(2008) New Labour M.P. Ivan Lewis -HARASSMENT

A TOP government minister bombarded a pretty civil servant with personal text messages, driving her out of her job.

The News of the World can reveal Health Minister Ivan Lewis PURSUED 25-year-old Susie Mason after misinterpreting her friendly banter.

He is understood to have sent a string of texts and, as the messages became more intimate, Susie was forced to make a tearful complaint to her bosses.

She asked to be moved to another job and was transferred to a new post within the Department.

Susie confirmed: “He wasn’t the nicest man to work for.”

And last night the Department of Health issued a statement saying the minister “apologises unreservedly” for his behaviour.

The incident happened in 2007, a year after Lewis, 41, walked out on his wife Juliette for a councillor, 50- year-old Margaret Gibb.

The father-of-two’s behaviour after 16 years of marriage worried Susie, described by colleagues as “a real high flier”. She worked in Lewis’s private office as an assistant private secretary and the pair are understood to have hit it off at a drinks party.
