Entrepreneur Janusz Palikot is head of the Palikot Movement, Poland's first secular political party. Palikot came to power in 2011 on a platform that included legalizing abortion and marijuana and ending state funding for religious education in public schools. In conservative Poland, Palikot has also gained infamy for acts such as brandishing a gun and a sex toy at a press conference on police corruption.
