Mexican politician Francisco Moreno Merino, a member of the Partido Revolucionário Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party), finds himself facing pressure from his own party after making misogynistic comments that said all pretty women become prostitutes. While the PRI, already struggling with some awkward moments in the campaign leading up to this July’s election, is trying to draw more women voters to the party, Merino declared last week that “there is no horse that doesn’t have a bit of mule in him, there are no pretty women who don’t become prostitutes, there is no good man who doesn’t have a bit of uselessness in him.” His comment immediately prompted protest from congresswomen, and now the PRI is trying to distance itself from him and asking him not to run for
re-election Senate. Merino made his comments while allegedly trying to make the point that everybody has their defects. It seems at least one of Merino’s own defects is pretty obvious.
