Tennessee State Rep. Julia Hurley apologized in July and said she would pay for the refinishing of her desk in the legislative chamber after it was revealed that she had carved her initials in it during a January session.
“It was like one in the morning on the last day of the session,” she told WSMV-TV. “I wasn’t thinking straight.”
Rep. Hurley, 29, who has a daughter, 14, unseated a nine-term incumbent legislator in 2010 with a campaign that touted her time as a Hooters waitress.
“If I could make it at Hooters,” she wrote in the restaurant’s magazine, “I could make it anywhere.”
sick, sick, sick!
In June, the California Court of Appeals threw out the three counts of possession of child pornography for which Joseph Gerber had been convicted, even though what Gerber had done was paste face shots of his own 13-year-old daughter onto ordinary pornographic photos.
The U.S. Supreme Court decided in 2002 that a conviction for making “child pornography” requires actual sexual abuse.
Gerber had also been convicted of supplying the daughter with drugs and the court ordered Gerber re-sentenced.
