6:00 PM -- Just in case you haven't had your fill of political shenanigans this week, the Associated Press reported today that the mayor of Arlington, Ore., has become embroiled in a scandal:

    The mayor of an Oregon town who once stripped to her underwear and posed on a fire truck has been stripped of her office.

Now, really -- who would have thought one would lead to the other? Sexuality and politics usually go together so well.

    Kontur-Gronquist said the pictures of her in black bra and panties were taken for use in a contest about fitness, but a relative posted them on MySpace in hopes it would improve the social life of the single mother.

Instead she just got friend-requested by Tom.

    They predated her election, but she said she saw no reason to take them off the popular Web site once elected three years ago.

Clearly demonstrating the kind of impeccable judgment necessary to be a respectable mayor.

    Opponents said it wasn't fitting for the mayor to be so depicted. They said they also disagreed with her on issues about water and the local golf course.

Oregon politicians take note: Only an anti-nudity/pro-golf platform can succeed in Arlington.
