  Ole von Beust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carl-Friedrich Arp Freiherr von Beust, generally called Ole von Beust, born April 13, 1955 in Hamburg, Germany, First Mayor of the city-state (Freie und Hansestadt) of Hamburg since 2001.
Beust later declared the dismissal was necessary, because Schill tried to flmail him by threatening to make Beust's homosexuality public.
Beust himself considers his sexual orientation a private matter.

 Ronald Schill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to von Beust, Schill then threatened to make public an alleged love affair between von Beust and judiciary senator Roger Kusch (CDU), which would have resulted in a conflict of interests on von Beust's side.
Roger Kusch publicly admitted to being homosexual soon afterwards; mayor Ole von Beust, however, did not comment further on his sexuality, pointing out that his sexual orientation was a private issue alone.
Three days later, Ole von Beust declared the coalition of CDU, FDP and Schill Party to be terminated and asked the parliament to order new elections.

Beust felt compelled to fire Schill and suddenly claimed—in a remark that reflected badly on his own judgment—that Schill’s “character was not suited” for the post of interior minister.
Apart from the laughable blond tuft of Carl-Friedrich Arp Freiherr von Beust (his full name, which he shortened when he was 18 years old), the CDU proclaimed the three most important messages: “Michel, Alster, Ole” (Michel—after the Hamburg St. Michel church; Alster—after the river running through the centre of Hamburg).
Ole von Beust probably became a politician because his father Achim-Helge Freiherr von Beust was the first president of the Young Union (youth movement of the CDU) in Hamburg, and then from 1954 to 1980 mayor of the suburb of Wandsbek.

Ole von Beust (CDU), Prime Minister (Ministerpräsident) of the city-state Hamburg and Mayor (Bürgermeister) of Germany’s second largest city, said on Tuesday he could no longer rely on a majority in Hamburg’s parliament and the internal struggles of the “Law and Order Party”, one of the coalition parties, threatened the city’s image.
However, 64% would like to see Ole von Beust (CDU) as Hamburg Mayor while only 26% prefer SPD candidate Thomas Mirow, who was minister in the red–green government the people of Hamburg voted out of office only two years ago.
So Ole von Beust can hope for an absolute CDU majority or a CDU/FDP majority as his CDU is 10% ahead of the SPD in a city that had been dominated by the SPD for many decades.

The mess this week began when von Beust moved to fire Schill's deputy Walter Wellinghausen for possible conflict of interest, primarily due to Wellinghausen's moonlighting but in part due to his hiring of his female lover.
According to von Beust, Schill privately threatened that if the mayor didn't back off from firing Wellinghausen, he would make public what he believed to be a sexual relationship between the mayor and Kusch.
Schill immediately held his own press conference in which he said he'd had information that there was a sexual relationship between von Beust and Kusch and that he personally knew them both to be gay, but said that he had never intended to make it public or to attempt extortion.

Therefore, according to Schill, it is obvious that von Beust had allowed private sentiments and personal sympathies to influence him when appointing Kusch for his high office in the City Council.
However, he characterizes Schill’s accusations that he should be the mayor’s “life partner” and that von Beust therefore had mixed official and private as totally wrong, Schill’s “free invention and 100% false”.
If he succeeds in convincing the court that he is innocent, von Beust might become one of the city’s most popular mayors ever.
