A Green Party politician has withdrawn from the deputy leadership race after it emerged her father was her election agent despite being charged with child rape. Aimee Challenor’s father David was jailed for 22 years last week for torturing and raping a ten-year-old girl. The 20-year-old was tipped for great success in the party, but pulled out of the race on Sunday.
Aimee, who is transgender, was the party’s equality spokesman and a former parliamentary candidate.
As well as rape, Challenor, 50, was found guilty of of false imprisonment, gross indecency, assault by penetration, assault causing actual bodily harm, making indecent images or children by downloading them and possessing prohibited images. The former Green Party member used to dress in a nappy and an adult-sized baby costume when he raped his victim.
Aimee and her father lived together in a house in Coventry and he was her election agent even after his trial date had been sent.
So the trans equality spokesman essentially hired David Challenor as the trans’ election agent even after the trans knew about the accusations and trial. Is this queer theory in action?
