Essen: CDU Bundestag candidate Florian Fuchs receives dubious “AfD offer” – he should change parties

When Fuchs, who is also a CDU councilor, directly declines this request (“Definitely not!”), She continues to try to woo him: “What a shame. Would fit in, just get in touch if you don’t feel like joining the CDU anymore. ”Fuchs replies that he“ doesn’t fit in any way ”with the AfD, and the woman replies:“ It doesn’t matter, the main thing is career. Have much better chances of advancing, etc. “

However, the obscure attempt at poaching is dubious, as it has since emerged. Compared to DERWESTEN.de, AfD district spokesman Günter Weiß explained that the process was “completely unknown” to him. Someone must have acted “of their own free will”.
