Lawmaker resigns after kissing girlfriend’s breast in virtual session

A married Argentinian MP has resigned after cavorting with his girlfriend during a virtual session of congress — pulling down her top to kiss her newly enhanced breast.

Juan Emilio Ameri, 47, shocked fellow lawmakers by sitting through parts of the on-camera session being played on a giant screen in parliament with a woman on his lap, snuggling her as he pulled her close.

In bawdy scenes that quickly went viral, he then stared at her breasts — and pulled down the right side of her vest to expose, and kiss, one.

House president Sergio Massa interrupted the session to report “a serious offense,” and the disgraced lawmaker from the northeastern province of Salta was immediately suspended for 180 days.

Ameri later told Todo Noticias (TN) in a tearful interview that he had resigned.

“It was serious, really. I take responsibility. I’m very ashamed,” he told TN.

The politician claimed he thought he was off-camera because his internet had gone down — and admitted he could not keep his hands off his girlfriend because she had recently had a boob job.

“I saw that my partner came out of the bathroom and I asked how she was, due to the operation,” he told TN. “At that moment she sat with me and I kissed her on the breast without realizing that the connection had returned.”

“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,” he told TN, breaking into tears.

Local reports said he was estranged from his wife, and others identified the girlfriend in the video as Celeste Burgos, one of his advisers.

“I apologize to the citizens, to my family, to my partner, for all this situation,” the disgraced politician told TN.

“I want to apologize to my mother, my sisters, my daughters, with whom I have not yet spoken,” he said.
