"If people want to know about it, they should know I won the contest."
On the day of the historic Supreme Court decision, New Jersey's Democratic Party embarrasses itself big time, as the Sussex County party chairman wants a candidate for State Senate to quit the race because he "entered a photo contest in New York City that featured nudity".
What the AP story says: The candidate, semi-famous for being the runner-up on 'Reality' Game Show The Mole
and one of "People Magazine's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors", really is
named Jim Morrison (TVTome database embarrassment)
What the AP story didn't say: (local newspaper story)
Morrison is openly gay, it was a "prettiest penis contest", and it was made public more than two years ago
. And the party chair's real problem with Morrison is his winning the primary as a 'write-in' (scroll down to "Legislature '03")
Now what bothers
me about this guy is that when he was on "Mole", his occupation was "helicopter pilot", and now he's "a partner in his parents' law firm". Now that's "family values"...
