Another Polanski defender

Frederic Mitterrand is the French Minister of Culture and Communication, and the nephew of a former French President.

He is the leading European defender of admitted child rapist Roman Polanski.

"Mitterrand's autobiographical novel The Bad Life (French: La mauvaise vie) was a best seller in 2005. In the book he details his "delight" whilst visiting the male brothels of Bangkok, and writes, 'I got into the habit of paying for boys . . . The profusion of young, very attractive and immediately available boys put me in a state of desire I no longer needed to restrain or hide.'"

It's no surprise that Mitterrand defends Polanski. It is surprising that anyone else wants to be on the same side as Mitterrand and Polanski.
