Eastern Oregon, welcome to Web 2.0

Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist of Arlington, a small town in Eastern Oregon, is in trouble with her constituents for some racy pictures she posted on her Myspace profile. One picture shows Kontur-Gronquist posed on the town’s fire engine in her skivvies. This is usually the part where Kontur-Gronquist would issue some sort of awkward apology, right?

the mayor said she did nothing wrong and those who are offended need to get over it.

“That’s my personal life,” she said. “It has nothing to do with my mayor’s position […] I’m not going to change who I am.”

Judging from her picture, no one is going to force her to change either; Kontur-Gronquist is stacked. Or, as the Fark headline put it, “Mayor McKickYourAss saw no reason to remove the lingerie pictures from her MySpace page after being elected, what are you going to do about it?”

Hmm, speaking of mayors, I wonder …

    If she was wearing a bikini this would not be happening. Do I want to get into the detais of this situation? No. They speak for themselves. This is nothing.

    Typical American ignorance and Amishness (no I don’t think this way of all Americans but it is an American sociological trait).

    If she steps down as mayor I will not only never spend a dollar in the vicinity of that town and I will do my best via the internet to make sure as many people on the planet as possible will not even buy a candy bar from that town.

    Hmmm…any chance we can trade in Kitty Piercy for Gronquist?

    This story has been all over television. And let me just say, the people of Arlington should be damn lucky to have a hot looking mayor like Ms. Gronquist.
