Mexico: The boob tube UPDATED with VIDEO

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

There’s Obama’s Julia, and then there’s Mexican Julia:

The Mexican presidential candidates had a televised debate, and to make the proceedings more interesting (at least to the male audience), and Julia Orayen, the girl who handed out the urn filled with bits of paper determining the order that candidates would speak wore this:

Alfredo Figueroa, director of the Federal Electoral Institute responsible for organizing the debate, blamed the incident on a production associate hired by the institute to help with the debate. The institute later issued an apology to Mexican citizens and the candidates for the woman’s dress.

Figueroa told MVS radio that he had requested an aide in “sober dress.”

Interviewed by the Cadena Tres TV network, Orayen said the production team gave her instructions to wear a long, white dress, but she picked it up from her own closet.

Obviously, “sober dress” means different things to different people.

She’s been declared “winner of the debate“.

UPDATE,
Let’s go to the video!

A tale of two Julias!
