Bush meets with Polish pol embroiled in ‘waitergate’
WARSAW, Poland — On his European trip, Jeb Bush has already met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but his most interesting meeting may be with the Radoslaw Sikorski, who resigned his speakership atop the Polish parliament Wednesday, one year after he compared Poland’s subservience to the U.S. to providing oral sex.
Specific details were not immediately available Thursday morning on the conversation between Bush and Sikorski. But a clandestine eavesdropping scandal, which has claimed resignations from multiple leaders from Poland’s ruling party, has provided plenty of fodder.
“Waitergate” captured Sikorski, who was foreign minister at the time, dubbing Poland’s relationship with the U.S. “worthless”, calling British Prime Minister David Cameron “incompetent” and making other nasty remarks over high-priced meals, according to the Washington Post.
Who exactly placed the hidden microphones remains a key question in the scandal.
