"Paladino campaign hosted naked leathermen picture"

"Paladino campaign hosted naked leathermen picture"

Politerati

The Paladino for the People campaign of New York real estate developer Carl Paladino, who earlier on Monday called gay pride parades “disgusting” during an appearance on NBC’s “Today,” briefly hosted a picture of three nude leathermen on its blog as part of what the campaign manager is calling a computer hack.

Bloggers with regional cable network YNN’s Capital Tonight political roundtable took a screengrab of the blog, which is no longer loading, adding a black censor bar over the men’s behinds.

“It certainly wasn’t us doing it,” campaign spokesman Robin Wolfgang told Politerati. “We certainly had no intention of posting nude pictures on our web site.” The campaign manager for Paladino, Michael Caputo, told Capital Tonight the blog was hacked.

“Regardless of which side of the gay marriage debate one happens to embrace, I think a seperate debate can he held on the issue of whether or not children should necessarily be encouraged to attend gay parades?” the blog asked in the item with the photo before it went offline. “Are gay parade’s wild displays helping or hurting the struggle to win wider public acceptance?”

"In Professor-Dominatrix Scandal, U. of New Mexico Feels the Pain"

on Monday, 20 September 2010. Posted in Media Updates

"In Professor-Dominatrix Scandal, U. of New Mexico Feels the Pain"

Chronicle of Higher Education

In some ways, working as a phone-sex dominatrix is a lot simpler than being on a college faculty. Your relationship with others is clearly defined, no one formally complains about anything you say to them, and you stand little risk of getting caught up in messy struggles over power.

It gets complicated, however, if you try to do both jobs. Life has become extremely complex in the University of New Mexico's English department in the three years since Lisa D. ChÃvez, a tenured associate professor, was discovered moonlighting as the phone-sex dominatrix "Mistress Jade," and posing in promotional pictures sexually dominating one of her own graduate students.
