[Look] Caught in the Act: Congressional Candidate Accidentally Shares Embarrassingly Explicit Screenshot

Politicians, they’re just like us.

Published May 17th

Mike Webb, a Virginia congressional candidate, recently shared a screenshot of an online campaign posting. The only problem with the shot, it included the pornography sites that Webb had been, ahem, exploring.

The original post served as a way for Webb to announce his running for Congress through a somewhat convoluted story about a staffing agency. Along with the story, he posted a screenshot that he took of a map of the agency. Perhaps the photo itself was just too dull and caused viewers to scrutinize other aspects of the photo, eventually leading them to see the tabs “IVONE SEXY AMATEUR” and “LAYLA RIVERA TIGHT BOOTY.”

After a bit o research, it was discovered that both of those tags were associated with porn sites and Layla Rivera happens to be a very well known Latina porn star. Well at least he has good taste right? And with all the anti-Latino sentiments made by some more prominent politicians, it’s a little refreshing to see some Latin love (in whatever fashion that may be).

Webb eventually took to Facebook to post what some are calling an explanation of his sexual exploration, but the post seems like a bit of double talk. In the post, that he has since deleted, Webb accredited the tabs to a “[want] to test the suggestion that somehow, lurking out in the pornographic world there is some evil operator waiting for the one in a gazillion chance that a candidate for federal office would go to that particular website and thereby be infected with a virus that would cause his or her FEC data file to crash…”

Bruh, let’s get real. Surely, running for Congress is a stressful job, and you just wanted to find some time to relax. If anything, this will bring you a lot closer to your voters.
