Lewd Twitter Pic Lands Canuck Pol in Media Glare
Red-faced Canadian politician makes headlines by doing a Sharon Stone after his private parts were flashed on Twitter account via camera app on a Blackberry phone.
TORONTO – Canadians got a look at more than the private life of Ontario politician George Lepp this weekend.
They got an eyeful of his private parts uploaded to his Twitter account.
The grainy close-up of Lepp’s family jewels was apparently taken by the camera app on his Blackberry when it was in his front pant pocket, according to political aides, and posted to his Twitter account after the mobile phone was snatched from the politician at some point this weekend.
“It was an unfortunate circumstance. This is pretty low and juvenile and we don’t believe it is politically motivated,” Ontario Conservatives party spokesman Alan Sakach told the Toronto Sun newspaper Sunday.
“He is pretty upset and embarrassed. It was removed as soon as it came to his attention,” Sakach added of the politician’s Basic Instinct moment.
Lepp had been attending a Conservative party convention over the weekend, and was frequently updating his Twitter followers with event news.
