Oregon mayor recalled after posting bikini photo on MySpace

The female mayor of Arlington, Oregon, Carmen Kontur-Gronquist gets recalled after posting her underwear photo on MySpace.

Oregon mayor recalled after posting bikini photo on MySpace Finding racy photos of yourselves on the Internet could be devastating, but jeopardizing yourself by uploading your own bikini pictures on MySpace is down right stupid, especially if you are a mayor. Carmen Kontur-Gronquist, the female mayor of Arlington, Oregon did exactly that - posted a picture of her in bikini, next to a fire truck, on her own MySpace page. According to reports Kontur-Gronquist posed for pictures on a fire truck in a black bra and panties before she became mayor. The Oregon mayor claims that the photo was posted by a relative of hers in order to "improve the social life of the single mother"; Carmen Kontur-Gronquist restricted access to her MySpace page, after the picture became an issue.

 Needless to say, the picture is all over the net now and the damage is done. The folks in Arlington were far from happy that their mayor is posting racy photos online and voters in Arlington narrowly approved a recall measure, removing Carmen Kontur-Gronquist from office. She lost her job by only three votes.
