A married Tory MP faces embarrassment after what appeared to be one of his private email addresses was found on adultery website Ashley Madison.
The address linked to former Police Minister Damian Green was apparently used from a computer in Parliament in 2007 to register with the cheaters’ site.
Whoever enrolled with Ashley Madison typed in the maiden name of Mr Green’s mum – Lyons – for the security question and appealed for a woman who “aches for good sex”.
Last night Mr Green, 59, said he had never used the notorious website.
He added he could not remember whether the aol.com address was his.
The influential Tory, who has been married to Alicia Collinson since 1988, said: “I don’t know anything about this. It’s nothing to do with me.
“I don’t know who has used this account. I’ve had so many email accounts over the years. I may have had an aol address many years ago.
“I have never registered for an account with Ashley Madison.”
The link was uncovered by blog site Political Scrapbook by trawling the 36 million email addresses of Ashley Madison account holders that were leaked online this week.
According to Political Scrapbook, the account was set up from Parliament at 10.27pm on March 27, 2007.
The Commons was sitting late that night as MPs voted on Gordon Brown’s final Budget as Chancellor.
The email address used was email@example.com, which a number of websites list as Mr Green’s personal email.
They entered a date of birth as 18/2/59 – three years after Mr Green was born. The user chose the username Villiers – perhaps a bizarre reference to top Tory Theresa Villiers.
The randy user’s profile said: “I would love to meet and pamper a bright sassy woman who knows what she wants and how to get it.
“I’m looking for some NSA [no strings attached] fun with a woman who has sparkling eyes, a lively sense of fun and an ache for some really good sex.”
An address of Scottish National Party MP Michelle Thomson was found in the database earlier this week.
She denied any knowledge and said her details had been “harvested by hackers”.
Ashley Madison does not verify email addresses. It means it is possible to use the site with someone else’s address.
Damian Green’s rise to political prominence came after a stint as a Channel 4 journalist.
He had also been a policy chief and speechwriter for John Major.
Mr Green has been an MP since 1997, representing Ashford in Kent for all that time.
David Cameron made him Immigration Minister when the Tories came to power in 2010 and he was promoted to Police Minister in 2012.
But he was sacked last summer in the PM’s pre-election reshuffle.
Mr Green and his barrister wife Alicia have two children.
What do you think of the hackers behind the Ashley Madison attack?
