Thai PM Sues Cartoonist for Allegedly Comparing Her to a Prostitute

That's all politicians are though, pimps and prostitutes

A lawyer for Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has filed a defamation suit against an influential cartoonist alleging he compared the premier to a prostitute in a facebook post, police said Friday.

Chai Rachawat, a cartoonist for a prominent daily newspaper, posted pictures of Yingluck on Tuesday accompanied by the words "… a prostitute is not an evil person, the hooker only sells body. But an evil woman sells the nation".

His post apparently took aim at the premier's appearance at a democracy forum a day earlier in Mongolia where she gave an unusually fiery speech condemning the 2006 overthrow of her brother Thaksin in an army coup.
