Lawmakers caught ogling pinups at work

Guatemala City — Demonstrators on Tuesday called for the resignation of a pair of Guatemalan lawmakers photographed at their bench desks gawking at cellphone images of bikini-clad girls.

Instead of sizing up the merits of a bill, Jose Gandara, aged 67, and Carlos Rafael Fion, aged 59, were snapped at their bench on Thursday evaluating models in tiny swimwear.

By Tuesday, a few dozen masked and mostly young protesters were calling for them to step down.

"Hit the road, you talented lawmakers," chanted the crowd outside the legislature, slamming the duo as representing the "porn delegation" and asking for their resignations.

For the offenders, the issue was not liberal or conservative, just overblown.

"If I have offended anyone, I publicly apologise, but I have not done anything wrong," Gandara told reporters covering the demonstration.

      Knowledge gathered? actually Eric, the human race has regressed and is still trying to get back to where it was at the birth of the modern era. PROOF? it is undeniable that ancient cultures had more knowledge of our world and the planets around us than we have today, with "modern discoveries" confirming "facts" recorded over three thousand years ago. Hell our ancient relatives were aware that the earth was round and the the Sun was the center of OUR universe thousands of years ago. The destruction of the library at Alexandra by the then new christian movement was one of the biggest losses of knowledge modern man has ever faced, that Christianity plunged a progressing culture back into the dark ages is undeniable. that most of the lost knowledge is only now being rediscovered is testament to the undeniable fact that man as a species has not progressed at all in recorded history,l we have ONLY found newer and easier ways to do what has always been done.
