Worst Excuse for Nude Photos on Internet Ever (Yes, Another Politician)

“You know I’ve been losing weight. As I shed that weight, I’ve been taking pictures. I don’t remember taking this particular picture but I’m not gonna say I didn’t take it. I’d tell you if I remembered taking the picture, but I don’t.”-Senator Roberto Arango (PNP-Puerto Rico).

The photo in question was posted on what WaPo terms “gay cruising app Gindr.”  Now, call me crazy, but I am pretty sure that I would remember posting a photo at such a venue.

Indeed, if one heads to Gawker to see a (thankfully pixelated) version of the photo, I have to admit that it is impossible to believe that the photo and its subsequent posting slipped the Senator’s mind…

He has resigned, btw.

He was no inconsequential politician.  Fox News Latino describes him as “The leader of the governing PNP in the Puerto Rican Senate.”

    I think you’re being unfair.

    I’ve also lost some weight recently and I’ve been taking pictures. So I don’t want to say that the picture of me at HotGoatSex.com isn’t me. I’m just saying I don’t remember posting anything there.

    Hey, who can keep track?

    So you’ve been looking, eh?

    The P90X Exercise Program does contain (explicit) directions that you should take pictures to record results.

    However, I don’t think this is the case.
