Politician Krisztina Baranyi was recorded saying "stinking trash Jewish investors"

Budapest
- In a voice recording of Krisztina Baranyi, a member of the Two-tailed Dog Party, she has been overheard using the word "Jews" as a swear-word when speaking about the development of the 9th district of Budapest, of which she is an elected Mayor. In the voice recording from an unidentified event, she has was heard talking about "stinking trash Jewish investors". 

Although Baranyi had accepted that the recording is genuine, she denies any wrong-doing and has claimed that her words have been taken out of context. Instead, she had accused other members of the left-wing coalition that governs Budapest's 9th district as being the ones who have used antisemitic undertones. 

In the meantime, the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (MAZSIHISZ) had condemned the mayor for her choice of words. According to them, she has brought the Hungarian public discourse into disrepute.
