Husband of Slain MP Jo Cox Steps Down after Misconduct Claim

Sunday, 18 February 2018 07:38 AM

LONDON (AP) — The widower of a slain British legislator has stepped down from two charities set up in her memory after allegations of sexual misconduct in the past were reported.

Brendan Cox said late Saturday night he had acted inappropriately and would leave his positions at the Jo Cox Foundation and the More in Common charity. Both were started after his wife Jo Cox was shot and stabbed to death during the Brexit referendum in 2016.

Brendan Cox said he wanted to apologize "deeply and unreservedly" for his past behavior. This came after the Mail on Sunday published reports alleging sexual misconduct on his part. He did say the newspaper's allegations were a "massive exaggeration."

Cox has advocated for his wife's beliefs. She was killed by a far-right activist.
