The communications manager of Sheffield Hallam MP Jared O’Mara has resigned amid a flurry of angry tweets published on the MP’s Twitter account.
In a thread, it appears that Gareth Arnold, a member of Mr O’Mara’s constituency staff, accused him of showing “inexcusable contempt” for constituents.
“Jared, you are the most disgustingly morally bankrupt person I have ever had the displeasure of working with,” was posted from Mr O’Mara’s account.
The BBC has asked Mr O’Mara to comment.
The Twitter thread continued: “Sheffield Hallam deserves so much better than you. You have wasted opportunities which people dare not to even dream of.”
The thread told the MP to “call a byelection” and told Mr O’Mara to consider the Twitter posts as his “resignation”.
Mr O’Mara, 37, quit the Labour party in July 2018 after being suspended over alleged misogynistic and homophobic comments posted online.
His victory against former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg in the Sheffield Hallam seat was one of the shocks of the 2017 general election.
Speaking to the BBC earlier in July, the now independent MP, said he intended to stand for election again despite criticism of his voting record.
“I am going nowhere, and I’m here for you whether you want me here for you or not.” he said at the time.
“With the support of those around me and with renewed vigour, I’m standing again next time.”
