You've got to hand it to Glasgow City Council, it has everything. Fraudsters, drug takers and now a sex pest. Liz Cameron, a former lord provost of Glasgow, is to be interviewed by police after claiming a colleague at the centre of indecent assault allegations used inappropriate behaviour towards her. Labour councillor Gilbert Davidson (pictured) is already being investigated after being accused at the weekend of groping counterpart Ruth Black.
On Saturday Black, who was effectively sacked by Labour earlier this month over financial irregularities surrounding the council-funded gay and lesbian centre she runs, claimed that in July 2008 Davidson came up behind her in the City Chambers and groped her. She alleged he also made suggestive remarks such as, "You're gay because you've not had a real man". Black denied she had only raised the matter now as revenge against Labour following her suspension and claimed Purcell supported her complaint. That won't do Mr Purcell's new consultancy too many favours.
Now officers will also question ex-provost Liz Cameron after she said Davidson sent suggestive voice mails and text messages to her ahead of a trip away on council business, asking her to share a double hotel room with him. Ms Cameron has refused to comment either on the alleged incident or her impending police interview, with close colleagues claiming she was still too distressed to publicly discuss it.
Poor Dundee. It's sex in the city antics pale in significance.
