WOW. I think he didn't intent at the beginning when his hand was at her waist line. But then he went "oh, why not, since my hand is already here". You can tell he did it by how he swiped his hand across her butt.
I believe Max thought it was WA until Fred De Graaf leaned his face forward, then Max realized it wasn't her husband.
I don't know if WA knew or not, it is hard tell with a cut footage.
But I'm surprised the bodyguard didn't push the Mayor's hand away.
Also, in a different youtube video. A comment said this: Comment from mayor F. de Graaf himself translated into English: "It's not something I can recall and totally not something that I would do on purpose. I know very well that this is not appropriate." And "There could be a centimeter in between

I laughed so loud upon reading it. I can't read Dutch, so can any Dutch Dishers tell me if the mayor really said "1 cm"?
Though colloquially it means 'just a wee bit' - obviously he is not the kind of man that thinks his sluglet is really 7 inches of pure bliss
That said, the Dutch aren't puritans, and I really think this is an accidental but classic case of Honni soit qui mal y pense
And no, the DRF would never issue any statement about this IMO.
