Damn! This Photo Is Going to Gain Votes For the Democrat

, , , ,

Amy Biviano, née Nabors, posed as one of the “Women of the Ivy League” for Playboy in 1995.


Amy Biviano, Democratic candidate for Spokane Valley’s 4th District House of Representatives, has been “outed” for having posed for Playboy magazine’s “Women of the Ivy League” in 1995. She was a student at Yale at the time.

The lucky candidate even attracted coverage by Xbiz Newswire, a porno industry news feed.

Curiously, Ms. Biviano is not locatable in the on-line Yale Alumni Directory under either “Biviano” or “Nabors.”

Nonetheless, there really is a contemporary Yale Herald article on-line which identifies her as a member of the Class of 1997, so I expect the Alumni Directory has just made some kind of mistake.


Apparently, Ms. Biviano, at the time foresaw the possibility of her Playboy pictures coming to light later in life, and discussed that possibility in the Yale Herald.

Picture this…you are applying for a job for which you know that you’re perfect. It is unthinkable that your experience, your high grades, and your real interest in the company could be disregarded. Yet, as the decision is made, somehow, you are looked over. Why? The answer has nothing to do with your college education and everything to do with your college behavior – you posed for Playboy, and now your job market will be forever limited.

The above scenario is every Yalie’s worst nightmare – being rejected just because of one stupid, rash college prank. You know that you would never make the same mistake twice if you had the chance. Alright, so I did pose for Playboy. Do I feel that one day the above scenario will apply to me? No. You might ask, “Why not?” Do I have career plans that allow for borderline behavior and overlook my indiscretions? Well, originally I did. I had planned to spend my life doing anthropological research on sex; thus, Playboy may have even enhanced my career. But now? Now, among other options, I am considering law, obviously a less-forgiving field.

So why do I still consider posing for Playboy to have been the right move for me? What I have learned this summer in the face of this scandal has taught me more about myself and the others around me than I could ever have learned by sticking to my role as the sweet little girl next door. …

[D]o I believe that my future might be affected by posing for Playboy? Yes, I believe that it will. But, it has made a positive contribution to my life – I gained a sense of self-reliance which I lacked before the posing scandal. Yes, it was fun to have my five minutes of fame both on the Yale campus and on the national scene. It is a nice little boost to the ego to know that some people consider me to be attractive enough to be in Playboy. But of course I know now, and I knew when I first chose to pose, that these benefits will fade, and they will only be remembered by a few people searching through dusty archives. However, posing for Playboy has permanently changed me by making me think a little bit differently about myself – I’m now more of a risk-taker, fear social approval less, and know a bit more about what I’m capable of. I may never do something this controversial again, but it’s nice to know that I could and did.

Amy Nabors, SM ’97, is an anthropology major.


Despite the alarmed tone of the liberal news coverage, I think the publicity (and the exposed boobs photo) will do nothing but win admiring 4th district male votes for the candidate.

Fortunately Spokane is about the only place in Washington State where a Democrat boob isn’t a shoo-in.


Considering the Democrats view of having the government give free stuff for votes this may bring new meaning to the government tit.


Posing for Playboy is not a “rash” college “prank.” There’s nothing about the process that involves haste, a defining feature of “rash.” It’s not like they show up at a party, get girls drunk, and trick them into posing. I rememer when Playboy showed up at my undergrad school for a Girls of the Big 10 feature. There was a looooooooong line of applicants. That first part took hours of them waiting in line. Then they had to come BACK a second time to get evaluated, I assume, mostly unclad. THEN, the photoshoot is not exactly a quickie with and instamatic. A professional photographer would probably spend an hour or two shooting each girl, if not more. She’d probably spend an hour plus in costume and make up before hand. And a lot of time waiting around while the shoot was set up. Please tell me where “rash” fits in here? Unless it was a skin rash…


Remember, you can advance to the next level only if you reach the finish
before your energy levels run out. A quick search online for free online games just for fun will yield several results out of which one can select their most
enjoyable game and proceed to enjoy their past time.

Success at games requires many skills necessary in the real world: patience, problem
solving, risk taking, collaboration and dealing with failure.
The most important aspect about these is the
fun element and there is no shortage of fun to choose from.
This can make Boggle a quick filler, which might be
played in almost any group, even with individuals who ordinarily don’t like word games.
