Porn Tabs Give Red-Faced Congressional Candidate a Rough Ride

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Mike Webb’s a chap many of you haven’t heard of before, but he’s caused quite a storm across the pond. The Republican candidate for US Congress in Virginia’s 8th district (probably a fairly important thing) had a mare by forgetting to close his porn tabs before sharing a screenshot to his campaign page.

"Layla Rivera tight booty" and "Ivone sexy amateur" sound dirty, and a little light research confirms that they are indeed videos of the naughty kind.

Not only that, but Webb left his post up (along with something else, I’m sure) for over seven hours, even re-posting it elsewhere. Gawker, which spotted the mishap, got in touch with Webb, who responded by offering an incomprehensible explanation David Brent would be proud of, mentioning viruses, ‘the Geek Squad’ and even Satan himself. Confusing.

Finally, he returned with his… tail… between his legs and admitted to his slip-up. We think he did anyway. Mike Webb, you truly are the king of shit-chat. Well, almost. [Gawker]
