State Sen. Kevin Parker breaks silence on rape lawsuit filed against him
State Sen. Kevin Parker, of Brooklyn, broke his silence on the rape lawsuit filed against him earlier this week.
Sen. Parker said in a statement, "I voted in favor of the ASA to ensure all New Yorkers can seek justice and be heard. While I cannot comment on the specifics of this litigation, I am completely confident in assuring my constituents, colleagues, and supporters these allegations are absolutely untrue. My work and advocacy will continue."
That claim is being brought by Olga Jean-Baptiste, officials say. Jean-Baptiste says Parker raped her in her apartment while they were working together to bring help to Haiti after serious flooding in 2004.
