In America, our politicians are thoroughly investigated and every inch of their background is combed through for possibly embarrassing details that the press can use to discredit them. In Europe, leaders of nations can hire women whose boobs are all over the Internet and no one will care.

At least that’s the case in Slovakia. Prime Minster Robert Fico hired a former topless model, Maria Troskova, to be his new personal assistant. In 2007 Troskova competed in the Miss Universe pageant and two years later appeared on the cover of the magazine Brejk sans shirt.

Before anyone begins accusing Prime Minister Fico of trying to engage in any Clinton-like shenanigans, Troskova earned a college degree in management, so she’s probably qualified to assist the PM with any of his needs. One of her college friends is quoted by Lad Bible as saying the following about her:

She was always very popular with the boys but never slept around. She seemed more interested in getting good grades. The modeling was just for some extra cash. I am delighted she has got this job and I am sure she will be excellent at it.

See? She’s clearly got a good head on her shoulders and that’s why Fico hired her.
