Brooklyn state Sen. Kevin Parker has denied allegations he raped a woman in 2004, days after the woman filed a bombshell lawsuit against him under the Adult Survivors Act.
Parker was sued on Friday in Brooklyn Supreme Court by Olga Jean-Baptiste, who claims the longtime Senator raped her at her apartment after discussing her trip to Haiti to deliver relief supplies following catastrophic flooding there. The suit was first reported by amNewYork Metro on Sunday.
On Wednesday, Parker said that the allegations are “absolutely untrue.”
“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,” Parker said in a statement. “My work and advocacy will continue.”
