A scandal-plagued former German Jewish leader has a new job. On Wednesday, Michel Friedman announced at the Frankfurt Book Fair that he will head the political section of the Berlin-based Aufbau publishing company. Friedman, whose appearance at the fair was his first in public since resigning in July as vice president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany following charges of cocaine use and involvement with prostitutes, told reporters he was “happier than ever.”
