Former Ford staffer Anderew Kimber issues apology for ‘unacceptable conduct’

“I take full responsibility for my behaviour.”

These words were just part of a statement issued late Thursday afternoon by former Doug Ford staffer Andrew Kimber, apologizing for the ‘unacceptable conduct’ that prompted him to suddenly resign from his post earlier this week.

On Monday, Kimber stepped aside after allegations came to light concerning inappropriate text messages and other content to fellow Ontario PC staffers and party members.

“I unreservedly apologize for the pain I have caused others by my recent actions,” the screen-captured statement posted to Kimber’s Twitter account reads.

“Everyone has the right to live and work free from harassment, and I’m sorry for those who I have hurt.”

He also apologized to his friends and colleagues in the Ford government, and the “disserve I brought to the office.”

Kimber served as the Premier’s executive director of issues management and legislative affairs

His resignation came as part of a rough day for the Premier’s office, already dealing with the departure of former economic development, job creation and trade minister Jim Wilson — who stepped down the previous week to “seek treatment for addiction issues.”

Conduct allegations of his own soon surfaced, centering around complaints made by a male political staffer who accused him of inappropriate comments and sexual passes.
