Where's the corresponding thread re Mr. Müller by the way. Guess it is a case of one rule for the women and another for the men. So I'll address the imbalance.

If she's been fired, so should he be.

It's rather a case of a well-connected politician vs. an ordinary secretary.

He is not an employee but an elected official. There are no legal means to "fire" or "suspend" him. He will stay at least until the next elections unless he decides to resign or it turns out that he commited a criminal offense, which doesn't seem to be the case at this time.

For the sake of accuracy and your education, une fouine is a beech marten, not a weasel. It's favourite activity is to rip little necks or other protruding members off- so watch out

From the photos and videos it seems that she's not into 'little'.

The two cases are hardly comparable. The secretary published nude pictures of herself of twitter for everybody to see, whereas Müller sent nude pictures of himself to single person to whom he had some kind of a relationship. At some point Müller ended the relationship upon which the woman started stalking him and offering the pictures to the press. Interestingly both Blick and Weltwoche chose not to publish the story although they had the pictures for months. Now this woman was arrested by Baden police (city of which Müller is president). As the editor in chief of Schweiz am Sonntag could not be arsed into doing proper research he constructed a story of abuse of office (another possibility is that he was persuing a certain agenda...). In fact the reason why she was arrested is that she has sent suicide treats to Müller (she has now admitted that herself). Müller then informed the Bernese cantonal police (where the woman lifes) about the suicide treats. At that point the woman had already left her home for Baden. Thus the Bernese cantonal police informed the Argovian cantonal police, who then made the arrest in Baden. Müller was only involved insofar that he informed the police about the suicide treat. Something that could be easily checked by doing a little reseach...

Unless you think, that the sex life of politicians should be public in general (lifefeed in all politicians bedrooms, anyone?), Müller's story has nothing to do in the press.

Re: Government Worker Suspended for Tweeting Amateur Porn Selfies at Job

I take the view that so long as what they do in their private life doesn't affect their work, they can do as they like. If you want to be stupid enough to post racy selfies on the internet that's your problem. Of course I can't see why anyone would want to take a selfie in the first place, racy or not. Does she deserve to be fired? Not that I can see. Should he resign, nope.

About "Unless you think, that the sex life of politicians should be public in general". Well if they choose to go into public office then they cannot be so naive or arrogant as to think their private lives will continue to be private? Look at Clinton, Berlusconi and countless others.

Re: Government Worker Suspended for Tweeting Amateur Porn Selfies at Job

We often used to see Geri Müller cycling and walking through Baden, he likes to mingle with the people. I wonder when he will dare to be seen in public again.
Personally, I think he was very foolish to do what he did, but shouldn't resign.
The people will decide at the next election.

Re: Government Worker Suspended for Tweeting Amateur Porn Selfies at Job

I'm sorry this secretary has lost (or is about to) lose her job, but this was a really dumb thing to do. But at least she's Swiss. If this happened in my country, some prosecutor would be trying to put her on the sex offender registry. If that doesn't sound particularly funny---well, it wasn't meant to be.

Wondered how long it would take for tourist areas of interest to ban these selfie sticks.
