Ontario Tory embarrassed over penis photo (Another day, another embarassed politician)
CNNews ^ | 05/31/2011 | TOM GODFREY, QMI Agency

Posted on 05/31/2011 2:32:34 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

TORONTO - Rookie PC candidate George Lepp says he's embarrassed that a photo of his family jewels was posted on his campaign Twitter account for about 20 minutes before it was quickly unzipped.

Alan Sakach, communications director for the Ontario Conservatives, said the photo was inadvertently taken by Lepp's BlackBerry when it was in his front pocket. The photo was posted after someone took it from the candidate for the riding of Niagara Falls, Ont., according to Sakach.

"He is pretty upset and embarrassed," Sakach said of a photo that was posted on Lepp's account Sunday. "It was removed as soon as it came to his attention."

QMI Agency obtained grainy copies of the Twitter page images before they were removed.

The pictures - too graphic to reproduce - are of a man naked from the waist down, showing a close up of his penis and his crossed legs.

Sakach said the device was operating on camera mode in his front pant pocket when it went missing. He added that Lepp suspects it was taken as he was jostled by protestors outside the Dixon Rd. convention centre where the Tories met for the party's weekend convention.

Sakash said he didn't know if police were called about the stolen BlackBerry.

"It was an unfortunate circumstance," Sakach said Sunday. "This is pretty low and juvenile, and we don't believe it is politically motivated."

Very difficult to believe.

It seems there are an unusual number of flashers in politics. I guess it gives them a thrill.

Clad or not clad, male or female, pretty much any picture of a politician is a picture of a putz.

No kidding! Even if he was wearing very loose pants, with a hugh hole in the pocket, and no underwear, it would be DARK.

What is *wrong* with these people? Newsflash, guys ... nobody who has ever changed a diaper wants to see your dinglebob. That’s why we have a switch to turn out the lights.

It is sometimes very funny (and revealing), when they show us how stupid they really think we are. The bigger joke will be how many libs defend this.

While he was getting jostled by protesters???? Was he standing there with his legs crossed? Did he have to make a pee-pee?? Also, was he “going commando” that day? And wouldn’t it be super dark inside his pants?

TO MEN EVERYWHERE: Stop taking pictures of your junk!!! Unless you wish to attract gay men, no one else wants to see your naughty bits!!!!!

LOL! Yeah, it was pretty desperate.

Who the heck knew that we had all these flashers in politics?

FWIW, I read an analysis of flashers many years ago that said that many of them are impotent in the act itself or are in circumstances that make them feel impotent, and thus rely on flashing views of their little buddy when it wakes up from time to time. They honestly think women are going to be impressed by this.

Yuck!

Wait a minute. Why was this guy running around with a picture of his privates? The “phone in the front pocket” doesn’t answer the question. This guy is plain weird.

Yeah, what I just said! Someone on another thread said it best - paraphrasing here:

Penises are like squid. They might be wonderful when ready and well-prepared, but no one wants to see pictures of them on the menu.

Wish I could give credit to the person who said it.

I am not sure I understand the explanation.

His explanation seems to be for how the picture got onto Twitter and not for how or why it came to be. The picture was on his Blackberry when it 'went missing,' i.e., was stolen from his pocket.

I’m missing something. Are they saying the photo was taken by the blackbery while in his pocket or that the blackberry was taken from his pocket and a photo was taken by someone else and posted using his blackberry??

It seems to be a recent rash of behavior among celebrity men in general? I don’t know, maybe many men tend towards it and we only hear about the famous ones?

The way I get it is he is saying his phone somehow left the front pocket of his shirt, slid down his pants, took a picture of his junk (apparently no underwear), and then sent it out.

I don’t think so. If there is a better explanation I’m sure he’ll share it. Whatever, he’s not a politician from my country. I am just observing a lot of exposure lately. . .maybe it’s because we are in a digital age.

You can say that again. You would think it would be dark inside his pants (unless he also had a flashlight shining it there), and he should have had underwear on. And why did he have his legs crossed? Sheesh.

Excuse fail.

I'm sorry. I'm so laughed out by the Anthony Weiner thing (if you can even call it that), I just don't know what to say ~ but the picture was taken from his pocket ~ through a hole in his pants perhaps?

Was that a big hole or a small hole, and what?

Remember the judge with the "penis pump" under his bench?

No, don't remember that.

My goodness just where do we get these people!

OK. Please pay attention - its really not hard. First ignore your common sense, principles of physics, knowledge of clothing and camera phones and then write down whatever our liberal saviors say in explanation and then print it.

See its easy. ;-)

I hate to tell everyone here but it’s not just men or celebrities.

I have a 30 year old son that gets those pictures from nearly every girl he meets.

I find it disgusting and immoral. The girls even send hard copies in the mail. I was shocked. That is illegal. Or is it ?

Of course my son thinks it’s funny. I do not.

Actually, I think the whole world is nutz. I have a family member in law enforcement who has to deal with women who “think they have been raped” by somebody they invited up to their apartment after a night of hard drinking and drugs. And they actually go to the police and complain!!!

This is the case even though they aren’t sure there has actually been any sexual contact (if he was as wasted as they were, probably not) and they cannot even describe anything that happened. Maybe they woke up with their underwear off and the guy gone, but who knows? They were obviously having blackouts and don’t remember a thing that happened.

That said, it’s truly sad and pathetic that anyone of either sex should be sending out pix of their privates. For one thing, these body parts were normally covered up because they’re UGLY! The fig leaf was invented for a reason.

Why would this guy even have a picture of his ‘jewels’? I do not know of any guy that would have such a picture, unless they were up to no good, which in this case and the Weinerdog case is the true reason why.

Are these penis posting politicians in some kinda contest to see who is more stupid, or are they just trying to compare size via Twitter? What twits! I heard boys did that in high school. Next thing they will be sending out autographed pics of their “junk” and saying someone forged their signatures. This is getting out of hand. Hmmmm

I agree.

When did something like that, showing your personal business, become the “in” thing to do ?

I wanted to send those pictures to their mothers. Unfortunately, most live on their own.

I can say this, I don’t want him bringing any of his girls here.

It is time to state the obvious truth: There is no such thing as a secret picture of a penis. If the picture exists it will be seen.

No kidding! Even if he was wearing very loose pants, with a hugh hole in the pocket, and no underwear, it would be DARK.

If it had IR capabilities such as some Sony camcorders had, this would be completely possible, to wit:
What makes the Samsung Intensity II so intense? A built-in 1.3 megapixel camera with infrared mode detects heat signals allowing for night vision and other unique creative photographs. Like the original, the Intensity II features both a sliding physical QWERTY keyboard and 12-key numeric keypad. Completing the package, the Intensity II features a larger 2.2-inch QVGA screen and up to 32GB microSD removable memory, doubling the storage of the original Intensity.
On the IR mode, the clothes would, at the most, only slightly obscure the image of the hot, ha ha, body parts, depending on how much heat the clothes were giving off.
