Dan Quayle's Son Wins Congressional Primary
Ben Quayle, the son of former vice president Dan Quayle, unexpectedly won his Republican primary for a House seat in Arizona on Tuesday despite a slate of bad press. Controversy enveloped Quayle after he was accused of writing for the site TheDirty.com under the pseudonym Brock Landers, which is the name of a porn star from Boogie Nights.
Campaigning as a family-values conservative, Quayle first denied then admitted that he wrote for the sex-steeped Arizona website.
Quayle allegedly compared his own physique to the Sistine Chapel and wrote things like “Long story short, on a scale of 1-to-10, I'm awesome” and "My moral compass is so broken I can barely find the parking lot." He also cut a campaign ad in which he called President Obama “the worst president in history.”
Quayle also sent out a campaign mailer promoting his family values that flopped when it was revealed two little girls in the ad weren't his children. He and his wife do not have kids.
