Hohmann Go Home11 Nov 2003
When I first posted about the anti-semitic remarks by CDU Bundestag member Martin Hohmann, I thought it would be a back page story that would be forgotten the next day. I even tried to push the story to other blogs to make sure it would not go unnoticed. How wrong I was. Pressure has built on the CDU leadership to go beyond censuring Homann, especially after Defence Minister Struck fired the general in charge of Germany's special forces (KSK) for supporting Hohmann.
The CDU leadership has now buckled, and has started the process of expelling Hohmann from the Bundestag faction and the party. Late, Frau Merkel, but not too late. You can take your ear off the ground now.
