It is barely eight days into the new year and the world is already enmeshed in one form of scandal or the other.
The latest is that the Interim president of Bolivia Jeanine Anèz has unceremoniously bowed out of office after her driver posted their sex video which went viral.
She only took over in November last year after the resignation of former president Evo Morales.
There was 19 days of civil protests following the disputed election results of October 2019 and the release of the OAS which alleged irregularities in the electoral process and trade unions the military suggested for his resignation.
There are suggestions that the driver was in fact a spy from the other camp and she filmed the action without her knowledge.
