Girls Gone Wild Vs Senator Pryor

Joe Francis on CNN

 

Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis announced in a press release that he had won an internship in a charity auction. This internship was scheduled to take place this summer in the office of U.S. Senator Mark Pryor in Washington, D.C. However, Senator Mark Pryor is now claiming that the internship and the charity that auctioned the prize off is a hoax. Noting that “Our office does not sell, auction or donate internships. We believe someone outside Senator Pryor’s office has broken the law by fraudulently impersonating a U.S. Senator, fraudulently attempting to sell a government position and using the Senate seal without authorization. We have asked the FBI to fully investigate who is perpetrating this fraud against the senator and the U.S. Senate.”

 

In an exclusive interview with CNN, Joe sat down and talked about his intentions with the internship. Saying he not only thought it was a great opportunity for the winner but, also really fun! Another interesting point that CNN brings up is that Pryor has visited the Temple before noting that, “he was the guest of a congregate, Chad Brownstein.”

 

Brownstein now admits in an apology letter to Senator Pryor that it was his fault for the misunderstanding stating “I thought it might be possible to auction off an unpaid month-long summer internship for a high school student with your office…I said that if the person whose bid was selected was forever reason not approved, the Temple would give the money back. I didn’t realize that the item would be posted before I had a change to check with your office. Nor did I realize that it would be posted without the caveat that the person would have to be approved. Unfortunately there was a miscommunication.”

 

While the money has been returned, Francis is still waiting for an apology from the Senator who, refuses to acknowledge what went down.
