Because Linda McMahon brags about her experience as CEO of the WWE as good experience to bring to the U.S. Senate, it’s interesting that she downplays some of the more raunchy shows she put on, such as the one where she teamed up with Joe Francis of “Girls Gone Wild.”

The 2003 event is another chapter in WWE’s checkered history that has raised eyebrows as McMahon has pursued her self-funded campaign against Democratic nominee Richard Blumenthal, a contest that the latest polls have shown in a dead heat.

Joe Francis knew the WWE was the place to be.

“We have an incredible partnership with the WWE,” Joe Francis, who founded the production company behind Girls Gone Wild and who spent time in jail on charges that he and the company didn’t properly document the ages of some of the young girls who exposed themselves in their videos, was quoted saying in the Hollywood Reporter in February 2003. “They own the pay-per-view space, so there’s no better people to be in business with.”

“It’s real girls and there’s nothing else like it. I like girls and I really like them naked and I thought other guys would, too,” Francis was quoted telling the Monitor of South Texas.

The mayor of Panama City, FL threatened to arrest everyone involved if the pay-per-view event came to his city. One has to wonder how Senator Jim DeMint would feel about his new potential Republican colleague.
