Masazumi Gotoda, 41, a member of the lower house for the Liberal Democratic Party and husband of actress Maki Mizuno, 41, has allegedly been spotted kissing and fondling a hostess in an expensive Tokyo bar. The news was broken by gossip magazine Friday in the issue released today.
According to the magazine, the girl in question was seen arriving to work with Gotoda on May 23, and then heading to a bar in Roppongi with him around five hours later. The pair were then seen entering a toilet stall together and did not emerge for over 20 minutes, the magazine says.
The couple are then alleged to have headed to a lodge in Akasaka for members of the lower house of the Diet on the morning of May 24 at around 4 a.m. Witnesses say the girl subsequently left the lodging house roughly 4 hours later, at around 8 a.m.
The public relations department of the House of Representatives told the press that use of the lodges is restricted to members of the lower house and their families.© Japan Today
