Uruguay minister posts shower picture on Facebook
Uruguay's interior minister Daisy Tourne posted a picture of herself on her Facebook page, leading opposition leaders to brand her an exhibitionist.
She posted it with the caption 'there's nothing more natural than a woman in the shower', but oppositon leaders took their criticism to the newspapers.
"I think it's in very bad taste that the minister exposes herself so intimately," former Vice President Luis Hierro Lopez told El Pais. "Ministers have to be more austere, modest — above all the Minister of the Interior," who commands the police force.
Politician Jose Amorin called the photo "frivolous."
Ms Tourne, 57, responded on her page on the popular social networking site, saying the photo was not made available publicly or intended to be erotic. She said it was taken in a shower used to rinse off sand after a visit to the beach, El Pais said.
