Blogger ousts Swedish public official

Posted By on Thu, Oct 19, 2006 at 9:17 AM

Here's Vincent Maher's account of the Ljungkvist/Borelius incident. An excerpt:

Recently, Magnus Ljungkvist (press secretary for Sweden's Social Democrat party and a blogger), revealed  financial mismanagement and tax evasion by Maria Borelius, the Swedish Minister for Foreign Trade. This led to her resignation this week after just six days in office. (Note: Ljungkvist's blog is in Swedish. For background in English, and more links, see Media Culpa.)
