Charlie Elphicke was the Conservative Party's Member of Parliament for Dover. Now he's likely headed to jail, convicted of sexually assaulting two women. Though the cases occurred years apart, both victims reported uncannily similar assaults.
He forced his victim on to a sofa and groped her breast while trying to kiss her, before chasing her and chanting "I'm a naughty Tory".
Elphicke will be sentenced in September; the judge already told him he's likely to receive a custodial sentence.
Enjoy this lesson in instrumentality and choice, courtesy of Natalie Elphicke, Dover's new MP and Charlie's wife of 25 years:
Today's verdict is one that brings profound sorrow. It ends my 25 year marriage to the only man I have ever loved.
I would ask for some personal space and time to come to terms with the shocking events of the last 3 years.
I will not be commenting further.
