The Cigar Room Incident

It's only a filler but it has become one of the top read stories. In newspaper jargon, a filler is a short story needed to fill up a space in a page.
The story "Ex-Cabinet minister under probe" (The Star, April 23) said that a former Cabinet Minister was under investigation for allegedly outraging the modesty of a promoter at a five-star hotel in the city.
He allegedly fondled the 32-year-old woman last Thursday at the cigar room of a hotel. Police have recorded a statement from the woman and are expected to get a statement from the senior politician.
Although the report was confirmed by KL CID chief Ku Chin Wah, it is still essentially an allegation.
But it's politically bad for the cigar-chomping politician, who has just returned from London. He has declined to respond to the allegation, where the woman claimed her buttocks were grabbed by the man. There were witnesses, it seemed.
KL is a small place and while he wasn't name by the media, his identity is already known among the political and media circles.

this leaves me to wonder whether a study should be done on cigar smoke and effects on a person's behaviour. as it is, the cigar chomper is already known for his "ways". on a serious note, let's hope the police will do a thorough investigation and not just give malaysians lip service.

Datuk Wong,

This kind of gatal behaviour is quite normal among politikus lah.

Politicians, as Henry Kissinger said once, believe that power is the ultimate aphrodiasiac.

These buggers smoke cigars because they think its more macho.

Never mind that the cigars they puff away are usually longer than their sausages.

Such politicians mana ada class? Only good at making secong or third-hand jokes and raba-raba women who they knwo won't fight back.

Dulu, bila ada power as menteri, okay lah. Sekarang habuk pun tak ada, should keep the filthy hands to themselves lah.

By the way, do you know any horny guy with a scraggy janggut kah?
