Dems blush as Krystal Ball sex pics hit the ‘Net

Posted by STARR KESHET

Krystal Ball, a Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia, says she is both "embarrassed" and "angry" that a Republican blogger posted sexually explicit pictures of her on the Internet. Warning: Definitely NSFW.

The images - which were originally uploaded to a blog known as "Virginia Vertucon" - were later posted to a number of other sites, including Black Velvet Bruce Li and Gawker.

"It's sexist and it's wrong, regardless of political party,” Ball said in an official statement quoted by Politico.

Dems blush as Krystal Ball sex pics hit the ‘Net“And I have a message for any young woman who is thinking about running for office and has ever attended a costume party with her husband or done anything stupid on camera. Run for office. Fight for this country. Don't let this sort of tactic deter you.

"Of course, I am embarrassed by these photos, that was the whole point of these political operatives when they put them up. But more than just embarrassed, I'm angry.

"I'm angry that when we are suffering from high unemployment, record budget deficits and a broken education system, that crass political operatives will resort to the politics of personal destruction when they can't talk about the issues."
