Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu claims Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman is being bullied
Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu responds to online criticism of her Green Party colleague Roderic O’Gorman and his ties to British human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell.
Ms Chu urged her followers to report ‘trolls’ who are posting ‘creatively-edited’ lies about Mr O’Gorman, the newly-apppointed Minister for Children, Disability, Equality and Integration.
Mr Tatchell had stated in a 1997 letter that friends as young as nine had sexual experiences with adults which gave them “great joy”.
This week, a tweet (top) from 2018 showing Mr O’Gorman with Mr Tatchell, who was guest of the Green Party at the Dublin Pride Parade, resurfaced.
Newly elected Green Party Dublin City Councillor Hazel Chu tweetz:
Me – Hey mum, I got my card today. I’ll start officially tomorrow.
Mum – That card doesn’t say Taoiseach. You should work harder next time.
