Father of the nation?

Three women in a month say Paraguay’s new president is their child’s dad

Paraguay’s new president, Fernando Lugo, appears to be taking this whole “father of the nation” thing a little too literally. For the third time in less than a month, a woman has come forward to claim that the former Roman Catholic bishop is daddy to her child. The latest mother, a social activist and director of a child care centre, says that she has information that Lugo may have fathered six children over the years.
