A video of the old millionaire rudolph Hernandez having fun in Miami with young women on a yacht, this Friday he overheated the war of leaks two days before the presidential ballot in Colombia, which pits him against left-wing candidate Gustavo Petro. The fuse of the scandal was not so much the female protagonism but the presence of lobbyists from companies that do business with the Colombian state.

The informative portal Change He published an almost eight-minute video of the 77-year-old tycoon with two of his children, other men and a dozen women, all in bathing suits, dancing and sharing liquor.

The Change text

Cambio accompanied the video with a brief explanatory text, where it assures that a witness assured them that the expenses of the party were covered by the Pfizer laboratory. He also clarified that the pharmaceutical company denied them, although he did not leave them very convinced. This is the text from the website:

“The yacht is worth 4.5 million dollars and renting it for six hours around 5,000 dollars (20 million Colombian pesos). The engineer Rodolfo Hernández was on board, touring the Bay of Biscay, accompanied by a group of at least 11 women young people who danced nonstop before the eyes of the passengers. According to a source consulted by Cambio, the expenses were covered by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, interested in expanding its business in Colombia, and several of its executives were present. However, the company stated that his employees did not meet with Hernández “last week”. The curious thing is that the question never mentioned that the party had occurred last week, since, according to the source of information, it happened on Saturday, October 9, 2021.

Although some brief fragments of the agape were revealed through social networks at the beginning of the month, new videos show that the boat ride was more active than initially seen and that it continues without explaining who paid for the party, what was the interest to entertain Hernández, and if someone paid for the presence of the uninhibited dancers. The engineer Rodolfo Hernández also did not answer the questions about it.”

Reactions to the video

Dressed in his usual long-sleeved shirt, Hernández whispers in the ear of one of the women in one part of the sequence. Later, he approaches to hug another of them, but the woman moves away from her when she notices the camera.

“Painful and very sad. This campaign exposed that we continue to live in a deeply macho country, which sees women as sexual objects (…) As a woman, the mother of a girl and a politician, my soul hurts,” launched the MP-elect Katherine Miranda, who supports Petro.

Faced with the avalanche of memes, ridicule and criticism, Hernández responded on Twitter: “They think it’s bad that I’m on vacation in Miami in 2021, but they don’t think it’s bad that Petro (…) with tremendous drunkenness gets on the platforms to speak to the voters.

The candidate, who entered this campaign as an “outsider” with no party or ideology, alluded to an episode in which his rival gave a drunken speech, which later forced him to apologize to his electorate.

The magazine Semana, which published the recordings of Petro’s campaign last week, assured that they received them from an anonymous source.

Cambio also claims to have obtained the material from a confidential source who identified one of the attendees as a senior executive of the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, which the company denies.
