W.Va. State Sen. Randy White said Wednesday he would continue his campaign for a second term, despite the embarrassment of revealing photos of him aired on a Charleston television station.
The Webster County Democrat blamed a disgruntled former employee for stealing the photos from his computer. Some show him nude, while others show at least two men whose bodies were painted.
“There was nothing sexual about these pictures, and nothing sexual before, during or after they were taken,” White said. “But it does look bad, and it is not easy to explain.”
Oh, come on, senator, give it a try. You know, paint us a picture.
