Krystal Ball photos, scandal
Krystal Ball, now 28, is shown in the photos at a Christmas costume party dressed in a Santa hat, thigh-high stockings, black satin camisole and mini skirt. Her husband dressed as Rudolph with a red penis for a nose.
Krystal Ball is angry that someone leaked the photos to try and ruin her chances during the upcoming election.
She says: “It’s sexist and it’s wrong, regardless of political party. And I have a message for any young woman who is thinking about running for office and has ever attended a costume party with her husband or done anything stupid on camera. Run for office. Fight for this country. Don’t let this sort of tactic deter you.
“Of course, I am embarrassed by these photos, that was the whole point of these political operatives when they put them up. But more than just embarrassed, I’m angry. I’m angry that when we are suffering from high unemployment, record budget deficits and a broken education system, that crass political operatives will resort to the politics of personal destruction when they can’t talk about the issues.”
