Former staffer announces she will stand for selection against right-wing MP who wrongfully sacked her
Whistleblower Elaina Cohen has announced that she is standing for selection in the Birmingham seat of Perry Barr – against the right-wing MP who wrongfully sacked her after she blew the whistle on alleged criminal exploitation of vulnerable women by Mahmood’s staffer and alleged lover.
Cohen, who won her tribunal case against Mahmood earlier this year, was sacked despite Mahmood admitting she was very good at her job – and the MP did not contest any of the accusations made by one of the women on the witness stand about the way she and other domestic violence victims were ‘sadistically’ abused and exploited.
And she has announced on Facebook this morning her intention to stand, accusing Mahmood of ‘effectively condoning criminal abuse of vulnerable women’:
Ms Cohen, who has also accused Labour leader Keir Starmer and his sidekick David Evans of covering up her allegations, exclusively told Skwawkbox that local Labour figures are already backing her bid:
It appears that the only way to get justice for the victims of criminal abuse and for myself is to become an MP myself, so I will be standing in the Perry Barr selection. It’s early days yet and the selection timetable has not yet been announced but I have asked the party to notify me when the process opens and I already have the support of local politicians.
Khalid Mahmood was contacted for comment.
