Campaign to destroy Miss California escalates

“I am a Christian, and I am a model,” Prejean said in a statement released overnight to the media. “Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be.”…

The picture was deemed too racy to be shown on the TODAY Show.

It and the others in the set may also be too revealing for the Miss California pageant, according to a report filed for TODAY by NBC News’ Miguel Almaguer, who reported that Prejean’s contract with the pageant prohibits her from being photographed “in a state of partial or total nudity.”
