(Newser) – Sometimes your Newser Virginia bureau feels like it should really be the Alternative Reality bureau (see here and here and here), but even we can't make up this story: A 28-year-old Democrat named Krystal Ball—who is running for a seat in Virginia's 1st District—was somehow blindsided by the online release of party pics of her fellating a reindeer dildo her then-husband was wearing on his nose. Best part? She's not so much embarrassed as pissed, blaming her opponent for the leak, which she calls "sexist."

"I have a message for any young woman who is thinking about running for office and has ever attended a costume party ... or done anything stupid on camera," Ball tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "Run for office. Fight for this country. Don't let this sort of tactic deter you." The blog that dug up the images is currently down; for the photos and Wonkette's chortling, click here. Ball talked to Salon about the pics; click here for that.
