CTV News continues to ask Patrick Brown if he thinks the two women accusing him of sexual misconduct are lying.
In an interview, the lawyer suggested Brown's response has generally exhibited "tone deafness", and would mean even fewer women coming forward about alleged sexual misconduct in future.
CTV acknowledged Tuesday night a pivotal accusation - that Brown plied an underage high school girl with booze - is not true.
"Running scared over its lousy reporting, CTV News now says my accuser was out of high school at the time and was of legal drinking age", he continued.
Caucus's decision was made easier by the fact that six of Brown's top aides had resigned earlier in the evening in protest of his refusal to quit when informed about the CTV allegations.
Brown's second accuser also said she stands by her allegations, CTV reported.
Though her friend later left Brown's house, the accuser stayed back.
He says quote, "You lied". "We met through church at a youth group there".
The man says he only found out on Tuesday the woman was identifying him as the person who drove her to Brown's when CTV called him to fact-check her story.
Brown lashed out at the national television network for "not even having the decency to come clean and admit that they recklessly published a poorly researched report", he wrote on Facebook. "Quite simply I didn't start drinking until a little bit later in life".
CTV reported that the two women, neither of whom has been named, were standing by their allegations, but did acknowledge that a key part of one accuser's story was incorrect as originally reported.
There is nothing in what Patrick Brown alleges that undermines the core truth of what I have experienced with him.
Brown's second accuser, who worked as a summer student in his office in 2013, said he fed her drinks following a Barrie hockey fundraiser, kissed her without her permission and tried to pressure her into sex in his bedroom during a party, which she described to CTV as a "sexual assault". "He would come over and talk to me and she would go over, she just wanted to be around him, it seemed". I want to get to the bottom of this. "I would characterize that as a sexual assault". She alleged the then-35-year-old MP got on top of her and tried to kiss her when she was very drunk.
"She did not intimate to me that it was inappropriate or unwanted in nature at all and she also expressed regrets that she had been unfaithful to her boyfriend at that time".
When they were alone, he exposed himself and asked for oral sex, she said. "He categorically told CTV that this was completely untrue".
Mikaela Patterson, who dating Brown at the time, was in the next room in fact.
The accused had said Brown had forced on her when she visited the then PC leader's bedroom. "He nearly immediately came back down and said he was driving her home". "I think this is something that we are going to be talking about for years", said Mills.
"If I had seen her downtown at the bars, I would have said hello and that's it", said the man, now 29, a resident of Barrie, in an exclusive phone interview with CBC News.
Brown called the change in the narrative "monumental".
However, Brown had denied all allegations leveled against him. Brown has said the CTV story is crumbling after the broadcaster admitted that one of the women was not a minor, as it first reported, when he allegedly molested her in some fashion ten years ago.
Stressing "this is not over", Brown said he has been humbled by the "the dozens of candidates and caucus members, thousands of Ontario PC Party members and tens of thousands of Ontarians who have supported me and my family through this very hard time", he wrote on Facebook.
