Too sexy for Mayor? Ousted for myspace pictures, Oregon mayor defends herself
ARLINGTON, Oreg.- A week after she was ousted from office, the former Mayor of a small Oregon town defends herself on the Today Show.
Former Arlington Mayor Carmen Gronquist says her recall was based on issues with the town's golf course, but recall supporters used scandalous pictures from her Myspace to push her out of office.
"Do I apologize for the photos on MySpace?" she asked rhetorically during an interview on with TODAY's Meredith Vieira. "No, I don't."
"I had thousands of people e-mail me on MySpace and [ask] for signed photos," the 42-year-old said. "We thought about it. We will be donating a portion back to the local ambulance service I'm very involved with and to our health district."
