George Weah’s naked politics: constitutional deviants go 4th

The media in Liberia have been working themselves into a self-righteous frenzy after the recent emergence of “naked” video of former Footballer of the Year turned presidential candidate George Weah. The “naked” video is in fact a men’s cologne advert, and full frontal nudity is implied rather than shown; nonetheless the video, only recently rediscovered, is said to pose a serious threat to Weah’s presidential hopes (though if I were him, I’d be more worried about President Sirleaf-Johnson’s alleged links to Muammar Gaddafi).

The best response, however, is from an unnamed spokesperson in Weah’s party, the Congress for Democratic Change, who maintains that the video can only help to make Weah more popular amongst women voters. Besides, he said, the video is no grounds not to elect Weah, for it is “only constitutional deviants who should not be elected”. All other deviants welcome then…
