For kissing his partner’s breast during a parliamentary session held by videoconference, an Argentine lawmaker has been suspended.
The scene has since gone viral on social media.
This happened when another MP was making his address on a giant video screen installed in parliament, as other participants are showed in their homes, Juan Emilio Ameri could be seen fondling and kissing the breasts of a woman sitting next to him.
At that moment the lawmaker from the northeastern province of Salta pulled one of the woman’s breasts out of her T-shirt and started kissing it.
The speaker, Sergio Massa initially interrupted the parliamentary session and then suspended it.
“The whole time we have been teleworking these past months we have had several incidents where deputies fell asleep or another hid, but today we had a situation that really overstepped the boundaries of this house,” said Massa.
Ameri, 47, who became confused, tried to apologize, saying that he did not think he was connected to the Internet at that particular moment.
“Here in the centre of the country the connection is very poor. My partner came out of the bathroom, and I asked her how her implants were doing and I kissed them, because she had surgery 10 days ago to have them put in.”
