Christian Lindner’s wedding was a big topic in political circles at the weekend. Colleagues from all parties diligently congratulated the finance minister. Too bad that some congratulations and one or the other offer went to the wrong Christian Lindner.

In addition to harsh criticism of Christian Lindner’s multi-day Sylt wedding with Franca Lehfeldt, there were of course many people who congratulated the Federal Minister of Finance and his wife on the marriage. Among them were many politicians who expressed their congratulations via Twitter. But some of these messages apparently ended up with the wrong Christian Lindner.

Namely with a man named Christian Lindner, chief digital reporter at the Nordsee-Zeitung. The journalist seems very amused by the mix-up. He tweeted on Sunday: “Thank you for the congratulations on my supposed marriage, and also for inviting politicians from other parties to second homes. Think about it now: clear up the error, or just accept the offer?”

Unfortunately, Lindner did not reveal which politicians accidentally sent wrongly addressed congratulations. What might have contributed to the funny mix-up: The journalist is not only called Christian Lindner, but also has a verified blue tick on Twitter.

Some of the 30,000 followers also seem to be very amused. They think: Christian Lindner should accept the invitation and see what happens when the “wrong” Lindner stands in front of all the politicians.

The Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner and the journalist Franca Lehfeldt had a veritable wedding marathon on Sylt last weekend. On Thursday (July 7th) the couple got married in a civil ceremony in the “Sölring-Museum”. On Friday the bachelorette party followed with around 140 guests and on Saturday afternoon (July 9th) Lindner and Lehfeldt said yes again. This time in the Church of St. Severin in Keitum.
