Shame of Ukip's 'Rampant Rabbi' Candidate in Sordid Sex Role-Play with Woman He Met on Bondage Site; but He Won't Even Shake Female Rivals' Hands 'On Religious Grounds'

A MARRIED rabbi standing for Ukip in the mayoral elections has been having an affair with a woman he met on a bondage website.

Shneur Odze, 36, who faces former Labour Cabinet Minister Andy Burnham in the race to become the Mayor of Manchester, is accused of playing out a disturbing 'sexual fantasy' with the young woman.

Odze - who was revealed earlier this month to have burned a 'bible' before posting the pictures of the event on social media - met the 25-year-old office worker through a bondage and sadomasochism website.

The rabbi is a senior member of the ultra-orthodox Lubavitcher sect and has previously refused to shake hands with female political opponents on 'religious grounds'.

But according to the woman he met on the bondage site, he:

Bizarrely posed as a Roman Catholic priest in his online profile, styling himself 'His Worshipful' and 'The Right Reverend';

Indulged in disturbing sexual role play games;

Bombarded her with sexually explicit text messages and begged her to join him in a threesome with another woman he had met online;

Sent sexually explicit texts on the Sabbath;

Told her that his name was Simon, and never revealed who he really was, or that he was married.

The revelations will be a further blow to Ukip's floundering General Election campaign under new leader Paul Nuttall.

Since last summer's Brexit vote, and the departure of former leader Nigel Farage, Ukip's core voters have flocked back to the Conservatives.

The woman, who we are calling Cassie, told The Mail on Sunday that she was contacted by the rabbi, who has four daughters, last November via Fetlife.com.

The site has been described as 'like Facebook, but run by the kinky community'.

In a profile headed 'His Worshipful', Odze borrowed a stock image of a handsome young priest reading a prayer book and announced: 'I have been into various aspects of 'It's about a voyage of self-discovery' BDSM for a number of years now, alibi [sic] more off than on. Over that time I have tried a great deal and enjoyed even more.' He added: 'It's about a voyage of self-discovery, fulfilling that inner void, living for the moment' He signed off: 'The Right Reverend.' Cassie, who describes herself as 'submissive', said Odze drove from his home in Salford to her flat in York for their first encounter.

'He told me in a text to open the communal door and the one to my flat. When he came in, he put my wrists and ankles in plastic handcuffs and blindfolded me,' she claimed.

'He also hit me across the buttocks for all the times I'd forgotten to call him Sir.' What happened thereafter will be inexplicable to most people, but Cassie offers her own explanation.

She said her condition had been described to her by doctors as 'compulsive self-destructive sexual behaviour'.

She and Odze had consensual sex, and despite her misgivings about him, she agreed to meet him on three further occasions: twice at her flat, and once in nearby Harrogate, where they had sex in his car. …
