This is one of those stories that just makes you feel good all over. France’s Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand apparently likes young boys; and I don’t mean riding bikes with them either. Mitterrand wrote a book in 2005 titled: “The Bad Life”.
Sounds like Frederic Mitterrand would fit nicely in Obama’s Administration as what, maybe Culture Czar? Mitterrand wrote of his time in Thailand when he got into the habit of “paying for young boys”. How nice. From the BBC:
“I got into the habit of paying for boys,” saying his attraction to young male prostitutes was not dimmed despite knowing “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.”
Yeah, I can see how a guy like that would find his way into public office, especially in France. The BBC says that because he didn’t share his uncles “socialist” policies he was brought into Sarkozy’s center-right government.
So in France if you’re not a socialist you’re deemed to be center-right? Anyway, the sicko had for the most part gotten away with his nasty little fetish for young boys; that is until he came out strongly supporting another real winner, Roman Polanski.
Frederic Mitterrand is currently being harshly criticized by both the right and left in France. It’s been suggested that he step down from his position as Culture Minister.
