Public Sex with the Borg....:

Barack Obama must be loving this...

"Republican Senate candidate Jack Ryan pressured his wife, actress Jeri Lynn Ryan, to have sex in clubs while others watched, she charged in divorce documents released Monday.
The ``Boston Public'' and ``Star Trek: Voyager'' actress said she angered Ryan by refusing. She did acknowledge infidelity on her part, which she said took place after their marriage was irretrievably broken.
In the documents Ryan denied the allegations, saying he had been ``faithful and loyal'' to his wife.
Jeri Lynn Ryan charged during a custody hearing that Ryan took her on surprise trips to New Orleans, New York and Paris in 1998, and that he insisted she go to sex clubs with him on each trip.
She said that after going out to dinner with Ryan in New York, he demanded that she go to a club with him.
``It was a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling,'' she said. She said Ryan asked her to perform a sexual act while others watched, and she refused.
She said they left and Ryan apologized to her and said it was out of his system. But then, she said, he took her to Paris and again took her to a sex club ....

In Ryan's defense, if you are having sex with Jerri Ryan, you want as many people to know as possible.


This story is getting more play now, and Ryan's denial has started to make the rounds...

"We did go to one avant-garde nightclub in Paris which was more than either one of us felt comfortable with. We left and vowed never to return," he told the court. "

The normal clubs in Paris are fairly avante garde. The avante garde clubs must be crazy.

For her part Ryan seems contrite...: "'There was never any physical abuse in our marriage - either to myself or our son - nor, to my knowledge, was he ever unfaithful to me,' Ryan said. 'I wish him all the best, both in his life and career. I have no doubt that he will make an excellent senator.'"

And some are asking Ryan to step down...

"Obviously, if people would have known this information prior to the primary, I think there's no way that Jack could have won," said LaHood, who backed another Republican in the primary. "I think he needs to do what's good for himself and what's good for the party, and that's take his name off the ballot and allow the Republican party of Illinois to name a candidate.""

I think that it is lucky for Ryan that:

1. As an actress, Jeri Ryan is clearly used to doing things in public that others would not. I do not know if she has done any nude scenes. but for some reason i seem to doubt it.

2. There is much more significant stroy in the news right now involving sex and the public office. I think the comparison actually help Ryan. Republicans are freaky, yes, granted. But we get freaky with our young hot wives. Not with overweight possibly underaged office staff.

And besides, it allows pictures likes this:

to be newsworthy.
