Meet Stormie Janzen, a scheduler for Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who just so happens to be “single, straight, and a Scorpio.” Janzen, a scheduler in Sessions’ DC Senate office, maintained a personal site MySpace.com where she dished her thoughts on “dating, hanging out with girlfriends, and one of her biggest turn-ons — men in button-fly jeans”. Given the millions of MySpace.com users, her anonymous site hardly rates as unusual. In fact unless you knew where to find it, it was pretty much invisible to the world outside the confines of the MySpace community.
All of the Montgomery, Alabama now knows about Janzen’s social networking and journal site because a story about it was featured on the front page of the Saturday edition of The Montgomery Advertiser, Sessions’ aide revealed on sexy Internet diary
WASHINGTON — An aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions agreed Friday to shut down her Web diary, which included a provocative photo of her bare midriff in unzipped jeans, after the office heard about a complaint, the senator’s spokesman said.
Stormie Janzen would not speak to a reporter Friday, but the blog indicated she was logged onto the site Friday morning during Senate business hours.
…The Montgomery Advertiser on Thursday received an e-mail about Janzen’s blog on MySpace.com, a popular site that allows users to post details about their lives and to connect with friends. By Friday afternoon, the photo was taken down and entry to parts of Janzen’s site were restricted to “blog owner friends only.”
Janzen, 34, who describes herself as “single, straight and a Scorpio,” did not appear to use the blog to comment on congressional business.
She entered observations on dating, hanging out with girlfriends, and one of her biggest turn-ons — men in button-fly jeans.The funny thing about Janzen’s “blog” (term used extremely loosely) is that our Google overlords know not of this Stormie Janzen MySpace site. Unless you’ve been given the address, there’s zero chance you just stumble upon it when looking for Stormie Janzen online.
Chances are high that someone politically opposed to Session sent this information to The Advertiser, knowing they’d do a reactive fluff piece, just like they did. Perhaps The Advertiser should do a little investigation into the background and possible motivations of the e-mailer…
Update: The Ambiguously Gay Duo over at Wonkette also struck out in looking for the site, then magically got a copy of the alleged thong shot. It’s tre disappointing. I’d venture to guess that the sender was also the tipster. Perhaps the Duo should follow up on their source…
