Billionaire octogenarian Frank Stronach tries to win over Austrian voters by showing off his body

A month away from the general election in his native Austria, auto-parts billionaire turned political leader Frank Stronach is doing everything he can to curry favour with voters—including showing some skin. The 80-year-old doffed his shirt during a recent campaign interview at his private lake, telling reporters, “I don’t need to be ashamed of my body.” The move evidently worried rival Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache, who immediately took to Facebook to post his own flesh-baring pic. We’re still not clear why either candidate thinks stripping down will sway voters. Then again, another famous Austrian did make the leap from shirtless beefcake to Governor of California.
