Brown calls allegations 'absolute lies'

  Brown calls allegations 'absolute lies' Former Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown says he's contemplating legal action to restore his reputation in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, which he calls "absolute lies."

That certainly sounds like someone who is lawyering up for a lawsuit or two.

Considering he lost his job and future opportunity as premier of the province due to allegations that are anonymous, with no charges or complaints filed, it doesn't take a law student to figure out he may have a case.

Take, for example, TVO host Steve Paikin who has also been accused of alleged sexual misconduct.

His employer is investigating and Paikin is still on the job while he defends himself against an identified complainant.

By contrast, Brown's employer (the PC party) abandon him becoming judge and jury without an identified complainant or charge, forcing his exit.

Former Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown blasts accusers in new Facebook post

  Former Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown blasts accusers in new Facebook post Former Ontario Progressive Conservative Patrick Brown says on Facebook that sexual misconduct allegations against him contain details that he has found to be false and he will fight to clear his name."No words can describe the hurt and pain suffered by me and my family," he writes in the Facebook post, published on Sunday morning.

If these allegations are proven to be false and the court of public opinion sways back to Patrick Brown, he may not be premier, but he could be owed a lot of money.

If it was a private company, the PC party could owe Brown for wrongful dismissal and CTV for ruining his future career as Ontario premier without sufficient evidence.

How much do you think it is worth for both CTV and the PC party to keep this all quiet in hopes no one questions their lack of credibility and it all conveniently goes away?

In other words, Brown may not be leader of the province but also, he may never have to work again.

However, make no mistake, if more accusations surface this is all for not.
