Would You Vote For An Ex-prostitute?

I read this story about a woman who was a prostitute and is now one of the contestants running for the elections in Turkey and I wondered how circumstances can change at different times. If this happened in Nigeria, would you vote for her

"It's been more than a decade since she paid off the $12,000 price she was sold for. Now, in an effort to draw attention to the plight of Turkey's 3,000 state-registered prostitutes, she's running as an independent candidate in parliamentary elections on July 22"

Exactly my point enumerated above @ angel101.

But of course where do we draw that line and on what moral ground do we do that, when we are known to also embrace EX- ARMED ROBBERS, EX- 19men, EX- DICTATORS, and as we see here EX-PROSTITUTES.

Imagine this lady trying to assert governance over the price for ashewo in that country.

Ashewo dey different from "phoney repentant thieves" now. As long as her whoring days are over, i don't think her personal or public "morality" (sexual that is) comes into play.

Besides, the lady in this story was forced into prostitution. Only a dog would use that against her.

Why not? It's just proof that she's exposed and has an experience in both worlds. And i'll re-emphasize the 'EX'. The fact that she was doesn't mean she still is. it just simply means she knows when she's done something wrong and can make a correction or change!

While i'm in support of leadership based on gender equity, I wouldn't vote for someone who could easily be bought or sold for a cheap price amongst other things- receive Bottom slaps due to this from various men.  

Certainly not my type of leader!!!

I surely would God knows that alot of the people ruling us right now are worse than her and what is worse they assult our sensibilities each day with exultations for us to pray to God for a turn around in the fortunes of the country
