Political scandals

Few time ago we talked about football players’ scandals in the article footballers and escorts.

The political scandals are also a well-known phenomenon and very common in the media. Before we read the most known ones, some names of those politics comes to our mind who have ended as victims of an scandal.

In this case, neither men nor women are saved.

We will begin with Karina Bolaños, who was the Vice Minister of “Juventud” in Costa Rica. Karina was caught by the Media when they found a video of her on Internet.

In this video she is shown in her underwear and insinuating to her presumptive lover.

When she realized they had found that video, Bolaños decided to defend herself on a Colombian radio station. According to her, she assured she was a victim of fraud and extortion. She finally got destitute from her position.

One of the most shocking scandals in Spain has been the case of Olvido Hormigos, the socialist councilor from the city hall of Yébenes, Toledo.

In that case, a video was again discovered on Internet. This video was about an erotic domestic video that was filtered to the social networks.

The accusations of who filtered that video were between the mayoralty and a closed friend of hers.

Olvido Hormigos ended up resigning her position.

One of the most famous cases that will probably form part of the political scandals’ history is the one that happened between Mónica Lewinsky y Bill Clinton.

Lewinsky was hired as an intern in the White House in 1995. She did no doubt to publish her love relationship with the actual president of the United States of that year, who was Bill Clinton. Once the love story was known the scandal was so big that it put in danger his position as president of the U.S.A and it also put in danger his own marriage. However, the love affair between them continued. High sexual content calls between them were filtered. Even a blue dress was found in Clinton’s office; it had some stains that looked like semen stains. Clinton finally was accused to deny all this fact to the American population.

From there nowadays we can find a lot of criticisms about the image of Bill Clinton, which is for example reflected in various episodes of The Simpons.

Another famous politician that made this type of scandal was the Italian Silvio Berlusconi. When this name is mentioned or readed a lot of people surely remember the image of Berlusconi doing parties with escorts.

The parties and sexual excesses were already well-known but what really impacted to the Media was the accusation that Silvio was introducing underage girls to the prostitution. One of these supposed girl that Berlusconi hired told with detail all that II Cavaliere did in the Arcore Ville. The same girl told them that once she had to disguise herself as Obama and other girls wore other customs.

Anthony Weiner was the congressman Democrat from U.S.A that was also involved in another sexual scandal. In that case, twitter became a nightmare to him.

One of his followers in Twitter was fooling around with the Democar and he send her photos of him naked. She did not wait to publish and upload them in the same network. Wiener had to renounce his position when he realized about his mistake, he recognized to do a bad use of Twitter

In this time of crisis that we have been dragging, and with the great fall that the tax collection has suffered, which has caused debates on the sustainability of our pension system and its reform, the financing deficit of the autonomous communities and municipalities have derived in an asphyxiating fiscal pressure. Thus, the debate on the legalization of prostitution.

To illustrate the situation better, we will see the numbers that the prostitution sector manages. The estimated amount of this is 3.500 million euros per year, which represents 0.35% of the national GDP. To give you an idea, this supposes a volume similar to the footwear industry in Spain or to the contribution of the city of Malaga.

Have in mind that in Spain there are about 100,000 escorts, although only 20% of these escorts girls are Spanish. It is estimated that 39% of Spaniards have paid for having sex ever, with an average annual expenditure of 1,530 euros. That is, we spend much more on sex than on car insurance, buying fruit or vegetables. The 66% of the escorts girls practice in a brothel, to compare with the remaining 33%, that does it in the street.

To end with this battery of data, only 5% are luxury escorts. Now is when the question arises, should we regulate the sector? This is one of the largest money movements in the country, which could contribute to the desired increase in tax collection.

Why is it legal to sell tobacco if it generates thousands of deaths and illnesses a year, spending millions of euros on campaigns to stop smoking and generates a huge expenditure on public health? The tax reason seems enough to allow it to be legal to smoke. Now we come to see, briefly, the Dutch model, where prostitution was legalized in the year 2000 and already have extensive experience.

In the Netherlands, the sector moves the 2,500 million euros, that is to say to 0.4% of the GDP, surpassing to the mythical Dutch cheese sector. The legalization of prostitution was coming at the same time than laws against sexual abuse and protection of minors. Prostitution has been banned on the streets and can only be done in rooms equipped for this purpose, each escort girl has to pay for private health insurance, like any Dutch worker. As taxes are paid for this activity, the system is controlled through a licensing system, and final regulation is given to the cities. At the sametime than this legalization, any means of sexual exploitation is considered an offense punishable by imprisonment and the legal age for engaging in prostitution was raised from 18 to 21.

Clubs, escorts girls' agencies, X rooms, couples bars, or prostitution in private homes are allowed and regulated by a licensing system, and only in 13 Dutch cities are the famous showcases allowed, such as the famous of the Red Light district of Amsterdam.

Any companion has the right for social and health care and even to participate in a program of social reintegration for those who want to abandon prostitution, and municipalities are obliged to guarantee these rights as issuers of the corresponding licenses.

With all these data and comparing the two models, you can see the similarity of figures between countries, but while in Holland they contribute as another sector and are protected by law, having the right to social benefits and pensions, in Spain, escorts and prostitutes are left in the helplessness and at the mercy of mafias and sexual exploiters.

For all this, it would be useful to reflect deeply on whether the legalization of the sector is more convenient for all. .
