Congratulations to Democratic state senator Randy White of West Virginia for winning reelection in November. You may recall that White is the politician who was the subject of a Charleston television station which aired revealing pictures of him before the election. The Washington Post had the story.
White’s official government homepage is here, funded by your hard-working tax dollars.
“The pictures were taken approximately two years ago in private and were stolen from my personal computer,” said White, 51, a married father of three. “I am not sure why they were given to the media, but I must assume for obvious political reasons.”
An apologetic White also wrote that he was “shocked” and “horribly embarrassed” after WCHS-TV aired photos depicting him and at least two other men wearing only body paint.
White did not mention extortion during a brief Monday interview with The Associated Press or in Tuesday’s letter. White wrote that he had been working with his family to overcome a “personal identification situation” and to overcome depression for which he has been treated through medication for over a year.
“I am a religious person and have been for some months praying to God to help my family and me through this tragic and troubling episode in my life,” the letter said.
We have it on good authority that all of Randy White’s praying paid off. Eureka, he won re-election body and all.
