She was an idiot. There remains a standard for what is appropriate decorum for a person running for, or elected to public office. If she didn't feel she needed to address the matter while running for office, then she needed to be careful whose toes were stepped on when making decisions.

Incredibly stupid.

Finally! A politician that takes the shirt off of HER back instead of the shirt off of OURS!

I live in Georgia and I thought the people here were tight-assed bible thumping prudes, but you people take the cake.

All she needs is some pink hair, 92 metal peircings, tatoos that look like subway graffiti, and don't forget the dreadlocks in the armpits, and she'd be another "empowered goddess" from Santa Cruz.

rlw - there remains a standard an decorum of elected officials or candidates. Thanks for the laugh. Its even funnier that you're serious. I guess doing a workout spread really is that egregious whereas smoking crack, solicitation of sex in a public bathroom, various affairs and sexual scandals, bribery, campaign finance offenses, being an active participant in a WWE match while in office, or plain old incompetence are perfectly acceptable from our elected officials.

If you really think she was removed for that, go right ahead, leave the talking to the adults. "They said they also disagreed with her on issues about water and the local golf course." There you go. She got the Gray Davis treatment.

How stupid. She could have gone to the beach and (legally) exposed more skin.

LOL!
We really do need to lighten up in this country. So in Oregon it's ok to kill yourself, but heaven forbid the mayor, at some point in the past, did a photo shoot in the equivalent of a bikini.

Well yes, but he does "play"(???) his guitar and "sing"(?????). Personally, think sounds like somebody stepped on the cat. Probably the Mayor in her underwear much better show.
