Krystal Ball, A series of photos taken six years ago have come back to haunt Krystal Ball, a Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia. The photos are of her and her then husband, posing in sexually lewd photos while a Christmas party. Ball has condemned the publication of these photos, indicating the blogger who posted them giving him a “sexist treatment”.
The photos were posted on a Republican blog called “Virginia Vertucon” and have also been re-released by a Republican blogger who calls himself Black Velvet Bruce Li Ball is angry and embarrassed by the photos being released because they are very personal for her, not something she wanted the world to see.
The accountant of 28 years is running against the Republic Rob Wittman (R-Va.) in central Virginia in the coming midterm elections.
“It is sexist and that is wrong, regardless of party politics,” The ball has said in his statement. “And I have a message for any young woman who is considering standing for election and has never attended a costume party with her husband or doing something stupid on camera. Run for office. Fighting for this country. Do not let this kind of tactic to discourage you. ”
“Of course I am embarrassed by these photos, which was the point of all these political agents when they set up. But more than just discomfort, I’m angry!” The ball continues. ‘I’m angry that when we suffer from high unemployment, record budget deficits and a broken education system, that gross political agents will use the policy of personal destruction when they can not talk about these issues. ”
We’ve seen the photos before writing this article, and we decided not to publish them because of their explicit nature. But we confirm that although nudity is not involved, they are quite damaging.
