Paula Bennett says alleged victims of inappropriate behaviour from a Labour Party worker are coming to her for help.

The staffer accused of serious misconduct is still working at Parliament and an internal investigation which exonerated him is being reviewed.

National's deputy leader says people are coming to her for help, after not being listened to by others.

Bennett told Mike Hosking that events worsened after the stories came out in the media. 

“The woman has taken the extraordinary step of contacting me because they are not being listened to. They are having panic attacks and are anxious.”
