According to Reuters, Enrique Pena Nieto said he had two children out of wedlock during his first marriage. In response, the website AshleyMadison.com posted a billboard in Mexico City with his likeness and the words, "Unfaithful to his family. Faithful and committed to his country."

AshleyMadison.com, a site dedicated to helping people make matches to have affairs, launched its service in Mexico last November.

The PRI, the political party that Nieto is affiliated with, is none too pleased with the billboard and wants it taken down.
