Stefan Nilsson, MP of the Green Party, is now accused of sexual harassment against young women in the left-wing party - and for sticking his tongue into the mouth of a baby, DN writes.
Women have been alerted about the man's behavior for ten years, but nothing has happened. It has been about systematic harassment and sexual approaches, according to DN, who said to have talked to about 20 party members who confirm the image.
In addition, Nilsson is accused of having french kissing a baby, something that have been known in the party since 2014.
It is a female party member who claims that the MP politician in connection with a lunch picked up her five month old daughter and put his tongue into her mouth.
"When we were about to leave, he asked if he could hold my daughter. He stood right next to my left side and I saw how he immediately turned her upside down, lifting her up in the air and sticking his tongue into her mouth, the woman says to DN.
The woman then grabbed her daughter, left the place and cried all the way home.
The alleged incident was reported to the police in 2015 but the report was dismissed as it was "too long ago," writes DN. The woman also told about it within the party.
"Several people in the party say to DN that they assess both the woman and her story as credible," Dagens Nyheter points out.
Stefan Nilsson denies the allegations and argues that it is about rumors. He says he has reported the woman for gross misconduct. As part of the #Metoo campaign, she has published a picture of the parliamentary member on social media while telling about the experience. Nilsson has offered to meet the woman to discuss via a representative, something she declined as she sees it as an attempt to silence her.
- What is described with the child has never happened. We ate lunch at a restaurant with a lot of people in the room. One and a half years later, she told the party, Stefan Nilsson writes to DN.
The Green Party secretary Amanda Lind announced yesterday that an investigation has been initiated and Nilsson has also been told to leave the party.
On Tuesday he told DN that he will leave the Green Party but will remain in the parliament as a "politically independent."

Unlike previous years, there will be no Christmas lights in many Swedish towns this Christmas. Formally the drastic change is due to "security reasons".
