PVV parliamentarian James Sharpe quits, Wilders respects decision

20 11 2010

From DutchNews.nl:

PVV member of parliament James Sharpe has resigned following allegations about his business dealings and private life.

‘I have nothing to hide. This is my decision alone. I cannot focus on my work any more,’ Sharpe said in a statement. Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam PVV, said he ‘respects’ Sharpe’s decision.

Sharpe, 48, has been an MP since the June election. He came under fire this week over reports that a company he ran in Hungary was fined for misleading customers by sending them text messages from women who did not exist.

He was also reportedly suspended by the Dutch athletics board in the late 1980s for hitting a fellow athlete with his spiked running shoes.
