UK Deputy Prime Minister Quits After Bullying Investigation

LONDON (AP) — U.K. Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has resigned after an independent investigation into complaints that he bullied civil servants.

Raab’s decision Friday came the day after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak received findings into eight formal complaints that Raab, who is also justice secretary, had been abusive toward staff during a previous stint in that office and while serving as foreign secretary and Brexit secretary.

Raab had denied the allegations.

He says two of the complaints were upheld and criticized the findings as flawed.

He said he was quitting because he had vowed to do so if the bullying complaints were substantiated.
