38 Comments

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.

Yes. They are our "elite" and we should be ashamed of how they treat and abuse the position of aurthority they have. Judt look at the shocking way they're behaving now!! I'm so very happy I don't vote!! Should be embarrassed at these jokes who dare to claim the right to govern, or the sad pathetic shambles they claim is governing.

He does what just about every Japanese salaryman does! If anything, this should make him more appealing to the working man.

Yes, because MOST Japanese are like this just like most Japanese wives are submissive victims. Please.

So I'm guessing we're paying for that lodge? We, the taxpayers? And was his bar bill paid for out of his own pocket, or are we shelling out for his whores also?

I demand a full inquiry, and a specially deep bow from this sinner.

I'm shocked, SHOCKED to learn that LDP politicians perform sordid acts in toilet cubicles.

I have seen these dudes getting carted around in the back of black limos in Akasaka before midnight, butt lit, hooker near... and I actually throw them them the middle finger and say the naughty... they actually wave. I hate J politicians as much as the Yaks...well they are sort of the same thing.

A friend of mine is friendly with Makiさん and introduced me to her a couple of years ago. I have met her many times since and she is one of the nicest people I know. Sad to hear this news.

Another scandal in politician's life as well as regular employee. Taxpayers may consider how to monitor such wrong-doing practices in both business executive ranks and legislature posts. Japan is not exemption compared U.S. lawmakers and politicians.

Sounds like a full-blown stakeout. Documenting their every move from the time the workday started until the girl left the next morning. Somebody REALLY wanted to embarass this politician. Maybe the wife hired a private investigator?

...poor the angel-looking wife..:) I wonder how many more of his infidelity she had kept secret in her heart.

A same ole, cut-and-dry story of Japanese politician's secret by a shameless media groper.

Full-blown stake-outt?

It's what the tabloids do everyday, yo. Different day different guy.

How many affairs has Maki had.

The way of the world...

Politicians and sex scandals just seem to be like hand and glove. It's the same the world over.

I'm shocked, shocked to find that Japanese politicians fondle hostesses!

Women who are victims of infidelity such as Maki-san have to decide whether to grant their partners forgiveness or painfully put an end to their relationship. You have to deal with it or you will have trust problems and just cannot get over it. Girls here are some things you should consider before making a decision to forgive or don't want to be dumped just to be traded in for another girl. Your partner's character and personality. Try to look at his background and if he has the discipline and the will to say no to temptation, then he deserves to be given a chance. Investigate motivation beyond actions because motivation is more important than the act itself. You have to remember that what you heard or seen is not the whole story and you need to investigate before making any decisions. Consider whether you emotionally and sexually satisfied him. Humans are a love hungry species. Our spirits die when we do not feel loved, therefore you need to be inventive and the sex interesting and satisfying. Consider what is at stake such as your life, your persona and your destiny. Only your heart can answer these type of questions. Consider how sincere his sorrow is because there are plenty of reasons to forgive and forget. The most important basis for weighing your partner's effort for winning your forgiveness is how he behaves after the event. If he is willing to wait patiently and to do consistently acts of contrition for a long time without any complaints, then he is really sincere. Hence forgiving infidelity is no small matter and you need to investigate your partner's character, motivation, sincerity of his remorse, and consider what you have at stake.

BurtonErney-"why eat hamburger when you have prime beef at home?" because sometime you want a quick bite, no pun intended.

"why eat hamburger when you have prime beef at home?"

And to keep the analogy going, let's not forget that with hamburger you're never really sure of what exactly it is you're getting.

A toilet stall? What a class act. He sure knows how to treat a girl, doesn't he.

of course not! the wives are too busy with their own flings to worry about lipstick on hubby's collar. infidelity is rampant in Japan. undeniable.

The parents of the "girl" (is she a minor?) must be very proud as well. Imagine the honour of having your daughter done by a parliamentarian in the loo.

I don't know if it more so than our home countries. I just think the stigma is lessened here so people talk about it much more openly. I don't think anyone is shocked at Arnold given his track record with women.

when you marry a high profile person, you need to remember that person has a tremendous ego and sense of entitlement, there are plenty of unassuming humble folk out there, not so exciting, but you wouldn't need to worry about this you can't have your cake and eat it too, but you could have your rice ball......

Novenachama - once a cheater, always one. I find out someone's been "dancing with another partner," then she's out of my life for good. And I agree with tokyotom - not a bit of sympathy for Maki Mizuno. She should have been intelligent enough to realize that politicians are the least trustworthy of them all, but she decided to roll the dice, and they came up snake eyes.

And a word for wives out there, Google "Malaysia obedient wives" and you'll see why guys cheat.

Love the comments more than the article. Maybe a small portion of people still believes in fidelity, fidelity is the exception not the norm.

The wives of politicians knows what they are getting into when they married their husband.

It's strange that the tabloids gossip about politicians who's cheating on who. As long as he is not using tax payers money, this is between him and his wife.

What this guy does in his private life does concern only his wife and him. I don't see how we should interfere with his private life (if I was his wife I would be VERY pissed though).

However, if he took advantage of public facilities (the lodge in Akasaka) for his personal interest, then he should be fined/punished/sued.

Same story, different people. It doesn't matter what country, or who, or anything else for that matter. Why do people get married in the first place... Hopefully marriage and religion becomes extinct in the near future.
