Transsexual prostitute in Italian
political sex scandal burns to death

'Brenda', a transsexual prostitute linked to a sex and drugs scandal which brought down the prominent Italian politician Piero Marrazzo, has been found burned to death in her apartment.

The Telegraph

Police are investigating what may have started the fire which engulfed the Brazilian prostitute, known only as Brenda.

The blaze broke out in the early hours of Friday morning and fire crews who rushed to the basement flat in Rome found only the charred remains of the sex worker.

Magistrates were treating the death as murder, according to court sources quoted by the Italian media.

"Brenda" was friends with another Brazilian transsexual, known as Natalie, who was filmed allegedly having sex and taking drugs with Piero Marrazzo, the governor of Lazio province, which encompasses Rome and its surrounding region.

The film was secretly recorded and obtained by four police officers who are being investigated for allegedly trying to blackmail Mr Marrazzo.

The centre-Left politician initially denied any involvement in the scandal when it broke last month, but days later was forced to resign after admitting that he had been a client of the prostitutes and took cocaine with them.

"Brenda" testified to investigators in the affair that she had met Mr Marrazzi on two occasions.

A former journalist with the state broadcaster RAI, Mr Marrazzi was elected governor in 2005.

A lawyer for Mr Marrazzo said the death was "really worrying news".

"We must find out what's behind it," said Luca Petrucci.

Brazil is famous for self igniting transsexuals and they are often referred to as cross dressing cigarette lighters or "Atravessar Zippos". During the long harsh Brazilian winters they are frequently invited to stay as overnight guests in case the furnace breaks down. They are always indispensible at BBQ's.

As that archeologist said, how did the Romans become the Italians?

Evidently, the Italians did not pass Campaign Finance Reform. This would stop all this corruption, you know.

Gee, political corruption at its worst. This sounds like they could make a movie from all this drama. Love, lies, murder, and a dirty politician all rolled up into one, Oh yeah.
