"What people do privately is up to them"… Nazi swine

It's not a pretty mental picture: an elderly man shouts out orders in German while he whips some hookers. It's an even worse image when a five-hour video surfaces and the man in question is Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) president Max Mosley cavorting with five hookers and reenacting some sort of Nazi sex fantasy.
The website Gambling911.com describes the video's high (or low) points, and notes that Mosley plays both sides of the coin. At one point he whips a brunette hooker while counting off the lashes in German. Later, he plays a death camp inmate and submits to a genital inspection before he's given a bare-bottom lashing.
Students of British history might recall that Mosley's father, Sir Oswald Mosley was an alleged Nazi sympathizer during World War II.
When the existence of the tape was revealed by British tabloid News of the World
, the reaction was swift. Mosley is now under pressure to resign his position.
However, a Mosley spokesman said, "This is a matter between Mr. Mosely and the newspaper in question, and the FIA has no comment." And in a move that only the privileged and moneyed classes could comprehend, Mosley is believed to have begun legal action against News of the World
Formula One Management and Formula One Administration president and CEO Bernie Ecclestone has said, "Assuming it's all true, what people do privately is up to them. I don't honestly believe [it] affects the sport in any way."
Mosley is currently serving his fourth term as president of the FIA, a non-profit association that represents the interests of international motoring organization and acts as the governing body for Formula One and other international motor sports.
Mosley has long been involved in politics: as a teen, he arranged social activities for the Union Movement (UM), a post-war party led by his father. He was later a prospective UM parliamentary candidate, but the association of the family's name with fascism put the brakes on further political aspirations.
However, with the revelation of the five-hour sex tape, it's apparent that Mosley has developed a rich inner life.
