New Sex Tape Surfaces In Moldova

Will tit-for-tat sex tapes be the level of discourse in the upcoming Moldovan parliamentary elections?

Last week, we reported how Romania's consul to Chisinau, Ion Nuica, resigned after the media published a video of him having sex allegedly with a consulate employee.

Now, Veaceslav Iordan, the Moldovan Communist Party's unsuccessful candidate for Chisinau mayor in June 2007, was taped having sex with two young women. The footage was posted on the site of an Internet TV station, Jurnal TV, on July 20, but was later withdrawn.
