Clegg denies that there was any cover up and the party member in question has strongly disputed the allegations.   
All organisations are vulnerable to allegations of sexual harassment and abuse. The Catholic Church is one example, where allegations have been emerging now from many years back of abuse by clergy. In some cases, these allegations have become criminal charges.

In case after case that I have handled, very often a picture emerges of an organisation that is quite unable to deal effectively with allegations of abuse, and which sometimes seeks to move the problem elsewhere with disastrous results.

What is important in today's environment is for
a) the allegations to be taken seriously
b) the relevant authorities, such as the police and social services to be called in as soon as possible.
