Nazi Leaders Wear Tutus

Dan Friedman just forwarded this link to the BBC website. The leader of the far-right Alliance for Austria's Future, Stefan Petzner:

"told Austrian radio that Mr Haider, whom he met five years ago, was 'the man of my life'. Mr Haider, 58, died in a high-speed car crash earlier this month. He had a high blood alcohol level. His party, the Alliance for Austria's Future, insisted on Thursday that Mr Petzner 'wasn't his lover'.

Haider was the former head of the far-right party. According to the BBC:

"Mr Petzner has described feeling a magnetic attraction to Mr Haider.

"'We had a special relationship that went far beyond friendship," Mr Petzner said in an emotional interview on Austrian national radio.

"'Joerg and I were connected by something truly special. He was the man of my life," he added. 'I loved him as a best friend.'"
