German far-right party's No. 2 quits in scandal over phallic cake, porn actress

The No. 2 official in Germany's biggest far-right party has quit his post after being criticized for attending a birthday celebration featuring a penis-shaped cake.

German media previously reported that Peter Marx also faced criticism in far-right circles for his contacts to a party supporter who fell out of favor after she allegedly appeared in a pornographic film with a black man.

The National Democratic Party confirmed Monday that Marx resigned as general-secretary Sunday because of the "ongoing public debate about him."

The party is aiming to gain its first seat in the European Parliament next month after Germany's constitutional court nixed a requirement that parties must get at least 3 percent of the vote.

Germany's 16 states are seeking to ban the party for its racist ideology.
