How Embarrassing! Politician Caught Stealing Toilet Paper!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A German politician has been caught short after janitors collared him red-handed pilfering toilet roll from the gents in the town hall during a sting operation, authorities said on Wednesday.

Janitors` suspicions were raised when more than 200 rolls vanished and they laid a trap for Frank-Michael John, 24, a member of the far-left Die Linke party in the regional council of Stralsund, northern Germany.

They discovered him exiting the toilet with one roll in his hand and another in a backpack, according to several media."


A YouTube video showing Czech President Vaclav Klaus stealing a pen during a press conference has inspired a lot of jokes and conversation around the water cooler.

Now all the attention is on a German politician who was caught stealing toilet paper, unfortunately there`s no video of the theft.

Politicians are full of crap, it`s understandable why John would need a couple of extra rolls of toilet paper. Let`s just hope that toilet paper is the only thing he`s stealing .
