“WebAttack2 by Roman Maria Koidl, Goldmann Verlag 2013
Simple, clear, entertaining: with his book ”Web Attack – Der Staat als Stalker” (Web Attack – Stalked by the State) bestselling author Roman Maria Koidl demands a broad public debate about the future of our freedom / Recently published by Goldmann
I am withdrawing from my role as Peer Steinbrück’s consultant for online matters for the election campaign of autumn 2013 with immediate effect.
I cannot accept that incorrect and dishonouring reports about me are used in order to damage the reputation of chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrück.
With this decision I would like to make clear that I consider it unacceptable that I should be the subject of reports in the election campaign.
My concern was to provide consultation and support in online/digital matters, because I am convinced that Peer Steinbrück will be an excellent chancellor.
Since the deliberations about our contract have not been not finalized, I shall now withdraw my offer to support the Steinbrück team.
