AN ARGENTINE politican has resigned after he was caught kissing and fondling his girlfriend’s boob during a parliamentary Zoom meeting on the coronavirus.
Fellow MPs looked on in horror as Juan Emilio Ameri, 47, pulled down his lover’s top and plopped a big kiss onto her right breast.
Argentina’s escalating coronavirus crisis was far from Mr Ameri’s mind as a shocking clip shows him pull his lover onto his lap and smooch her chest – while other MPs listen intently to the debate.
House president Sergio Massa interrupted the session to report the “serious offence” – and suspended the lawmaker for 180 days.
The bewildered speaker said: “We are going to listen to the explanation, but we cannot allow this.”
In a tearful interview with Todo Noticias, a disgraced Ameri confirmed he had resigned from his post after the incident and spoke of his shame.
He said: “It was serious, really. I take responsibility.
“I’m very ashamed.”
Ameri said that he thought his camera was off during the steamy session – but admitted he couldn’t keep his hands off his new lover after her boob job.
He continued: “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 ten days ago to have them put in.”
Bursting into tears on live television, he added: “It was a moment of intimacy with my partner that leaked.
“It was serious, really, I take charge and I am very ashamed. I am very distressed by what is happening.”
Mr Ameri is a senator in the northwest Salta Province for the ruling Frente de Todos coalition.
According to local media, the politician had become estranged from ex-wife Alejanda Escudero, who he has three daughters with.
Cronica identified the woman in the clip as Celeste Burgos – one of his political advisers.
Furious MPs have since called for Mr Ameri’s expulsion from the house after the bust up.
Opposition senator Luis Juez told Argentine media: “There is no explanation for such obscene, impudent, dishonourable conduct.”
