The Hódmezővásárhely chapter of the governing party Fidesz published the private particulars of three persons under the pressure of the community because they allegedly participated in the preparation of János Lázár’s speech. He became famous for his luxurious lifestyle, although he raised his voice against poor people. Lázár stated three years ago: who has nothing, is worth nothing. According to estimates, the local Fidesz chapter spent hundreds of thousands of forints on the discrediting advertisement without having any proof that manipulation actually happened. Moreover, Fidesz conflicted itself when they tried to explain Lázár’s monologue. It is frequently mentioned in the advertisement that the record was ‘fake’, although Lázár confessed that he uttered those words, and apologised. It is true that he argued that two of his sentences had been taken out of context because he had not been talking about poor people but greedy politicians. According to the version of the report published by Fidesz, the expression ‘greed’ does not appear in the text.
