Forget the stuffy, buttoned-up images of Republicans you may have in your head, some recent sexy photos of Mary Bono Mack, a Republican member of the U.S. Congress, have surfaced that could give teen queens like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato a run for thier racy money. She was the wife of the late Sonny Bono, is currently married to U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.), and represents the 45th district in California.
RadarOnline.com posted the pictures of Mack with a woman licking her breasts. As if that wasn't enough fodder for scandal, the woman doing the licking is none other than Edra Blixseth, a campaign donor who is being investigated by the FBI for fraud allegations. The pictures were reportedly taken at a party four years ago at Blixseth's home.
"Mary was partying hard," a source told RadarOnline.com. "She was blitzed and clearly having a great time."
Julie Bornstein, who ran against Bono in 2008 took the opportunity to trash her.
"Several women in the California Congressional delegation were embarrassed repeatedly by Mary Bono's behavior and conduct in the Capitol and encouraged me to run because of the embarrassment she brought to the legislature. I am not surprised that these pictures exist. She has often spoken about going out with her girlfriends and drinking... she has been known as a strenuous partier."
And that's so awful? Partying politicians are nothing new, though it seems to be a bit more scandalous when women whoop it up than when men do. As long as she's not voting while wasted or has a serious problem, there's nothing wrong with letting loose sometimes.
As for the photos, she has her clothes on, she's an adult, and they were taken four years ago. Who cares? They in no way compromise her ability to do her job, and frankly, the Republican Party's image could use a little lightening up anyway.
What do you think of the photos released of Mary Bono Mack? If she was your representative, would it change your vote for or against her?
