Angela Merkel & Vera Lengsfeld Cleavage Campaign Posters
Germany's CDU party has embraced the fine art of shameless pandering, using some cleavage-intensive photos of Chancellor Angela Merkel and candidate Vera Lengsveld. The poser depicts both women in low-cut dresses with the slogan "Wir haben mehr zu bieten", which translates to "We have more to offer".
This poster was not approved by Angela Merkel.
Mrs Lengsfeld, a former East German dissident, said she had not cleared the picture beforehand with Mrs Merkel, 55, telling rolling news channel N24: "The chancellor could never have allowed me to do this, otherwise everyone would have wanted to do it."
Opinion is divided on Vera Lengsfeld's blog, with some appreciating the humor while others denouncing it as "shameful". (German-language blog link)
