Potsdam (AP) - Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has sharply reprimanded the AFD, because she uses the former Social Democrat Chancellor Willy Brandt for her election campaign. "Willy Brandt would have had left for right-wing populists only one thing: abysmal contempt," wrote the SPD politician on Twitter. A poster of the party to the state election in Brandenburg on 1 September with the likeness of the former chancellor causes outrage. She uses his photo and his slogan «Dare more democracy». Maas wrote, "If Spalter and Hetzer abuse him today, that's just disgusting."
