Christian presented his book at a press conference. He talked himself up as a victim of an alliance between press and justice. He said that when the press brought to light the services of his friends bit by bit prosecution was all to eager to jump on any of those allegations. In his presentation he insisted that his resignation had been a mayor mistake and ich wäre auch heute noch der Richtige in dem Amt (today I would still be the right man in office). Is there anybody out there who likes to buy Wulff's book?
In his case the famous citation from Friedrich Schiller's drama Die Räuber must be corrupted: Dem Manne kann nicht mehr geholfen werden (This man can not be helped).
