A sex video showing six lawmakers of Turkey’s Nationalist Party in compromising positions, some showing them having sex, was released on internet causing them to resign in embarrassment, Huffpost World said.

One of the lawmakers, Deniz Bolukbasi, said he was resigning to spare his party damages the released videos might have caused.

Earlier, four colleagues were caught in similar scandal, in a house believed to be used by party members for extramarital affairs.

The four also resigned.

This consistent shameful display could bring down popular opposition support handing even more power to the ruling party of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The ruling party was aiming for an overwhelming majority in the seat of government to enable them to rewrite Turkey’s constitution.
