Who cares people, get over yourselves. America is too uptight about everything. Our freedoms are being stripped from us at a rapid pace and when they are totally gone, you will gripe about that. Get a life!

Are you kidding me??? When is america going to grow up and realize people have bodies under their clothes and that's noe dirty. After spending many years overseas with the military it became quite apparent to me that the only rapes committed overseas were committed by US servicemen. I blame that directly on our immature attitudes toward sexuality.

The mayor(sharon smith) from Canada that had pictures of herself naked in her mayors office posted all over the internet. She never lost her mayorship. In fact, She is still mayor of Houston BC. I and most Canadians don't have a problem with that. I can't belive how analy retentive the people of ARLINGTON must be to recall her as mayor. She has done more for Arlington in the last week than all the mayors of that town in the last 50 years.
Loosen up the sphincters Arlington.

This story is not as good as the female mayor in western Canada that posed in the nude while sitting at her office desk in city hall. Her kids had a party at the house and they found those nude pictures on the home computer. The Mayor's children's guests at the party put it on the internet so they rest of the world could enjoy the nude pictures of the mayor. She did lose her job over this.

The mayor made some cuts at the local golf course. The course loses money so she layed off the clubhouse manager during the winter months. The clubhouse manager was hired by the former mayor - his brother. The former city gov administration had 7 of 14 family members running the city. The clubhouse manager went on spending frenzies and when Ms Gronquist came in to office and put a stop to it, the golf mafia in this town got pissed! She has Kahunas, she didn't play their game. You want to talk about real corruption you should look into the Nepitism from the former administration. She bucked the system they had in place. She's a fighter for the average citizens in the community. This same group of people are also trying to get her fired from her day job! There's a little insight for you.

I think she sue. She did nothing indecent before or during her mayor tenure. We need to lighten up as a society. Someone who is in to fitness and promoted "fitness" is not ineligible to be mayor. Arnold S. is the Governor of California and how many times was he promoted in thongs and other women on the covers of magazines. Yet there he is. This whole thing is ridiculous and she should have her job back, or be exceptionally compensated. Period...

This is just stupid! The woman posed in a bra and panties. She wasn't nude! She didn't do anything illegal! I've seen more risque outfits on the beach. This is crazy. This is just is just another example of "haterisim." Usually it's the same culprit - Ugly, overweight, old, "wish I looked that hot in my 40's" - people who hate on beautiful people. I'm sure they're at home saying - "She's already the hot and she's the mayor? We gotta get her out of there!" Well Carmen, do your thing, forget the haters. You'll do far greater things than be the mayor of Mayberry R.F.D.
