News of the Weird
Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Korinne Barnes, 29, a single mother of three running for the North Kingstown (R.I.) School Committee, was finally persuaded in September to remove her MySpace.com personal listing in which she described herself as “smart, sexy, fun” and a “voluptuous chocolate sister with a big booty.”
By contrast, Loretta Nall, 32, the Libertarian Party write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, remains unembarrassed by her sexiness, telling reporters that she hoped that voters attracted by her cleavage would listen to her campaign platform. She offers a T-shirt to supporters reading, “More of these boobs and (referring to pictures of her opponents) less of these boobs.”
