Expelled German MP gets Offer to Join Schill Party

Martin Hohmann, the conservative German politician expelled on Friday from the Christian Democrats’ parliamentary group for anti-Jewish remarks, has received an offer to join the right-wing party founded by Hamburg judge Ronald Schill. “When Mr. Hohmann is interested in working with our party, then he knows where he can reach me,” Mario Mettbach, the Schill party’s national chairman, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. Were Hohmann to take Mettbach up on his offer, he would be the Schill party’s first member of parliament. The right-wing party is currently part of the Hamburg city government. Despite sizable internal resistance, the Christian Democrats’ Bundestag group ejected Hohmann last week for calling Jews a “race of perpetrators” in a speech in October.
