(Newser) – Another day, another politician who cannot keep his clothes on around cell phones. This time, the exhibitionist seems to be Puerto Rican conservative Sen. Roberto Arango, who had several anatomically vivid pics show up on popular gay cruising app Grindr, reports Gawker. When asked about the photos by a Puerto Rican TV station, Arango responded with an Anthony Weiner-esque non-denial: "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."

Even more damning than the initial photo, which showed a shirtless man with his face covered (but wearing a necklace similar to one Arango commonly wears), was a second pic apparently found on the same Grindr account, showing a nude man bent over, from behind. Several prominent Puerto Rican politicians, including the governor, called on Arango to resign if the photos are of him. Arango, who was vice-chair of George Bush's re-election committee in Puerto Rico in 2004, is known for opposing gay rights legislation.
