Just yesterday I was blogging and podcasting about Fernando Lugo’s progeny. Yesterday there were two paternity cases, that of Viviana Carrillo, which he accepted, and the one brought by Benigna Leguizamón.
Well, another day, another baby:
Paraguay’s president caught in triple paternity row:
Former Roman Catholic bishop Fernando Lugo has admitted fathering one child and hasn’t denied the other claims
He swept to power as an agent of renewal but Paraguay’s bishop turned president, Fernando Lugo, now faces a political crisis and ribald jokes over his power of reproduction.
Three women have come forward in the past two weeks claiming to have had children fathered by Lugo while he was a Roman Catholic bishop, raising questions over his credibility and morals.
Whatever questions remain, they are not on his credibility, and definitely not on his morals. A Bishop, cavorting with a poor teenage girl (which was the case with Leguizamón) who works for him, has no morals – no question.
My sources say that the affair with Leguizamón started when she was fifteen years old.
He even impregnated a groupie:
Yesterday, Damiana Moran, a 39-year-old divorcee, said Lugo was the father of her 16-month-old son, Juan Pablo, named after the late pope. The owner of a child day care centre said she campaigned for Lugo in the election and considered him “phenomenal”. She had no plans to file suit against him. “He was my ideal of a man and social-political leader,” she said.
Who else will turn up?
