Federal MP Tony Clement sends sexually explicit images of himself, resigns from caucus assignments

Federal Conservative MP Tony Clement has resigned from the Conservative shadow cabinet after he shared explicit sexual images and a video of himself electronically.

In a statement, Clement says the images were sent in the last three weeks and he believed they were going to a ``consenting female." 

He now believes he's the victim of a financial extortion attempt and the RCMP are investigating. 

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says in a statement he is greatly disappointed with Clement's actions but is encouraged that he has decided to seek help.

Clement has been serving the riding of Parry Sound-Muskoka since 2006.

He is married with three children.
