    The Argentina Supreme Court re-elected minister Ricardo Lorenzetti as president--eight months before his current term expires.
    In the minutes of the meeting where the re-election was decided, minister Carlos Fayt is mentioned as “present” and also as making a motion together with another minister to propose the Court's vice-president.
    Later, it was revealed that Fayt had not been present in the meeting, but that all the paperwork was brought to his house to be signed.
    Those are enough irregularities that put the Supreme Court in bad light.
    Those who are worried about “corruption” in Argentina should perhaps be worried about this latest incident.

    Justices should resign and allow the appointment of a court that the rotting roadkillians are so deserving of.

    Minister Carlos Fayt was expected Tuesday but did not show up at the Court's customary meeting. The opposition accuses the government of attacking a Supreme Court minister without reason. On the other hand, it reeks of political expediency to let the top court of the country to function with potentially impaired members. What kind of pressures may the 97-year-old be undergoing to stay?

    I just LOVE the three photo's:

    1) The slapper getting ready for the first blow job of the day to seal some influence: I bet TMBOA is so pleased;
    2) The brains of the outfit, getting his two fingers up to wave to:
    3) Bogbrush or Anibal the cannibal in need of a good haicut and a trimming to his 'brush', preferably with a brush cutter, 4 stroke IC type.

    Respect to the photo editor at MP! :o)
