Politicians – whether you love them or hate them, they love preaching their message. They also love to practice the saying, “Do as I say; not as I do.” Politicians are notorious for behaving badly when they think no one is looking and it appears that many politicians have an affinity for porn. Check out all of these politicians who can’t get their eyes off of porn.
While campaigning, Virginia Congressional candidate Mike Webb wanted to show the public that he was staying relevant and would reach out to constituents through social media. But he did not remember to do one very important thing – he should have closed out his browser tabs for pornography websites before sharing a screenshot.
He took a screenshot of his Facebook page that included additional Web browser tabs titled “LAYLA RIVERA TIGHT” and “IVONE SEXY AMATEUR.” If you were to perform a Google search with those keywords, guess what would pop up? Pornographic videos! Webb, known for his conservative views, praised God for the misstep in a post titled “THANKS FOR THE TAB CHECK, RANGER BUDDIES!”
Trump has built, renovated or managed numerous hotels, casinos and golf courses along with owning part (or all) of the Miss USA, Miss Universe and Miss Teen USA pageants. Throughout his public life, Trump has been followed by ongoing controversy, whether it be about his business practices or his views toward women.
So it really has to come as no surprise that when Trump ran for President in 2016, Controversy followed him. He admitted to finding Paris Hilton attractive and said he watched her sex tape. He was accused of sexual misconduct after a video tape from 2005 as released of Trump describing how he “handles” women. He still won the presidency with 306 electoral votes.
Anthony Weiner has been no stranger to controversy and now we can say he has attempted to create his own porn via social media. On May 27, 2011, Weiner sent a link of a sexually explicit photograph of himself via his public Twitter account to an adult woman. Saying she was an adult is notable because you won’t believe what he did next.
On September 21, 2016, Weiner was caught sending “sexts” (sexual text messages that include images) to a 15-year-old girl. He is currently being investigated and faces charges for sexual conduct with a minor. It seems like Anthony Weiner will never have a career in politics again – and it is time to take away his internet access.
João Rodrigues is a Brazilian politician who attended a parliamentary debate and was caught watching porn on his phone. His guilt is hard to deny because a local media outletshot a video of himscrolling through the material, and even showing it to colleagues, during the debate in the Chamber of Deputies.
Rodrigues made a statement on his Facebook page, stating that he was just combing through material from “nearly a hundred groups” on WhatsApp to “separate the wheat from the chaff.” This statement received mixed reviews but reporters have called Rodrigues’ actions “flagrant” and the images “obscene.” Safe to say his mind is elsewhere.
During a debate in May 2010, while his colleagues were discussing the bill on anti-abortion, Mike Bennett was checking his email on the Senate floor. Little did he know that he was being photographed. An image was released of Bennett opening a picture on his laptop computer showing four women in bikinis. He had it open for three whole seconds, which means he probably forgot where he was for a moment.
The image was picked up by international media, many claiming Bennett was viewingpornography. Bennett later stated that he was opening an email from Ray Fice, a formercircuit courtadministrator who attended high school with Bennett. He apparently sent the picture as a joke. Yeah – a joke that got him in some hot water!
Simeone Di Cagno Abbrescia
Simeone Di Cagno Abbrescia has made no secret of his love of porn, so it should come as no surprise that he was photographed looking at a pornographic internet site during a very important debate. His colleagues were deciding the future of the beleaguered culture minister, who has been criticized for the sorry state of Pompeii.
After some investigation, the site he was on is worse than many people realized. Two of the women were identified as Romanians who call themselves Dollyy and Daisy. They offer themselves for sexual services in hotels or clients’ homes. Looking at porn is one thing; trying to pay porn stars for sex is a whole other issue.
Pennsylvania Councilman Warren Reynolds is the definition of disgusting politician. On April 22, 2013, child pornography was found by a computer technician who was called by Reynolds’ wife to service a home computer. And believe it or not, the findings get worse, causing him to have to resign from public office.
After charges were filed, troopers seized multiple computers from Reynolds home and various forms of storage media. They also found a pair of children’s underwear and more than 500 still and video images of child pornography. According to police, the images included boys and girls as young as three years old. He is a sick person!
Arifinto is an Indonesian lawmaker who was caught watching sexually explicit videos during a parliamentary debate in 2011. Now, while other politicians like to claim “accidental” pop-up, it is hard for Arafinto to deny this. He was caught watching the video clip for several minutes on his computer while his fellow legislators were busily debating plans to build a new parliament building.
The scandal mesmerized the predominantly Muslim nation. It was a local photojournalist who filmed Arifinto, a member of the staunchly Islamic Prosperous Justice Party, gazing at the downloaded porn sites. The blurred images were published on the front pages of newspapers, and people shared their reactions via social media channels.
Clarence Thomas has been at the forefront of scandal for several years, He almost lost his Supreme Court nomination when a woman named Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment when they worked together in the 1980s. But more recently, he has admitted to other bad behavior that is very undignified – especially for a supreme court judge.
Thomas has been accused of watching women at work, considering each as a potential sexual partner. He has also admitted to watching porn during his court confirmation hearings. An ex-girlfriend of Thomas also detailed his obsession with porn. If you ask us, he doesn’t sound like a suitable judge for the Supreme Court.

In 2003, as apublicity stunt, Carey came up with an idea that she should run for governor of California. She was an independent candidate and even placed tenth in a field of 135 candidates. She ran on some very unusual political promises including taxing breast implants, makinglap dancestax-deductible, and creating a “Porn for Pistols” exchange program.

Her first brush with politics started when a group of fans attempted to recruit Daniels to run against Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter in 2010.

Daniels was unaffiliated with any party until April 2010 when she declared herself as a Republican.She planned to focus on the economy, as well as women in business and child protection. She stated that if she was elected, she would likely retire from the adult industry.She later announced that she would not be running for Senate.
Nikki Benz is an award winningUkrainian Canadian pornographic actress. In May 2014 she announced her candidacy for mayor of the city of Toronto. Her major issues she wanted to tackle were lowering taxes and working to bring the adult-film industry to Toronto. That is what you call an interesting platform!
She would be running against the crack-smoking, free-wheeling lawmaker Rob Ford. Benz stated she would do a better job than Rob Ford, at running Canada’s largest city. He knew he would face a challenge from bombshell porn star Nikki Benz but she quickly cancelled her nomination and didn’t resume her run for mayor.
Marilyn Chambers was primarily known for her adult film work, but she made a successful transition to mainstream projects, including politics.

Shane Jones is a former New Zealand politician for the Labour Party. Currently, he is Ambassador for Pacific Economic Development. Back in June 2010, Jones was caught in a porn scandal when he was forced to admit charging adult movies to his taxpayer funded credit card. Now that is embarrassing!
Jones paid back about $5,000 worth of personal spending – including the X-rated movies and shopping trips for sports gear and CDs. The charges included about 20 hotel movies on his ministerial credit card. He really had no explanation for why he would charge pornographic movies to the account. Looks like a serious lapse in judgment!
Per Asklund, Sweden
Per Asklund, a high-ranking local politician from western Sweden, served as the chair of the local council in Laholm in western Sweden. He is part of the Moderate Party and faced charges for buying sex. He was also found to have made thousands of visits to pornographic websites from his office computer.
Asklund wasn’t immediately apprehended for his website browser history on his office computer. He actually chose to leave politics after being charged with illegally purchasing sexual services. He denied purchasing sex but claimed he couldn’t take the pressure anymore. Apparently Asklund just wanted to watch his porn in peace!
State Minister Paul McLeay, Australia
Paul McLeay is a former Australian politician. From 2003 to 2011, he was a member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing the electorate of Heathcote for the Australian Labor Party. In September 2010, McLeay had to resign from his post after admitting that he used a state parliament computer to view adult websites and gamble online.
He said the scandal left him ”humiliated and embarrassed”. He did not reveal details of the sites he visited and did not want to discuss it in further detail. The only comment he made was to address the fact that his use of the sites included only legal material. Well, at least he is being honest about his porn use!
Minister Chua Soi Lek, Malaysia
Minister Chua Soi Lek was Malaysia’s former health minister. In January 2008, he resigned after admitting that he and a female friend appeared in a secretly filmed sex video. Basically, an amateur, made-at-home pornographic video. It was a one-hour long DVD and it circulated anonymously.
Chua Soi Lek, who is a married man with three children, was seen performing sexual acts with the woman in a hotel room. Chua actually admitted to being the man in the video and described the woman as a “personal friend.” He refused to elaborate further on their relationship. Note to self: if you are appointed to political office, never make a sex video.
William Bantom of South Africa
William Bantomis theformer mayor of the South African city of Cape Town. In September 2000, Bantom resigned from his position after being caught downloading pornography from the internet – and this wasn’t the first time. It was actually the second time! It’s like the saying goes “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Bantom, a 54-year-old father of two, was asked to resign despite having been given an earlier warning. Reverend Bantom had a lot to be proud of before he ruined his own reputation. He headed the Cape Town municipality since the first post-apartheid local government elections in 1995 and was the city’s first black mayor.
