Krystal Ball Photos Controversy and Scandal

Krystal Ball photos controversy is yet another scandal that is coming to light during the election year. Krystal Ball photos are racy in nature, yet they aren't indicative of any nudity or looming sex scandal. However, they aren't exactly the type of photos that a candidate would want to have parading around the internet during an election year.

Krystal Ball is a 28 year old House of Representatives hopeful from Virginia. Photos of her have surfaced, and they involve her ex husband around Christmas time, and he was wearing a phallic red nose. She simulates acts with the nose and leads him around with a collar.

Of course, these are funny photos in one aspect, although there are likely many constituents that may suggest that the photos indicate that Krystal Ball isn't serious enough to be the representative of her district.

About the photos, Ball says ""These photos are of me and my ex-husband at a holiday costume party. They are around six years old, when I was about 22. 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. This is not a way to conduct a political campaign and the people of the first district of Virginia and of the United States are disgusted by these kinds of tactics. It’s sexist and it’s wrong, regardless of political party. 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."

What do you think of the Krystal Ball scandal? Do you think it will affect her chances of becoming a representative?

  1. This is a bunch of bull! Why does personal stuff always have to be a dam issue in politics. It was an innocent picture, and it was made into a political issue. WHY DO YOU THINK AMERICA IS TIRED OF OUR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS. The media is also to blame because they play into this "BS". Government, Politics, and Media AND STUPID "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" ARE KILLING OUR COUNTRY!!! WAKE UP AND OPEN YOUR DAM EYES PEOPLE!
