(Scroll down for video) A mayor is facing sexual harassment charges after some of his perverted acts were caught on video.
The mayor of a Bolivian city, who is well-known and beloved by many, is in hot water. His string of bizarre behaviors may cost him his job.
Percy Fernandez, mayor of Santa Cruz, faces possible legal action after groping two women and forcefully kissing a third, while the camera was rolling at official events.
Fernandez did not hide his actions. All three incidents took place in public and in front of many onlookers.
In one incident, he was seen placing his hand on the thigh of a television journalist, who sat next to him.
There was a brief struggle as the reporter tried to remove the 75-year-old mayor’s hand from her leg. She finally managed to yank it away and place it on his own thigh.
In another incident, he was seen slapping and grabbing the back of a city councilor, while she was giving a speech.
There was laughter from the horrified crowd, who witnessed the mayor’s behavior. He then took the woman’s hand and kissed it.
In another incident, the mayor was seen forcing a kiss on the lips of a woman, who works as an engineer. The woman was seen trying to get away from Fernandez, but he pulled her closer and forcefully kissed her on the lips.
The woman finally freed herself and seemed to be disgusted by his actions as she repeatedly wiped her lips after the kiss.
Opposition legislator Marcela Revollo Fernandez, has filed a complaint in La Paz, the Bolivian capital, accusing Mayor Fernandez of “sexual harassment, sexual violence, and discrimination.”
“We consider this expression of violence against all Bolivian women, given that the mayor’s actions have occurred before,” Revollo said.
