Love Parade: The mayor was still there

Adolf Sauerland, mayor of Duisburg at the time of the Love Parade disaster in 2010, has been recalled in a special vote.

Sauerland has repeatedly refused to take any form of responsibility for the poor planning at the event, at which 21 people were crushed to death. An attempt to unseat him from within the city council failed; instead, it took a poll of the full electorate of the city to get rid of him.
