Topless Photo Appears on Independent GOP Site

Bill Brady asks site to take picture down


    This is a cropped photo that appears on The rest is NSFW.

    A picture of a topless woman on has rankled at least one high-ranking member of the Republican party.

    The photo appears on the independent Chicago Web site as part of a story about John Edwards and his lover, Rielle Hunter, although the model used in the picture is not directly related to the subjects.

    Through a spokesperson, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady told the Chicago Sun-Times that he thinks the photo is "inappropriate," and asked that his name be removed from the site, along with the naked photo.

    Despite a number of Brady campaign ads, the spokesman says they are not involved with the site, the Sun-Times reported.

    Despite numerous complaints since the TheCapitolFaxBlog reported the story Wednesday afternoon, the site's owner Tom Swiss says he's leaving the picture up.
