Fines for Adultery

Why is that politicians always try to reinvent the wheel? More importantly, why do they try to reinvent the square wheels that we've managed to forget about?

Married Colombians engaged in passionate extra-curricular activities may soon have to think twice about their philandering ways if a senator's proposed legislation punishing adultery gets the green light.

Sen. Edgar Espindola said he has proposed a law that would impose fines and enforced community service as punishment for adulterers in an effort to protect family values and shield children from broken homes.

Grr. Who is shagging who is no business of the State's. Anyway, it'll never pass, not in a Latin country. All the legislators will knowthat they can thus be blackmailed by their mistresses.
