[1] Kate Connolly, "Haider is Gay, Says German Report", The Guardian, 24 March 2000: "A report in the leftwing Berlin Tageszeitung, or Taz, headlined "Jörg Simply Wants a Cuddle", and repeated in the Austrian daily Der Standard yesterday, says that the gay community in Austria has had evidence that Mr. Haider is gay for some time. But, say the newspapers, it has been reluctant to release the evidence, fearing an outburst of hate towards the gay community "that would overtake the hatred towards foreigners" [...] According to Taz, many members of Vienna's gay scene are ready to confirm the reports. They claim he regularly has sex with young men below the age of consent -- 18 for homosexuals. As a result, says Taz: "These days he prefers to meet with boys from nearby Slovakia" (where the age of consent is 15). The paper also refers to Mr. Haider's alleged cocaine habit."

[2] Member of the Freedom Party of Austria until 2005, and thereafter the Alliance for the Future of Austria. Haider was leader of that party in 2005-06, and in 2008 until his death.
