Oregon Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist Stripped to her Underwear … Now Stripped of her Job


Not a smart career move to say the least …

Let this be a lesson to all those teenagers that think there are no consequences Mayor_carmen_gronquistto the risqué pictures that put up on MySpace. Just ask former Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist. The key word in that sentence was “former”. Carmen Kontur-Gronquist recently came under fire when she posted pictures of herself in her underwear on a fire truck on her MySpace web page. Needless to say that caused quite a response from her constituents. In a recall vote, Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist lost her job 142–139.

According to the person who spearheaded the recall drive, Ron Miller, the vote was 142 in favor and 139 against the recall of Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist.

She came under fire after she posted photos of herself posed in lingerie on a fire truck on her MySpace page.

She told KATU News Tuesday that she had no regrets about posting the photo online, and she seemed to harbor no hard feelings about the recall.

“My reaction is that the democratic process took place, and that is a good process that we have in the United States, and it’s fair,” she said.

There are 366 registered voters in Arlington. Dozens of them held meetings and organized after the photo was publicized, and many participated in Monday night’s recall vote.

But the voters weren’t really just angry about the picture, some said.

      In what state is this town of Arlington? Given the trends in society today, it’s almost surprising that she lost the recall vote….

      Sorry I missed it … it’s in Oregon.

      One wonders where the firemen in charge of the fire truck were … or maybe the answer is clear!

      My town needs a new Mayor!

      This was an interesting case. Small town America has different standards. I will not comment on whether I think the vote was correct or not.

      If you look into the case far enough you will find that the photo was already on the internet prior to the time the mayor was elected. They only chose to make it an issue after some of mayor’s political rivals did not agree with some of the decisions made.

      This had nothing to do with the morality. It was purely a political ploy.

      What disciplinary action did the firemen receive?

      Yes the firemen were ok doing it but not the woman!

      Why fire the mayor and nothing for the firemen?

      Is this right? Just what is it with some people?

      I wonder if she used HGH before having the photos taken?

    7. Patti on February 27th, 2008 5:07 pm

      This is not the first time that the Mayor of Portland fell under scrutiny in a debate of sexuality versus art. I agree with Owl that this is a political ploy.

      If she was High do the pictures still count ???

      Hmm seems like the US is getting a bit like Saudi, next they will have her flogged

    10. Scared Monkeys on February 27th, 2008 11:25 pm

      I think at the very least her judgement should be called in to question.

      What is she 16?

      #3 – Mine too.

      Should we question the actions of the people who viewed the photo? Anybody can pose for a photo and people can view it until they are in a political position then all of a sudden it is wrong? I really like the part where they admit that the photo isn’t the real reason why they fired her. It was actually poor decisions she made. Why not fire her for that? They stoop so low to drag out that picture because that is the only way to sway the voting in their favor, not here job performance? They couldn’t find any records of her poor job performance? BS!

      And my town still needs a new Mayor.

      Her under-garments cover more than many people’s bathing suits and clothes! So what’s the big fuss over?

    14. brenda on February 29th, 2008 9:39 am

      The fuss may be over the fact she probably looks better in that underwear than 90% of the women in town ;>)

      This reminds me of the police officers who are currently in hot water for posing with the Hooters girls. Although I agree is was not a good idea to let those girls pose holding the weapons and/or sitting on their laps while the men were in uniform….I don’t think they should be loosing their jobs over it. Had they used a bit of common sense and done this in plain clothes….I doubt it would have ever been news-worthy.

      This happened because the jerks who own the golf course wanted to dig up crap on her. They’re the ones who found and took the pictures off her MySpace page and spread them throughout town and to the news.

      Not a total loss. Am sure she has better things to do than catch grief as a volunteer mayor.

      You people need to wake up a little and realize…things are not always what they seem. At all.

    16. EAGLE on March 4th, 2008 10:31 am

      If this is all these people in this town have to worry about? I think they need to a life and think about the real world. She is a red blooded american girl and sometimes thing like this happen in private , but turn up because somebody is upset with them and wants to get even. So people of arlington get with the real world.
