Mexican Mayor caught on camera lifting woman’s skirt at his birthday party
Nirapad News : A mayor has come under fire after he lifted up a young woman’s skirt in public and then apologised by sending irons and cookers to complaining women.
Mexican mayor Hilario Ramírez Villanueva is in hot water after this video emerged that shows the moment he whipped up the skirt of a young woman he was dancing with.
The footage was captured during his lavish £650,000 44th birthday party on Mexico’s pacific coast two weeks ago and uploaded to YouTube.
Villanueva, who is the mayor of San Blas, is seen dancing closely with the young woman and throwing his hands in the air.
He then appears to put his hands on the woman’s dress at which point he quickly pulls the pink clothing up to reveal her white underwear.
Locals estimated there were around 50,000 revellers at the party, but the mayor came in for sever criticism after the video of his antics emerged.
Women’s groups instantly bombarded the moustached mayor with complaints but Villanueva appeared to bungle his apology after he allegedly sent them irons, cookers and refrigerators as a way of saying sorry.
Speaking on Mexican TV later, the mayor said: “When one is happy, and the women are happy, one doesn’t calculate. It’s not an excuse, but I do ask for forgiveness from my friend Rosita.”
Villanueva is no stranger to controversy, having jokingly confessed to pilfering “a little bit” of public funds in 2014.
However, he later called that incident nothing more than a party joke: “If I were a thief, I wouldn’t have been elected mayor twice,” he said.
