THE deputy police and crime commissioner for Hertfordshire has resigned today (Wednesday) after sharing a Twitter post which likened socialists with Nazis.
Dr Rachel Frosh retweeted a post from another user on the social networking website which read: “Dear Socialists embrace your inner Nazism” with a picture and quote from Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
Hertfordshire police and crime commissioner David Lloyd accepted Dr Frosh’s resignation this morning.
Dr Frosh said: “I appreciate that David must have constructive relationships with all political parties. I recognise that I am not able to fully comment on some political issues whilst remaining as deputy police and crime commissioner. It is therefore with great regret that I have tendered my resignation this morning.”
Commissioner Lloyd said: “I am sad to have to accept Rachel’s resignation. She has taken the honourable course of action by making this decision and I will miss her valuable contribution to my work to further improve policing and crime reductions for the public of Hertfordshire.”
