German defence minister Guttenberg resigns

German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg steps down after he was found to have copied large parts of his university doctorate.

German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has stepped down after he was found to have
copied large parts of his university doctorate.
Mr Guttenberg, considered until recently a possible candidate for chancellor, has already been stripped of his PhD.
He told a news conference he was resigning from all political offices.
More than 20,000 German academics wrote to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday complaining he was still in his job.
But
Ms Merkel had continued to stand by him
, with her party facing three state elections later this month.
"I thank the chancellor for her support but I have reached the limits of my strength," he told reporters in Berlin.

Okay, it's a little off-topic, but I mean really, the sheer nerve of some of these politicians. Seems like there's nothing they won't do. :ph34r:
