Someone is trying to tarnish the image of Jamaica’s former tourism minister, Damion Crawford. A letter was released on Sunday from what is believed to be his own People’s National Party (PNP), claiming that the Rasta was gay.
Crawford vehemently denies the accusation and made it clear that he was in no way attracted to the same sex.
“It’s not the first time rumors have been brought against me and it won’t be the last. I am sure of my heterosexuality and that’s all there is to it” Crawford told a popular Jamaican tabloid.
Crawford says that the fact that people from his own party would stoop to such a level to tarnish his name shows what a threat he is within the party.
Crawford served for one term as Member of Parliament for East Rural St Andrew between 2011 and 2016.
