Will a gold toilet seat oust the President of Turkey?

ISTANBUL — Amid harsh criticism, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to resign his office if the opposition can find a golden toilet seat in his lavish palace.

As recently reported in the Toronto Sun, accusations have been brought forward by Kemal Kilicdaroglu of the Republican People's Party:

"Gentlemen in Ankara, palaces have been built for you, planes bought, Mercedes cars purchased ... golden seats have been bought, that's how you use the toilet," Kilicdaroglu said at a rally in the Aegean city of Izmir on Saturday.

Erdogan, who won election last August, has challenged Kilicdaroglu to prove his accusations.
