O’Donnell Sex Story Causes Outrage

On Thursday, Gawker published an anonymous account by a man who said he had a one-night stand with Delaware Senate candidate and sex-puritan Christine O’Donnell. He alleged no sex but said they got naked together on Halloween a few years ago. The story has caused quite a backlash online. At Salon, Tracy Clark-Flory says that the piece makes O’Donnell “an immensely more relatable and sympathetic character.” Already, it’s being parodied.
