(Scroll down for video) An elected official in the United Kingdom, was forced to resign after a video emerged, which showed him using cocaine with prostitutes.
John Sewell, who was the Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords, has resigned after the photos and videos that show him snorting cocaine with prostitutes went viral.
However, he will keep his membership in the House of Lords. The leaked photos and videos appear to show Sewell naked and snorting cocaine.
At one point in the video, a prostitute told Sewell : “You’re a party animal!” One of the responsibilities of Sewell as Deputy Speaker was to review the standards and ethics in the House of Lords.
House of Lords Speaker Baroness Frances D’Souza said that Sewell’s behavior is unacceptable. D’Souza is also calling on the police to investigate the incident.
