This chick is a Government Minister!
Really! I'm not bullshitting (this time!)
It's fucking ITALY of course! Where else!!!
The mad country run by the mad and corrupt Silvio Berlusconi!
Maria Rosaria Carfagna (born 18 December 1975) is an Italian politician and former showgirl. After obtaining a degree in law, Carfagna worked for several years on Italian television shows and as a model.
She later entered politics and was elected to the Chamber of Deputies for Forza Italia party in 2006.
On 8 May 2008, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appointed her Minister for Equal Opportunity, a move that received international attention due to her special background and her appearance.
Carfagna has been called "the most beautiful minister in the world".
Of course she had worked in television, for the company Mediaset, owned by Silvio Berlusconi! Interesting!
Yap, from 2000 to 2006 she participated as a showgirl in the television show La domenica del villaggio ("Sunday in the Village") with Davide Mengacci. In 2006 she led the programme Piazza grande ("Great Piazza") together with Giancarlo Magalli. Carfagna has also been part of the television programs I cervelloni, Vota la voce and Domenica In.
Interestingly too, in January 2007, Carfagna was at the center of a controversy that received international attention. On the evening of the Telegatto award show, Berlusconi said about Carfagna that "If I was not already married I would have married her immediately".
The comment caused Berlusconi's wife, Veronica Lario, to demand an apology through a national newspaper, something which she also received. Carfagna herself has later described the comment as "gallant and harmless," and said that she did not quite understand Lario's reaction.
Interestingly again, following public discussions on some yet unpublished wiretapping of Berlusconi's private phone conversations, Carfagna has been widely speculated to be involved in a secret affair with the premier, implying also the widespread use of oral sex or fellatio.
Ok ... you don't have to be a rocket scientist to work out what's going on there!
But I am a rocket scientist, so that comment makes no sense in this case!
And of course, despite being a former showgirl, and in the 'proud' tradition of Italian fascism, she's a right wing bitch!
She opposes certain gay rights, and says that matrimonial rights should be tied to reproduction!
And again, despite being a former showgirl (and fuck knows what else!) just this month, Carfagna introduced a new law making street prostitution a crime, with fines for both clients and prostitutes.
Does she think hookers work for fun, that they're nymphomaniacs or something? The answer is not to criminalise prostitution but, like Holland, legalise it so that it can be managed properly, so that the girls can be properly protected (from disease and from parasitical scumbags) and so that the Government can earn taxes.
Criminalisation has never stopped the oldest profession in the world! It's only driven it underground and deeper and deeper into the control of pimps and gangsters!
The bill was her first major initiative as a minister. She said that at present in Italy, "as in the great majority of Western countries", brothels and the exploitation of prostitutes by pimps were illegal but prostitution as such was not. She described street prostitution as a "shameful phenomenon".
Carfagna was criticized by prostitutes' representatives and other charities for introducing the bill. However, some Catholic charities praised her for having the courage to "take on prostitution as a serious social evil".
So this is a a former showgirl who's posed nude loads of times bringing in draconian right-wing laws against prostitution? Yap!!
Proving once and for all that topless models should never be appointed ministers for equal opportunities, Italian babe Mara Carfagna has refused to support a gay pride parade, because, as she says, "gay prides are pointless."
"Homosexuality is no longer a problem, at least not the way the organizers of these demonstrations would have us believe," she said.
Gay rights advocates point out that for gays, gay pride parades are like gay Christmas and gay Halloween all wrapped into one big gay holiday. They also point out that 14 gays have been murdered in Italy in the past two years. Gay-murder advocates point out that the stupid queers deserved it and that they don't want they their streets clogged with glitter anyway. Mara Carfagna's nipples meanwhile, simply point out.
