Speaker accused of sexual harassment at CTO bash

Speaker McKeeva Bush

(CNS): Speaker McKeeva Bush was reportedly escorted off the premises of the Ritz-Carlton hotel on Tuesday evening, by a colleague, after he was accused of sexually harassing two female government employees at a cocktail party hosted by the tourism ministry for the Caribbean Tourism Organization event. While there has been no confirmation from officials that Bush was the culprit, both the police and the premier’s office said they were aware of the allegations about the behaviour of a senior member of Parliament towards women present at the event.

CNS learned early this morning that it was the speaker and member for West Bay West who allegedly behaved inappropriately towards two women employed by different government departments during the course of the evening and had reportedly been asked to leave as a result.

Police have confirmed that they were aware of the accusations. “No formal complaint has yet been made to the RCIPS by either of the women concerned,” the police stated. “The RCIPS has commenced an investigation and will interview both women to ascertain whether a complaint/complaints are to be made.”

CNS reached out to Tourism Minister Kenneth Bryan and Premier Wayne Panton for comment. Bryan, who is hosting the CTO event, has not yet responded but the premier has acknowledged the allegations.

“Although I was not in attendance at the tourism event on Tuesday evening, I have received reports through social media and otherwise alleging an incident with a Member of Parliament,” Panton stated in an emailed message. “I have been informed that the RCIPS commenced an investigation on the matter and have issued a statement. In the current circumstances it is not prudent for me to make further comment at this time.”

When Panton formed the government with Bush in April 2021, he had agreed to a number of conditions, including the immediate implementation of a Code of Conduct for all Parliamentarians, where any infractions would lead to immediate dismissal from their position. Bush also agreed to donate 10% of his monthly salary to the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre and to continue supporting women’s issues.

The conditions were set because of Bush’s conviction for assault in December 2020 in relation to a well-documented incident at a bar in Seven Mile Beach earlier that year. Bush, who was intoxicated at the time and had passed out on the premises., assaulted the female manager when she tried to assist him.

However, there is no indication that Bush has met any of the conditions. There is no evidence that he made any donations to the Crisis Centre or any other relevant charity. And almost 18 months after the election, there is not sign that the code of conduct for MPs will be on the statute books anytime soon. While the premier steered through the first-ever Ministerial Code of Conduct for Cabinet members in July last year, Bush is not a member of Cabinet.

    When there is no accountability for behavior like this, and is done repeatedly thru the years, he just figures he is above what ever laws are in place. Sound familiar folks??

    As part of the 21 Dec 2020 court ruling, https://cnslibrary.com/wp-content/uploads/William-McKeeva-Bush-Sentence-Ruling-21-Dec-2020.pdf

    – Para 9 – the defendants personal mitigation “The Defendant advises that he has ceased alcohol consumption”
    Note – this reduced his sentence, so should his sentence be re-visited?

    – para 24 – he was on a curfew – to be home by 6pm – did he break the court order?

    – para 24 – He is able to leave the house on curfew and not confined to house arrest as long as he does not have any “new offences”

      So it appears he has allegedly committed another offense within 2 years of the December 2020 judgement, so it’s off to Northward we go. Right?

      Interesting that Mr. Moran, who prosecuted, was forced out of his important office.

      Who the hell are the 19 people who wrote to the court attesting to Mac’s unblemished and exemplary conduct?

    /pervert/
    a person whose sexual behavior is regarded as abnormal and unacceptable.

    Narcissism
    Personality qualities include thinking very highly of oneself, needing admiration, believing others are inferior, and lacking empathy for others.

    Here are ten signs of a narcissistic sociopath:

    1. They Live In a Deluded Reality
    Narcissistic sociopaths don’t see the world in the same way other people do. In their distorted version of reality, they are entitled to whatever they want, regardless of what it takes to get it or who is hurt in the process.4 They will justify their actions, even ones that are inexcusable, and show no remorse.

    Their narcissism may also lead them to develop delusions of grandeur about being important, special, or exceptional in some way, or paranoid delusions that others are out to get them.1,2

    2. They Are Obsessed With Power & Control
    People with NPD and ADP are often power hungry, and put a lot of time and effort into acquiring positions that give them power or control over other people, bowling over anyone who gets in their way. Once they obtain power, they may demand to be addressed in a certain way or make others follow rules that don’t make sense.

    Their obsession with power and control also tends to show up as a refusal to acknowledge any other authority, including rules, laws, policies, or requests made of them by others.4

    3. They Take Advantage of & Use Other People
    Narcissistic sociopaths have a habit of using, exploiting, and taking advantage of others. This tendency shows up in all of their relationships, including romantic relationships and any friendships or family relationships they’ve been able to maintain. They seek out codependent, nurturing types who are more easily manipulated and controlled through guilt, shame, or fear, and will hold onto these relationships only as long as the person is “useful.”4

    4. They Have No Moral Boundaries
    There are no lines a narcissistic sociopath won’t cross to get what they want. Their moral compass is non-existent, leaving them without the sense of “right and wrong” that most people have. After doing something harmful, illegal, or sadistic, they won’t feel remorse, regret, or guilt. In fact, they may even feel a sense of satisfaction knowing they were able to deceive, emotionally manipulate, or hurt someone.1,3,4

    5. They Have a Limited Range of Emotions
    Malignant narcissists don’t experience feelings of love and affection, or more vulnerable emotions like guilt, shame, or sadness. The only strong emotion they seem to be able to access is anger, which will show up as outrage when they’re slighted, offended, or not granted something they feel they deserve.4

    Their stunted emotional range also keeps them from being able to have empathy for other people, and may also lead them to destructive behaviors that allow them to feel something.1,3

    6. They Have a Huge Discard Pile
    Narcissistic sociopaths are known to discard people and things that are no longer useful to them. Over time, their discard pile stacks up and may include former friends, lovers, colleagues, and mentors who they betrayed, abandoned, or abused. Their discard pile may also include expensive material things they got bored or tired of, as well as roles or activities that served a purpose at one time, but are no longer useful to them.4

    7. They Become Hostile When Threatened
    Narcissistic sociopaths are most dangerous when they feel threatened, which may be more often than most people. Because of their natural tendency to be paranoid, less trusting, and more easily offended, threats can be a routine occurrence for them. When they feel threatened, the narcopath will often become hostile and aggressive, lashing out and becoming abusive towards others.1,2,4

    8. They Feed Off of Negative Energy
    The narcissistic sociopath is a person who feeds off of negative emotions and energy. There is something about drama, other’s fear or pain, or the chaos of disaster that seems to excite them or give them energy. This kind of parasitic attraction to negativity is a telltale sign of a sick person, including a person who may have traits of NPD and APD.

    This behavior is also what makes a sociopathic narcissist sadistic and dangerous, causing them to enjoy the pain and suffering of others.1

    9. They Get Bored Easily
    A narcissistic sociopath is constantly seeking sensations and cheap thrills because nothing can hold their interest and attention for long. They become easily bored with people, things, and activities, and will abandon them once they are no longer entertained.

    Their boredom can also turn into a restlessness that causes them to find destructive outlets, which is why people with these traits tend to be impulsive, aggressive, and engaged in crime, violence, or drug use.1,4

    10. They Are Empty Inside
    A narcissistic sociopath may have worked hard to craft a powerful, important-looking exterior, but this is a front. Lacking the ability to feel a full range of emotions makes them hollow and empty on the inside, keeping them from really experiencing things, expressing themselves, or connecting and relating with others.3

    This internal emptiness is what they’re trying to hide from others with their narcissism, and also what they’re trying to escape within themselves by using drugs or maintaining a level of entertainment, power, or destruction.

    When we look at the UK and we see some of the scandals surrounding sitting MPS and ministers and even prime ministers who have had to resign for much simpler scandals. Shouldn’t we wonder why the UK didn’t intervene or the governors have an intervene in the conduct of this man over the years? When the UK will try to dictate and control many of the aspects of what’s happening in the Cayman Islands or in other jurisdictions yet they have not tried to intervene in the conduct of this man over the years. He repeatedly belittles women. It is if he feels it as subservient to him. He has female women in his life in the closest forms any man can have. What is it about his head that does not make that connection that what he does is wrong?! He is sick.

      Over my dead body.I was not educated,raised to work hard and earnestly to inherit a nation of ashes upon which to lay the heads of my unborn children. ruin lies that way folks. if that is their stated agenda, let’s trigger an election and get them out now before they do anymore damage.They were not elected with that mandate.

      The relationship with the UK can be stressful and down right painful at times but there is still mutuality there and respect – and whether either side will admit it, a quantifiable benefit to both.

      I am all for strengthening trading relationships within the Carribbean region but I am a student of history. If you want to know the damage run away capitalism can cause, look no farther than Jamaica. If you want to see the damage a loss of political stability can cause look no farther than the overnight destruction of the Bahamas financial services industry. If you want to see the damage going independent half cocked can cause consider consider any of them. perhaps another master appeals more? the us perhaps? look no further than the sad mess in Puerto Rico and the USVI.

      I have not heard a single tenable argument for independence yet. please folks, remember Brexit – remember the way politicians twisted the minds of decent intelligent British people and used emotion and a hatred of feeling out of control at an uncertain moment in history to get them to support am action that is even now causing economic damage that will scar generations to come.it all sounded so compelling at the time,more for the NHS,more control over immigration, total freedom to legislate. None of that has manifested. I don’t care what they tell you, don’t let them use your emotions around difficult points destroy our home and our future. Think for yourselves.Theh promise you fish and you’ll come home with an empty gut and a wet backside.

    • Saw The Govt. Formation As A Mirage says:

      This is what happens when there is no patriotic party politics. The Hon. Premier took faith and invested his own finances in MPs Bryan and Saunders. When there are ‘independents’ that means they have independent thinking and ways of doing things. They do not conform with party way of operation. At least in a party you know the members are expected to rally collectively. If the Premier had foresight he likely would have formed another government. Kenny let him down because he performs as if he is head of government. Jay let him down because they are on different sides of the fence. McGeeva let him down twice by showing he XXXX needs mental health help and they have all let to an the people of our islands. Adding what a bewildered mindset the world must have looking from the outside.

    This man needs to be publicly castigated and banned from ever holding office again. This has gone quite far enough. I am unable to support any Government that will associate itself with this man going forward. Mr Panton needs to rid himself and his Government of this man before any further damage is done to his reputation and the quickly vanishing credibility of his Government.

    Rather than keeping playing all these political games, it would be nice to see Government and Opposition take a stand against Mac’s behavior.

          Lol clearly a disgruntled expat. Stay in point. We could go on and on about any government. Thw above only really benefits non-caymanians. This issue is about the people who are actually able to vote in this country. Most PPM (other than Juliana and Jon Jon who are independent) voted in favour of same sex unions. Get your facts straight and come back when you can vote.

            He won’t be able to come back when he is able to vote because they are no longer processing status applications. And even PR is down to a dribble. All in contradiction to the law and all doomed to eventually fall could of a judicial review and a mass grant, but there you go. Rather than openly change the law, just don’t process the paperwork.

            Sure all the gay Caymanians will be pleased to know it’s just an expat issue, and that corrupt and ineffective government is only an expat issue as well.

        Not true. PPM refused to take action against him as Speaker, when Mac was part of the PPM led Unity government. KB didn’t support a private member’s motion from the Opposition MP, which required one more vote. That would not have ensured Mac had to go, because PPM was standing behind him in silence.

    At times like this it makes you wish that the only embarrassment to Cayman was silly comments from Dwayne Seymour. How bad have things got when that becomes a desire? PACT and PPM are the definition of insanity. Aligning themselves with Mac and expecting a different result.

        West Bay and Bodden Town MPs are destroying the Cayman Islands.

        MPs from the Brac are useless. MP for WBW is just as bad as the one for Red Bay.

        We’re in a mess. GTS and GTW MPs are more clueless than Seymour.

        GTE MP is controlled by Alden. Wayne and Andre are colluding against their own PACT.

        Looks like a clean sweep of all current MPs may be a reality in the next election.

        Attendance more likely due to fear of administrative or employment reprisals I would have thought. Not just wp holders either. The fact is 250 people who post on CNS are not representative of voting Caymanians, the majority of whom evidently think this behavior is acceptable.

      Protests don’t do anything in Cayman. Petitions can. Create a petition to the Governor to change the Elections Law to disqualify those with any past criminal convictions (like any employer for a position of trust), or facing serious charges, including DUI Traffic Court. If you don’t do that, nothing will change. Many enjoy the current levels of unaccountability and corrupt behaviour and won’t change the rules against themselves. Voters must initiate that change.

      There should be one national vote for Premier (who, after winning, should be able to choose their Cabinet from outside Parliament, but let Parliament approve the chosen members of Cabinet) as well as one simultaneous national vote for Speaker.

      That way, without doubt, it takes much unhelpful horse trading out of the equation. Let MPs, who are elected to Parliament, carry out legislative functions and let the Cabinet (led by the Premier) carry out execution branch functions.

      A National vote for both the Premier and the Speaker is more democratic.
