Minister under fire for gay sex tourism

No it isn’t Chris Carter.

It is a French Minister. French Culture Minister Fredric Mitterand.

French Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand faces calls for his resignation over a 2005 autobiography in which he wrote about paying “young boys” for sex during trips abroad.

The revelations in his book “The Bad Life” have come back to haunt Mitterrand since his impassioned defence of film maker Roman Polanski, who faces deportation from Switzerland to the United States for having had sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.

Politicians of all colours have criticised Mitterrand for his virulent attack on the United States. The far-right National Front has fuelled the row by digging out excerpts from Mitterrand’s book that have raised eyebrows in France.

“I got into the habit of paying for boys,” Mitterrand wrote, adding that his attraction to young male prostitutes continued even though he knew “the sordid details of this traffic.”

“All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excited me enormously … the abundance of very attractive and immediately available young boys put me in a state of desire.”

Resign, how about a bullet in the back of the head for such reprehensible behaviour. It’s worse than going to Dubai and having fun with camel jockeys.
