  • Prominent pro-Arab lobbyist Möllemann dies, very likely by suicide

    Posted by Ralf Goergens on June 7th, 2003 (All posts by )

    Möllemann published an anti-Israeli flyer during the federal election campaign last year causing a scandal that cost the FDP (Freie Demokratische Partei) a lot of votes, unfortunately just enough to let Schröder squeak by with a tiny majority of about 6.000. It turned out later that Möllemann may have financed the flyer by illegal campaign contributions and is also possibly guilty of fraud and other offenses. After months of investigations the Bundestag revoked his parliamentary immunity on Thursday, shortly afterwards police raided 25 buildings in four European countries. Less than 30 minutes later Möllemann plummeted to his death while parachuting; since there are no signs that his equipment was sabotaged suicide seems very likely.

    Stefan Sharkansky has more; he has kept an eye on Möllemann for over a year and has even devoted a website to him: moellemann.com.

      All of the people I have devoted websites to have died in bizarre accidents (well, okay, 1 out of 1 still counts as “all”). My web server might have to be classified as a weapon of mass destruction.

      Last thing I heard the Marines were on their way to to Seattle to take out your Server.

      Is Diana Moon being ironic here, or beatific?
