Constitutional Expert: Deputy Minister Damaged Dutch Position with Remarks about McCain

Jan Vis, a constitutional expert, says that Deputy Minister Jet Bussemaker (Labor) has damaged the Dutch reputation by remarking on a television program that, if John McCain would be elected as President of the United States, she would consider it a disaster. She said that she was speaking in a personal capacity. Vis says that governments speak with one mouth and members of the government should not express an opinion about candidates for positions in other countries.
