In the German Pirate Party there is a case of somebody (“Bodo Thiesen”) who was voted to as a replacement party judge who in the past has talked like he would deny the holocaust. The board of directors was yet not willing to exclude him from party, although he had been warned to say such shit again. On the party convention in july he was voted by members to his office. Somebody questioned his political views but he was laughed at na people voted for “Bodo” anyway. Now the media has taken this story and the pirate party, instead of being able to prepare for national vote in september has to defend itself. This is very unfortunate and will cost a lot of votes and possible members.
