According to the sources of Egyenlítő, a political blog, the European Parliament’ relevant authorities are conducting an audit of Fidesz nominated Tamás Deutsch’s expense claims.
According to the website the politician – infamous for his obscene comments and scandalous dealings with women – became target of this current audit because he regularly claims and collects the EUR 220 subsidy owed and paid to politicians living in the countryside – which in his case would be owed to him for the distance travelled between Ferihegy (Budapest Airport) and Hódmezővásárhely – although he usually travels to the airport from Budapest. Mr Deutsch’s day-to-day living in Budapest is further supported by the fact that the „enfant terrible” of Fidesz was the president of the party’s Budapest organization (2002-2004), member of the Budapest City Council (fraction leader of Fidesz-KDNP between 2002-2003) and member of the local council in Budapest’s 7th district (2006-2008). This last position he managed to lose rather embarrassingly, he did not to turn up at any of the local council meetings for one full year, yet he collected his monthly salary for the job. By the way, the EUR 220 sum (roughly HUF 60,000) collected at every single Brussels trip would be enough for roughly eight journeys between Budapest and Hódmezővásárhely, calculated by using the consumption rate of an Audi A6 on this distance and with HUF 400 as the price of one liter of petrol.
