‘Tatler Tory’ scandal: Senior aide ‘blackmailed’ whistleblower with sex tape
A senior election aide at the heart of a deepening sex scandal engulfing the Conservative Party has been accused of blackmailing an activist days before he was due to expose crucial evidence about him.
Police have been investigating claims that Tory aide Mark Clarke, who has been dubbed ‘the Tatler Tory,’ used revenge porn to threaten the 19-year-old Tory activist and demand he pay £2,500 (US$3,750).
