An online publication has posted pictures that show U.S. Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-Calif., in a compromising position with another woman.
In the pictures posted by Radar Online, Mack is having her breasts licked by Edra Blixseth, a major Bono campaign donor and former billionaire who is currently under investigation for fraud by the FBI. The photos allegedly were taken during an event at Blixseth’s $75-million estate in Rancho Mirage four years ago.
Radar Online’s sources said Mack “was blitzed and clearly having a great time” at the function.
Julie Bornstein, Mack’s 2008 congressional challenger, said the congresswoman’s partying ways are well known in both California and Washington.
“Several women in the California Congressional delegation were embarrassed repeatedly by Mary Bono’s behavior and conduct in the Capitol and encouraged me to run because of the embarrassment she brought to the legislature,” Bornstein told Radar Online.
Mack is the widow of the late Sonny Bono, who was elected to Congress in 1995. She took over Bono’s seat after he was killed in a Nevada ski accident in 1998.
In November, Mack won her re-election bid over Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet, who is openly gay.
