The octogenarian governor of a souther India state resigned over the weekend after a local news station aired a video of him in bed with three women.
Governor Narain Dutt Tiwari handed in a letter of resignation citing health problems, but the video leak seems to have caused increasing pressure on the politician to step down.
Tiwari’s office has stated that the tape is made up, and not a true depiction of reality.
ABN Andhra Jyoti News reported that the three women of the video were brought to the governor by another woman who had been promised a mining lease in return for sexual favors. When the governor didn’t uphold his end of the bargain, the woman executed a “sting operation” to expose the wayward politician.
