BANZAI7 NEWS--When he took the job as French culture minister last June, Frédéric Mitterrand probably did not think that a four-year-old tell-all book could come back to haunt him.

But this week, his admission in a 2005 autobiography ("Le Douche") that he had paid for sex with “young boys” in Thailand became the subject of a growing campaign to oust him from the cabinet of President Nicolas Shark Attack.

The reason for the sudden interest in Mr. Mitterrand’s prose was his quick and energetic defense last month of the 76-year-old film director Roman Polanski, who is fighting extradition to the United States from Switzerland over having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Mr. Mitterrand, last month called the arrest “absolutely horrifying.”

This explains his horror.
