Mathieu Cahn announced on Wednesday 12 February that he was withdrawing from the socialist list led by Catherine Trautmann in the municipal elections in Strasbourg. This decision comes a few hours after the revelations about a вЂњtroublesomeвЂќ past: erotic photos of female students.
Mathieu Cahn, former List leader, passed in the second position, announced on Wednesday 12 February that he was withdrawing from the socialist list led by Catherine Trautmann.
This decision comes a few hours after the revelations about a вЂњtroublesomeвЂќ past: erotic photos.
вЂњThey're trying to hurt me, to discredit meвЂќ, reported to Mathieu Caen.
According to the information revealed on Tuesday 11 February, by Rue89 Strasbourg and Mediapart, the former Socialist List leader for the upcoming municipal elections, would be forced to give up his place to Catherine Trautmann.
Last Wednesday, February 5, to the general surprise, Mathieu Cahn had indeed announced his relegation to the second position behind the former minister and Mayor of Strasbourg, claiming a case of sexual violence, in which he is indirectly questioned and whose trial will be held in the middle of two rounds.
вЂњI know that I could, in this case, be the object of personal attacks. They would aim, if they were to materialize, to plunge this trial into a polemical atmosphere to destabilize the top of the list that I am,вЂќ Mathieu Cahn said at the time. Except for that question destabilization, the bomb would explode anyway and much more strongly.
Between 2004 and 2011, Mathieu Cahn, an amateur photographer, allegedly paid young students to take lascivious poses and make photos described as erotic to feed his own blog, published under the Name, Mathieu Borowicz.
вЂњPaying girls to indulge her photographic inclinations is sexual exploitationвЂќ
When the link was discovered in 2011, socialist activists rose up. Can we have an elected representative in charge of youth and make students work like this? In response, the вЂњblog de BoroвЂќ is deleted.
вЂњIt is not possible that it is he who leads us. What is the message of the deputy mayor: Strasbourg loves its students, right? Paying girls to satisfy their photographic inclinations is sexual exploitation, вЂњ one activist told Rue89.
Mathieu Cahn admitted that he was actually engaged in amateur photography and for several years kept the page onвЂќ specialized siteвЂњ.
вЂњI posted photos of animals, landscapes, portraits, and photos of naked girls who had nothing pornographic. I took pictures of students as well as professional models, but nothing elseвЂќ, he continues.
The Mathieu Cahn (fallen leader) continues to claim that he himself made the decision to withdraw. вЂњI had a conversation with Olivier Faure, he left me the choice of the sequel,вЂќ he assures, claiming to have acted to protect Catherine Trautmann and the PS list.
