Councillor Richard Leese, who is also the leader of the council in Manchester, was arrested and cautioned after assaulting a female family member.
Councillor Mary Di Mauro challenged him after he made comments on his release from police custody stating "I don't think I've ever used the expression ‘zero tolerance'" in relation to the Council's approach to 'domestic' violence.
Councillor Di Mauro has been criticised for apparently using the situation to gain political points. The Mule interviewed her on the subject.
