CHANGE: Sweden’s first Muslim minister quits over drink-driving scandal.

Funny, but this story didn’t mention she was Muslim, but it did tell us this:

She is not the only politician to have to drop out since Sweden’s political left returned to power two years ago.

Deputy premier and environment minister Asa Romson from the Green party resigned in May after a series of gaffes, the last being to describe the 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States as “the accidents of September 11”.

Housing minister Mehmet Kaplan, of Turkish origin, had to step down in April after comparing Israelis to the Nazis, and Mona Sahlin, the national coordinator for protecting democracy against violent extremism, was forced to resign in May after media revealed that she had made false income declarations for her bodyguard to help him obtain bank loans.
