Samoobrona lawmaker (law breaker) Renata Beger, has been convicted of falsifying her electoral sponsorship list.
She made up 1700 names out of thin air, apparently. The signatures were hand written, so she must have been up all night, poor love.
She has received a two year suspended sentence for her trouble.
All rather embarrassing for her party, Samoobrona, which has led the crusade against political corruption.
Renata first came to attention when she was on the special parliamentary commission looking into the ‘Rywingate affair’, a tale of high corruption during the previous SLD government.
In an interview to a woman’s magazine at the time, she confessed to finding her boss, Adnrzej Lepper a bit sexy (?) but also admitting that she was a very amorous person herself, saying that she had ‘kurwiki in her eyes’ – an extraordinary expression which could be translated as ‘the look of a prostitute in her eyes’.
But dear Renata has inspired this blog to start its own political party – the Polish Pro Corruption Party (PPCP). Renata can be our president (if she promises not to give me any of that kurwiki nonsense!).
The PPCP will stand in the next Euro elections. We think Brussels is not corrupt enough and could learn a few tricks from Poland.
PPCP doesn’t mind if we haven’t got any support as we’ll just make up our signatures anyway.
We welcome backhanders and back scratching. Our accountant will bribe himself to falsify the accounts.
Our election slogan will be: VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN!!!
