Miss California -- Pants on Fire!

5/6/2009 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss California Carrie Prejean has lied to the pageant that feeds her.

TMZ has obtained an email Carrie sent to Keith Lewis, Co-Executive Director of Miss California USA. The email, sent yesterday, refers to the topless photo of her circulating on the Internet. The email reads: "This was when I was 17 years old. I was a minor. It was when I was first getting into the modeling world, being naive, and young. I shouldnt (sic) have taken the photo of me in my underwear. There are no other photos of me. This was the only one I took."

Carrie is not telling the truth. Last Sunday, someone sent TMZ 4 -- FOUR -- photos of Carrie without her top and in her panties. We did not publish the pics after her rep contacted us and said she was 17 when the pics were taken.

We told Keith Lewis about the 4 photos. His reaction: "I'm absolutely stunned. This completely changes things for us. Yesterday we thought she had explained things accurately. We need to revisit this issue with her."

Is she trying to imply that the photo was taken as part of a modeling gig? Because the one photo I did see looks like she's standing in a bathroom. In the background you can see shampoo bottles and the frame of a shower door.

Wa, wa. How I am I suppose to be taken seriusly as a supporter of "OTHER MARRIAGE" when I'm photographed topless.

What a dummy.

Past the question is the fact that she answered her question truthfully and honestly and got a ration for it from the Liberal Press and the current political climate. This will continue to happen to any one that voices views that are not in line with the current liberal bent of the country.

So what?!?!? She is a beauty contestent that shouldn't have to have a can of worms opened up on her for speaking her minds truth. Shame on those that have decided that they are America's moral police. This includes TMZ who, while entertaining, are nothing more than leeches on society and add fuel to the flame.

For once TMZ, you have a chance to stand tall and see the oppressive nature of this incident and call it out, no, you won't do that, there is no spine in the TMZ offices.

Leave the girl alone, she isn't miss anything now because someone somewhere decided that she should be destroyed for her views. This is the climate of change, this is the way things will be, until someone votes "I'm tired" of what is happening.

So what is the big deal? I see pics like those in every magazine, if Miss California's pics were considered nude. Then I guess all the super models have posed nude by the left wing extremists' standard. This is a left wing conpiracy and witch hunt for defending the freedom of speech aka the First Amendment rights! Where the hell is the ACLU when freedom of speech is being violated?

Mark my words. Same-sex marriage will be legal within the next couple of years. Its idiots like this chick, who pick and choose when to invoke their "Christian" beliefs, and when it comes to the rights of all U.S. citizens to be treated fairly under the law, its these hypocrits that ruin the lives of others that don't necessarily agree with their religious idiotology! When hypocrits like this choose to hold themselves as above the rest of us mere mortals, is when they come crashing down after all is said and done and the truth is revealed. She needs to take her phony ass home and shut the hell up.

#121 Pua - DON'T BLAME THE MEDIA!~!

TMZ is a Conduit not a Manufacturer for this sort of thing.....they have no more responsibility to "judge or stand-up" for this topic, than FOX does for the hate mongering that Sean Hannity does....!

And as for the "LIBERAL MEDIA"....that term was created during the election, just like "SOCIALIST" was attached to OBAMA because the Status quo didn't want an African American in Office....so they had to find "SOMETHIGN" to label him as...most people with an IQ over 20 can see thru that crap...but the Conservative RIGHT (if you wanna put labels on people) anointed him with those labels...
ALL MEDIA is BIASED one way or another...what makes me laugh is that one side tries SO hard to paint the other with the same brush they're painting with! ALL MEDIA TODAY, FOX, MSNBC, CBS, CNN, has a slant...and it's neither "LIBERAL, or ELITIST,", but many so-called Conservatives would like us to THINK that it's one-sided....as if they're not pushing the same bull crap!~!

Its actually liberal comments like 124 that show how ignorant you guys actually are. First, it is "hypocrites" not "hypocrits" which is mispelled a couple of times and is not just a typo.

Second,
The question was forced upon her by a gay person and not the other way around. It is the liberal who throws they're own views into christian faces not the other way around. How many christian stations are on TV? How long do you have to wait on the cartoon network for example before a big breasted women appears either in a comercial or even in an animated cartoon for children? Exactly, hypocrites!

Democrat = Anti - Christian, Constitution, Freedom, Free Market, Life!!!

If Harvey Levin is in current possession of pictures depicting a nude under 18 years of age girl, he is currently in violation of US and California anti-child pornography laws.

It doesn't matter if he posts them on his website or not, MERE KNOWING POSSESSION of them is a felony.

127. please open your eyes. Liberals have MSNBC, ABC NBC, CNN, HLN, washington post, NYT, Washington post....etc, etc, etc.

Conservatives have FOX. To be blind of this is completely bias and ignorant.

As for "Socialist" being made up....below doesnt even include the largest insurance company buyouts as well as all major banks and that the Treasury was given complete control on how and when to let go of these funds and what would be required to get them paid back - which btw the government will not allow to be paid back as of yet. You liberals need to stop watching K. overbite and get your facts straight!!!

Bank of America's $34 Billion Headache
http://www.reuters.com/article/bigMoney/idUS166454822220090506

"The amount of capital now needed by Bank of America could exceed what the bank can raise by selling assets or more shares to the public," writes the WSJ. And that could force BoA to convert the government's preferred shares (that it received for the first bailout) into common stock and leave you and me as the majority shareholders.

They Made this deal with NO INTENTION of paying back the US taxpayer, yet they make this comment below:

"While we do not expect a recovery of these funds, we are comfortable that in the totality of the arrangement, the Treasury and the American taxpayer are being fairly compensated," an Obama administration official told CNN Money.

Proof is below:

“Chrysler's dive into bankruptcy protection means the U.S. taxpayer won't be seeing the $7 billion in bailout money provided to the automaker ever again. CNN Money reports that the company understood, "the Treasury would forgive a $4 billion bridge loan given to Chrysler in the closing days of the Bush administration, a $300 million fee on that loan, and the $3.2 billion in financing approved last week by the Obama administration to fund Chrysler's operations during bankruptcy."
