There was an anonymous article posted on Gawker Thursday afternoon that claimed the author had a one night stand with Christine O'Donnell, minus the sex, but according to the author, that was because he was turned off by O'Donnell's personal grooming habits with things never really heating up afterwards.
We'd probably knocked back five Heinekens when Christine leaned over and whispered in my ear that she wanted to go back to my place. Before we could go, though, she told me to ask her friend if she'd mind if I drove Christine home later that evening. That was odd. I guess Christine didn't want to come across as a slut in her friend's eyes for going home with me, so she wanted me to bring it up her friend first.This article has gotten the ire of conservatives like Meghan McCain, and it's validity is unknown, but the author does have pictures of O'Donnell in a ladybug outfit. The author claims O'Donnell had emailed him after the failed sexual encounter but things went nowhere from there - I suggest that the author try to find those emails otherwise he will be dismissed as another Will Folks - the man who claimed to have an affair with "Mama Grizzly" Nikki Haley of South Carolina. Folks, though, released text messages and a more detailed account, prompting Haley to quickly try to discredit her accuser - I wonder what O'Donnell's response will be...
I did what I was told and asked her friend if she had any objection to me hanging out with Christine a little longer provided I took her home later on in the evening. She didn't, and a few minutes after that, we were all headed back to my apartment. Christine's friend got in her car and went home. My roommate went to his bedroom and went to sleep. And Christine and I got cozy on the couch and popped open another beer.
Things got physical on the couch pretty quickly. It wasn't long before we'd moved from the living room to my bed.
I won't get into the nitty gritty details of what happened between the sheets that evening. But I will say that it wasn't half as exciting as I'd been hoping it would be. Christine was a decent kisser, but as soon as soon as her clothes came off and she was naked in my bed, Christine informed me that she was a virgin.
"You've got to be kidding," I said. She didn't explain at the time that she was a "born-again virgin." She made it seem like she'd never had sex in her life, which seemed pretty improbable for a woman her age. And she made it clear that she was planning on staying a virgin that night. But there were signs that she wasn't very experienced sexually. When her underwear came off, I immediately noticed that the waxing trend had completely passed her by.
Updated - Christine O'Donnell's campaign responded to allegations that the born-again virgin and moral crusader-turned-senatorial candidate had a one-night stand with a man at a past Halloween party, and as could be expected, O'Donnell blames sexism and her Democratic opponent.
"This story is just another example of the sexism and slander that female candidates are forced to deal with. From Secretary Clinton, to Governor Palin, to soon-to-be Governor Haley, Christine's political opponents have been willing to engage in appalling and baseless attacks -- all with the aim of distracting the press from covering the real issues in this race. Even the National Organization for Women gets it, but Christine's opponent disturbingly does not. As Chris Coons said on September 16th he would not condone personal attacks against Christine. Classless Coons goons have proven yet again to have no sense of common decency or common sense with their desperate attacks to get another rubber stamp for the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda. Such attacks are truly shameful, but they will not distract us from making our case to Delaware voters -- and keeping the focus on Chris Coons' record of higher taxes, increased spending, and as he has done again here, breaking his promises to the voters."First, where was O'Donnell when her teabag bretheren accused the president of sneaking off from the media to meet a woman other than his wife? What about the baseless claims made by New York conservative Carl Paladino against Democrat Andrew Cuomo?
O'Donnell seems to believe such attacks or claims are exclusive to female candidates -they're not, and to be clear, I am unsure of what to make of it, but compared to accusations against the Democrats by right-wing sources like Andrew Breitbart's Big sites or Fox News, I find the Gawker article to be pretty valid, although not as convincing as the Will Folks claim against Nikki Haley. I also agree with the reasoning behing posting the article, should the article prove to be true - it speaks volumes to a certain hypocrisy considering O'Donnell's views on sexuality.
Also, Christ Coons actually condemned the Gawker article too, but that doesn't really fit with O'Donnell's paranoia.
