Sex chat room belfast
He denied being on the chatroom, saying it was “used by teenagers”, and insisted special advisers do not have much influence on ministers.
Dr Crowe reported the allegations to DEL and last night the department issued a statement confirming he “has been suspended from duty with immediate effect as a precautionary step to enable a full investigation to take place”.
Dr Crowe also claimed to have leaked party and Executive information to a journalist in the hope of receiving sexual favours in return.
In 2004 he was appointed a policy officer with the party and became head of policy for the UUP within a year.
He was policy adviser to Jim Nicholson’s successful European election campaign.
The married father-of-two from Ballinderry was a former full-time Church of Ireland minister and continues to preach in a non-stipendiary role at Christ Church parish in Lisburn and at St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast.
The Belfast Telegraph met Dr Crowe yesterday with a dossier of evidence and asked him for a response.
He then moved on to reveal that he had been doing political favours for lobbyists for sexual favours.” Dr Crowe first made contact with the lobbyist on the chatroom last August when he candidly revealed he was Danny Kennedy’s special adviser.
