Krystal Ball, a Virginian candidate for Congress, has had a series of relatively NSFW photos released that display a “naughty” Christmas party six years ago. The pictures show Ball leading around a man (now her ex-husband) on a leash and doing other things in a joking manner.
A Republican blogger released the photos in an attempt to discredit Ball, a Democrat. Ball responded, saying the release of the pictures was “incredibly sexist” and “outrageous”, which is kind of silly because obviously the internet would be all over these pictures if a man were involved as well.
As far as political scandals go this is pretty damn tame, but here are more pictures for the curious:
