CARL PERRIN WITH YOUNGER WOMAN
First they threatened to release embarrassing pictures of Miss New Jersey, Amy Polumbo, if she didn’t give up her crown and drop out of the Miss America contest. The threat came with a letter that contained some pictures, evidently taken from her FaceBook posting. The letter threatened even worse pictures if Ms Polumbo didn’t drop out of the race. The young woman bravely refused to drop out of the race, saying the photos didn’t show anything illegal or immoral.
Now we have a new twist in blackmailing public figures. Democratic candidate Dr. Carl Perrin received a similar threatening letter with a picture of a woman who looks young enough to be his daughter. We are posting the picture on this site only because we know it will be appearing in every tabloid in America.
Like Ms. Polumbo, Perrin is refusing to drop out of the race. The Miss New Jersey pictures have been released. Most people would consider them pretty mild, and she is still in the Miss America race. Perrin doesn’t know what pictures of him might surface. “I haven’t been perfect,” he admits, “but I think the American people are willing to forgive me a few minor peccadilloes.”
