I thought he brought his office into disrepute ages ago

London Mayor "Red" Ken Livingstone guilty of bringing his office into disrepute for comparing a journalist to a Nazi concentration camp guard.
"His treatment of the journalist was unnecessarily insensitive and offensive," said David Laverick, chairman of the disciplinary panel sitting in central London.

"He persisted with a line of comment likening the journalist's job to a concentration camp guard despite being told that the journalist was Jewish and found it offensive to be asked if he was a German war criminal."
