Ben Quayle: "Somebody Has To Go to Washington and Knock the Hell out of the Place"

Posted By on Thu, Aug 12, 2010 at 1:36 PM

Congressional candidate Ben Quayle, son of former VP Dan Quayle, has a new ad in which he argues: "Somebody has to go to Washington and knock the hell out of the place."

Meanwhile, someone complained today that we don't do enough tawdry gossip around here anymore. (Personally, I think that poster used to do a much better job of busting on us.)

So here's the latest twists in the story about Quayle's contributions to pervo website thedirty.com from the Washington Post:


The site's founder, Hooman Karamian, alleged in a Monday post on TheDirty that Quayle was "one of the original contributors" to the site, which featured sexy photos of women and "chronicled the city's clubs and nightlife and [was] the predecessor to the popular gossip website TheDirty.com."

Karamian said Quayle posted under the name "Brock Landers," an apparent reference to the fictional sidekick to porn star Dirk Diggler in the film "Boogie Nights." Quayle had a featured section on the site, Karamian said, called "Brock's Chick," in which he sought to "find the hottest chick in Scottsdale." He added that "Without Ben, there would be no TheDirty.com." Quayle acknowledged Tuesday that he did contribute to the site in an interview with Phoenix's 12 News.

"I just posted comments to try to drive some traffic," [Quayle] said.

"What kind of comments?" the reporter asked.

"This is four years ago," Quayle replied. "This is hilarious this is being brought up. ... This is a smear. This is a smear on me from a smear website being pushed by a smear campaign."


Meanwhile, thedirty.com compiles what it calls Brock Landers' greatest hits here.
