Dec 11, 2007 Quickie Link: Gay Politician Federley Assaulted in Homophobic Attack
By vanrozenheim

(Sweden) - Centre Party member of parliament Fredrick Federley was the victim of a homophobic attack in central Stockholm on Saturday night. The assault took place at the Klara Grillen hot dog stand on Drottninggatan, where Federley went with two acquaintances after leaving the Pigalle nightclub. But as they approached their destination, six or seven men in their twenties began shouting "here come the fags". "Then they screamed that we were disgusting and a threat to Sweden and that they were going to beat us up," said Federley. Just as he tried to convince his assailants that fighting was a bad idea, he was struck with a punch to the left jaw.
