Disgraced, dismissed, and discredited, 50Plus parliamentarian and Friends of Gay Krant Founder Henk Krol has again come under fire after it emerged on Monday that he artificially inflated circulation figures of his magazine Gay Krant, which was placed into bankruptcy in March 2013. According to Gay Krant shareholder Marc Putman, Krol continually told advertisers that the Gay Krant had a circulation of around 60,000 subscribers.
Senior party 50Plus is currently in a state of chaos. After an "irreparable breach of trust", fraction leader Norbert Klein kicked his colleague Martine Baay from the fraction on Wednesday. The party has now denounced its trust in Norbert Klein. Baay is continuing in Parliament under her own name, and Klein is continuing as only MP for 50Plus.
50Plus party leader Henk Krol, resigns from his position as representative of the people, after it has come to light that he evaded paying pension premiums for his staff for years.
