Right-Wing Politico At Gay Bar Before Fatal Crash?


Jörg Haider’s far-right politics helped him make a name – and a career – for himself in Austria.

Known for his at times inflammatory tone, Haider became quite the prominent face for the nation’s social conservatives. That face, however, will be seen no more, for Haider died in a shocking car accident last week.

Now that he’s dead and gone, however, some are claiming the politician hit up a gay-friendly club before the accident:

According to a report by the German-language newspaper Bild, Haider’s evening began with a surprise appearance at the launch party of a new Austrian tabloid, where he was photographed in the company of a young local woman.

However, contrary to previous reports, the evening of the charismatic leader did not end there. Before heading home, Haider made a quick visit to Stadtkraeme, a local club famous for its gay night scene.

Haider was spotted leaving the place on his own shortly before 1 A.M., fatally crashing his car half an hour later.

This wouldn’t be the first time Haider’s name has been linked to the homos. An Austrian paper claimed eight years ago that the politico, who has been accused of anti-semitism, enjoyed the company of other men.
