Transparency in Government

Don't you admire a politician who has nothing to hide from his constituents?   We do.   But we can't understand why County Legislator C. Stephen Eckel removed the nude pictures of himself that he had posted on his website.

"I invite people to look at it and judge for themselves,” Eckel told 13WHAM TV.

But how can the people see Stephen Eckel if C. Stephen Eckel has taken down his pictures?

Defend Art, Mr. Eckel!   Get those naughty bits back on the web for your constituents to see.

Why in the world would this Democrat official post nude photos of himself on a website that anyone, including underage children, could easily find?

And full frontal nudity at that. What is he, some kind of kinky freak?

Giggity, giggity.

Eckel keeps telling everyone that he's a professional artist and that is why he keeps old naked pictures of himself for public viewing on the internet.

It's my understanding that other then his government legislator job, he is a stay at home husband who hasn't held a real job in years.

I guess all politicians who get caught with compromised naked pictures on the web can now simply say "Well, it ok because I'm an out of work artist!"

And then pornographic pictures of these electeds will be totally fine!

Steve "Boogie Nights" Eckel is a genius!

I don't care that there are nude pictures of him. I don't really get upset by nudity and no, it does not bother me that children might see nude pictures. Not sure why that would be so terrible. I would be upset if he were a pedophile or something, but simply having nude pictures of yourself is hardly some huge sin in my book.

I do care that he's a liberal. I wouldn't vote for him based on his policy positions.
