Brasilia, May 29: A Brazilian legislator was watching a pornographic video on his mobile phone during a lower house session, said TV channel SBT, which recorded and distributed images of his activity.

The legislator, João Rodrigues, of the ruling Social Democratic Party, appears to be watching a video on his phone during Wednesday's session, hidden under his desk, and at times even appears to share it with other legislators who approach his seat.

SBT also released an image on Thursday of what it recorded from his mobile screen, allegedly of women "in obscene positions, very obscene".

At the time of the incident, the Chamber of Deputies was in full session debating and voting on electoral reform.

Rodrigues, on Facebook, said he received the video through a group conversation on Whatsapp and was on the verge of deleting it.

"I participate in nearly a hundred groups on WhatsApp and during the day I search and separate the wheat from the chaff. What interests me I keep or forward and what doesn't interest me, I delete. It was just what I was doing, erasing the rubbish," he explained.

The legislator said that not only did he erase the video, but also blocked the sender as the video annoyed him.

While he was watching the video, Rodrigues had on his desk an invitation to attend a mass at the headquarters of Bishops of Brazil, reported SBT.
