back to article German mayor's browser tabs catch him with trousers down

A German mayor has been left red faced after he posted online a screenshot of his browser without noticing open window tabs with adult material. Thomas Köppl grabbed the screenshot on his iPad with his main browser window showing a Wikipedia page about the German Constitution and posted it on his Facebook page as part of a …

Seems legit

No connoisseur of BDSM would ever use xHamster.

I was going to say "So what"...

... however a look at the ideology of the Alternative for Germany party, they're centre-right Conservatives, oppose gay marriage and have been accused of using language that is very similar to that of the far-right.

So it seems that he's another "do as I say, not as I do" hypocrite.

Oh and a couple of little corrections for Kieren McCarthy: BDSM is comes from Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and submission and Sadism and Masochism and as for "Basically, if you're watching someone in leather tied up and being sexually humiliated, you've found BDSM", that's a very narrow generalisation of what is an incredibly broad topic which involves a lot more than just leather or sexual humiliation.

Re: I was going to say "So what"...

Thomas Köppl is a member of the CDU, (CDU homepage), which of course doesn't mean that he's not a hypocrite.

However, Köppl is available for a personal meeting, provided you contact his office to arrange an appointment.

On the subject ot the AfD: don't even get me started, that'd be a post deleted by a moderator for sure.

Think he's explaining it the wrong way round ... he saw the way the german slut was being punished and wanted to check to see if that was permitted under the German Constitution as otherwise it would be his civic duty as a Mayor to file a complaint with the German Constitutional court.

Seems odd that all the tabs in in English yet he's a German. Don't they have German sites over there?

Boring answer: "GRATIS" suggests that the xHamster tab isn't in English, else it would probably say "FREE". The other tabs were probably launched from xHamster and show the titles of the videos. I don't think porn video suppliers are big on localisation.

Herr Koppl's future press conferences, campaign stops, and other events will no doubt be attended by voters in more ... interesting ... attire. [*whipcrack*] The signage should be pretty good too.

Re: the upside

Apparently his term ends on 2016-10-31 - so yes, there will be a campaign (I've first typed that as campaingn, I wonder why, but it didin't look right) in the late summer / fall. If his party will put him forward as a candidate again. But as this is already his second term, he'll be entitled to a full pension from the job as mayor.

BTW, it's about an hour's drive from Quickborn to Hamburg and its Reeperbahn. Where you can see the Beatles-Platz and visit Beatlemania, the Beatles museum. Which is the only reason why so many people go there every night, honestly.

From your link about the Reeperbahn:

"The hottest clubs on the Reeperbahn and Hamburger Berg open, with Irish pubs and Hans-Albers-Platz packed full of live music."

Really, no one goes to German pubs in Germany?

Think that's embarrassing?

Try bringing home a German slut video from your mate at college, with the plan of: empty house+ rub n tug, and after about 30-odd minutes, your mother knocks on your door and proceeds to remind you she's fluent in German and some things probably shouldn't be shoved into certain places.

Ein bisschen Spaß muss sein.....

Frankly, I don't care whether he looks are porn while on holiday, or anywhere else in his private life, whatever sort (as long as it involves consenting adults), end of story. But if he was on an iPad paid for by the taxpayer, and if he was Data Roaming, well then there's a legitimate "public interest". Selbstbefriedigung auf Kosten der Steuerzahler? Das ist verboten!

Mind you, he was probably looking at ways to "punish" the AfD leader, Frauke Petry, who came up with the crazy suggestion of shooting at immigrants trying to cross the border.

"Basically, if you're watching someone in leather tied up and being sexually humiliated, you've found BDSM"

Seriously? FFS this site was one of the few that had a sensible view of the overreach of the extreme porn law yet one of your staff comes out with crap like that. Do yourself a favour and put that application into the Daily Heil post haste you'll be far happier among that readership.

God forbid consenting adults get up to something in private that would make you uncomfortable. No idea if this guy is any good at representing constituents interests or not but who in the press cares about covering that. Either politicians comply with a two millenia old version of morality or they are incapable of doing the job and deserving of public humiliation, isn't it great to live in the enlightened times of the 21st century?

"deserving of public humiliation"

maybe that's what his twist on BDSM requires, a good bit of public humiliation.

Maybe you're taking that line a little too seriously AC. Grated it wasn't really needed, as I expect most people here are savvy enough about the world and the things one finds on the internet to know perfectly well what "BDSM" means. But I'm not sure it sure why you see it as an attack or something. Yes it's a bit stereotypical, but surely you wouldn't claim "someone in leather tied up and being sexually humiliated" isn't an example of BDSM.

Why did the last one need two tabs? Simple:

Google tells me it has at least 4 parts...

He'd have been better off laughing about it and saying "you got me, but hey, porn isn't a crime". But you know pollies, never tell the truth when a lie will do.

Is there a website for this?

How about a web site which offers convincing lies for people who get busted like this? I've always been a fan of "I clicked some strange thing a while back and ever since, my browser keeps automatically opening these links. I don't even notice them anymore".

To be honest, I'd have done the same thing, curious as I am to know what all these X rated hamsters are. Who is breeding them, and why? I shall just have to go look on xhamster for an explanation. Or maybe it's xrabbit.

So;

He was a bit naughty, who cares unless he is one of those moralising politicos

He was possibly a bit corrupt if it was paid for by his voters, this is uncertain

He was a complete idiot in not ensuring everything he puts on line was how he would have wanted it to appear
