So- Who’s Afraid of Christian Wullf??
I have noticed an interesting thing about this and some other releases, I seem to pick them up from “leftist” sources prior to any of the media.
The only mention of this early this morning was a Reuters piece, but not specific.
During the Iran Election mess a couple of year ago, it seemed that HuffPo always had early info on things there.
Conclusion: The left is globally coordinated now more than anyone will admit. So, I cannot help to wonder what the driving force for the global chaos that is rising is coming from. What Leftist Globalist Financial group is coordinating this?
In the article it looks like these are charges stemming from things that happened in some previous position, before he was President. It looks like some fairly small-potatoes stuff.

Yeesh... if only we could get politicians to step down over little stuff like that.
Wulff in sheep's clothing.
Thanks for the additional info.
