Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yeah, when Kurz took over the people's party he filled all positions he could get his hands on with his henchmen. Obviously the fifty-something loyal party soldiers that missed out on the promotions in favor of barely thirty coke kids weren't thrilled and the party is full of structures that aren't easily accessible from the national leadership. And that's a large part of the Austrian state structure, from civil servants to the judicial system.
Turns out newspaper oligarchs don't like to see textual evidence of them manipulating elections on the TV and no one outside the Kurz orbit was really invested in making it go away.
