German Mayor Blasts Far-Right, Reveals Porn Browsing

Pau Dallison, Politico, February 19, 2016

The mayor of a small German town thought he was making a serious point about the rise of the far-right Alternative for Germany party–but was revealing his Internet porn browsing history.

Thomas Köppl, the mayor of Quickborn near Hamburg, was taking part in a debate on the AfD and used a screenshot of the German constitution to make his point, German newspaper Bild reported. But he had forgotten to close other, XXX-rated tabs on his Internet browser for pages with titles such as “Punishment porn videos” and “German slut punished.”

Köppl deleted the screenshot when he realized his error, but it was too late.

He later admitted that he had visited the sites but had an explanation to hand. The mayor said that while on holiday in South Tyrol he overheard a group of young men talking about “BDSM”–a variety of erotic practices involving bondage, dominance and sadomasochism.
