Krystal Ball angry about racy party pics leak, blames Republican opponent
Virginia congressional candidate Krystal Ball (really?) calls this week's Internet leak of raunchy photos of her taken at a costume party "outrageous" and "incredibly sexist."
"Of course, I am embarrassed by these photos; that was the whole point of these political operatives when they put them up," the 28-year-old Democrat candidate said in a statement, reported by the New York Daily News. "But more than just embarrassed, I'm angry!"
The pics show her in a black tank top and Santa hat. Her husband wore a faux penis on his nose and antlers on his head. And yes, they were photographed simulating... something. But she says it was all in good fun and the photos were taken at a costume party six years ago.
She blames her Republican opponent Rep. Rob Wittman for the leak. But his campaign has denied having any involvement with the release of the naughty photos that appeared on conservative blogs.
"Yesterday, we started our first radio ads calling my opponent out for not debating the issues," Ball said in the statement. "A few hours later, this smear campaign started against me, posted by a blogger with close ties to my opponent's campaign and the local Republican party."
Wittman's campaign manager Casey Werderman released this statement:
"Rob is adamantly opposed to their display, and we have asked that they be removed so that we can continue to discuss the issues."
Yeah, like how hot does Krystal look in that Santa hat.
