Former top-aide to Premier Ford issues statement, admits to harassing behaviour

A former top-aide to Premier Doug Ford is apologizing for his actions, almost one-week since his sudden departure from Queen's Park.

Andrew Kimber says in a statement that his actions were "unacceptable." He goes on to say that everyone has the right to live and work free from harassment.

"I take full responsibility for my behaviour. I resigned my position to deal with these issues and will seek the help I need going forward," his statement reads.

The Toronto Star reports that Kimber allegedly sent late-night texts to five women and some of them included photos of him in his underwear.

The Star also reports that the texts allegedly began during the Ontario election campaign and continued until recently.
