All Spitzer did was pay too much & leave his socks on
LONDON (Reuters) - Max Mosley faced calls for his resignation on Tuesday after weekend newspaper allegations that the head of Formula One's governing body took part in a Nazi-style orgy with prostitutes.The most interesting thing isn't the Nazi sex party angle. There will be plenty of those in hotel rooms during the Republican National Convention in September. It's that Max Mosley is the son of Sir Oswald Mosley & Diana Mitford, England's most notorious fascists & Nazi sympathizers in the 1930's, who were married in Joseph Goebbels's house with Hitler as a guest. Mitford remained an unrepentent Third Reich boot-licker until her death in 2003. But Maxie is typical of the Brit upper crust obsession with S &M. They take their cues from the Royals. Thank you, Monty Python.
The Times newspaper said in a leader column that Mosley must stand down while Ferrari's 1979 world champion Jody Scheckter called for a concerted media campaign to force the Briton's hand.
"There is absolutely no question in my mind that Mosley should resign," South African Scheckter told The Guardian newspaper.
"From a purely motor racing point of view, you can't have somebody like this running the sport or any other sport come to that."
The Times said Mosley was as entitled as anyone to his fantasies but the question of whether he could continue at the helm of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) had become a moral question and not a legal one.
