Iranian Woman Told She Is Too Pretty To Hold Office

Posted: Updated:

An Iranian election committee will not let a politician take office because of the way she looks.

The 27-year-old woman is not allowed to serve as a city council member,  even though she won the election, because she is too pretty.    

One senior official was quoted as saying, "We don't want a catwalk model on the council."  

The board also complained about her campaign, saying she did not follow Islamic code because she included pictures of herself on posters.
