Did Pageant Officials Distribute Child Pornography to Smear Carrie Prejean?
NewsRealBlog.com ^ | November 12, 2009 | Ben Johnson

It looks like the leftist partisans who violated Joe the Plumber’s privacy, rifled through Linda Tripp’s confidential records, and spent weeks literally navel-gazing at Bristol Palin’s real and imagined pregnancies have hit a new low: leaking an underage pornographic video to smear Carrie Prejean.

By now, the media have ensured millions of people who never learned the names of Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, or Anita Dunn have heard that the former Miss California once made a solo sex tape -- or, as the seasoned gatekeepers of reliable journalism often report it, simply a “sex tape.” Prejean told Sean Hannity this week that she made the video for an old boyfriend; other news outlets have reported she filmed herself five years ago, when she was 17. If accurate, that makes the tape child pornography under California law.

The video came to light after the Miss California pageant’s lawyers showed some of the tape in court, causing Prejean to drop her lawsuit against the contest in “about fifteen seconds.” But the court attendees -- including Prejean’s mother -- were not the first to see the film since the break-up. The celebrity gossip website TMZ has announced it “obtained the video months ago.” Which raises the question: how and from whom was the film”obtained”? In this case, it seems prudent to ask the Latin question, Cui bono -- who benefits? The beauty contest’s lawyers, who took Prejean’s crown under questionable circumstances, were locked in a bitter legal battle with a sympathetic defendant. Did pageant officials leak child pornography to the media in an effort to destroy a legal adversary?

If this is true, then they need to be prosecuted. Will never happen though.

Plausible.

Reborn, that’s perverse. And it may be a modification, but I’m sure it holds true: 17 will get you 20.

I wondered the same thing since she was 17. But wouldn’t her ex boyfriend be the one who distributed it? And, is the tape (text) being made public in any way?

I think the person who got the short end on this deal was Kristen Dalton as Miss Prjean got more publicity than the actual winner and the press made it sound as if Dalton would never have had a chance were it not for all the controversies. I think both girls were qualified and frankly I think the whole beauty pageant idea is pretty archaic. If you have ever watched an episode of Toddlers and Tiaras you would see how these events have gotten out of hand. On the other hand I would like to see beautiful girls and women encouraged to compete in things like public debate and other academic areas. While beauty and athletic ability are nice to have, neither will be attributes of necessity for future leaders in this country.

But this girl admitted she took the pictures herself on her cell phone and texted them to her boyfriend at the time.

The guy she sent them to, years ago should have deleted it when the relationship ended.

Who is this guy and why is he not exposed?

submarinerswife, the rest of the article deals with the boyfriend, after the jump. Hint: he probably distributed the video long ago.... If she was 17 at the time, this can never be released publicly in the United States, although it may well make the rounds in the EU.

I'm going to guess the pageant put a bunch of private investigators on the payroll to go through everybody she ever knew, and get anything they could.

Same as happened to Dr. Laura and Kristen Davis. Wanting revenge over the breakup and/or eagerness to cash-in once your ex became famous.

Technically, the first distributor was Prejean herself. She and her boyfriend would be the only two who could easily be shown to know her actual age at the time of the video.

All others who copied and or forwarded it to others to view, could be charged, however, it would be difficult to prove unless there were dates, or a story to go with it (ie, boyfriend tells people he gives the video to that Prejean was 17 when she did it).

Sure hope she (Elders) didn't do a training film.

On the very face of it, whether she was of age or not, she was being blackmailed by the opposition.

David Letterman is pursuing this angle against the reporter who offered him “first shot” at a script outlining his workplace affairs.

She was pressured to drop her lawsuit in exchange for not releasing this video.

Apparently for liberals its ok to destroy a person like Carrie Prejean because of her faith in Christianity, but don’t you dare mention that the Ft. Hood Terrorist was a Muslim.

The age of consent to have sexual intercourse is under 18 in many states. It's as low as 16 in some places like Nevada and the Deep South.

However, that does not affect the child-pornography statutes, which protect children of less than 18 throughout the country.

When it comes to conservatives, and especially conservative women who have strong faith in God with huge popularity ratings, liberals love to use the term “Let’s DECIMATE her!”

The culture war continues.

I swear I see a little black dot (i.e. age of consent is 9 years old) about where San Francisco is on the map. What’s their favorite saying? “Get em at 8 and you’re too late!”?

If this is true, Rush should not be a judge in the contest.

Carrie was treated very poorly by Meredith Veira on Today, the harridans on the Shrew View, and by even the comatose Larry King.

The word is out—like Sarah Palin—this strong Christian woman must be destroyed.

This lady made the mistake of speaking out against the perversion of homosexuality. The leftist aka progressive perverted homosexuals will not stand for this.
I see the perversion of homosexuality as bad as racism.
Any time you speak out against the perversion of homosexuality or racism you are attack constantly.
