A party in the archipelago of Stockholm last Friday got out of hand.

One of the guests were the former minister of finance, Anders Borg. At approximately 11.00 PM, he was exposing his penis and groping other men trying to compare penis sizes. He also called female guests ”sluts” and ”whores”, sources say.

– I don’t know what he drank, but it was a lot, says an anonymous partygoer.

Threatened the host

According to sources, Borg also became aggressive when he was asked to sleep in another house. He then threatened the host of the party – and a woman who tried to calm him down.

Friday morning, Borg himself wrote about the party in a Facebook post. In the post, he tries to apologize to everyone involved.

I was at a party last weekend and had a blackout. I don’t drink more than most people but I have been under a lot of pressure lately”, he writes.

He continues:

I’ve heard that I behaved very inappropriately. I want to sincerely apologize to the other guests. I feel a lot of disappointment and regret my behaviour”.

In an e-mail to Dagens Industri, Borg announces that he’s gonna seek help after the incident.

Anders Borg was minister of finance in Sweden from 2006 to 2014. He is now deputy chairman of the investment corporation Kinnevik, head of a global finance initiative at World Economic Forum and a senior advisor for the bank Citi.
