A picture of a topless woman on ChicagoGOP.com 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.
