Family Values

It's a local race, and under the radar, but some things, you just can't resist.

Sandy Sullivan is the Republican Candidate for Wisconsin Secretary of State.

Her only qualification for the office is that she had sex with the Green Bay Packers football team. And wrote a book about it:

Sandy Sullivan, a 65-year-old Republican with no political experience, self-published a gushing memoir in 2004 titled "Green Bay Love Stories and Other Affairs" in which she claims she was the girlfriend of Green Bay Packers Paul Hornung and Dan Currie, deflected a pass from Hall of Famer Don Hutson and was on the receiving end of a saucy comment from Richard Nixon.

Sullivan, who is now a blonde and owns a marketing company that she says sets up autograph sessions and Packer appearances, is not hiding from her past. If anything, she is reveling in it. Her campaign Web site prominently mentions the book and features a picture of her with former Packers quarterback Bart Starr.

From her online bio:

2004 - Present - Published author: Green Bay Love Stories

Life-long passion for, and friendship with, Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers

And, being a modern Republican, she is completely clueless as to how absurd this looks.
