

"So I kind of came to, frantic, like 'you need to let me out, I'm leaving, '" the first accuser said.

But after two weeks of near-silence, Brown is back, conducting a multi-pronged campaign to clear his name of charges he calls "malicious and false", as one element of those accusations crumbled Wednesday.

Political observers say the stakes are highest for Mulroney, a rookie politician and relative unknown who must prove she can discuss policy and hold her own against more experienced and forceful rivals.

"Patrick has hired someone to do the forensics, a P.I., he's got a very strong legal team", Mills said in an interview on an Ottawa radio station. "I'm going to look under every stone to find out who set this up". CTV News continues to ask Patrick Brown if he thinks the two women accusing him of sexual misconduct are lying. "I want to know who's behind this, because this is just horrific".

The Liberals poured scorn on the suggestion, calling the suggestion "ridiculous" and not worthy of a response.

There's a "likelihood" Patrick Brown will run for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leadership, according to a family friend and the past president of the party's Simcoe North riding association.

Meanwhile, for the Progressive Conservatives, Brown's resignation touched off a leadership contest now featuring four contenders. Doug Ford, ex-MPP Christine Elliott and parent activist Tanya Granic Allen.
