Ben Quayle

 

 
Former U.S. Representative for Arizona's 3rd congressional district. A member of the Republican Party, he is the son of the 44th vice president of the United States, Dan Quayle. Quayle was a member of the Tea Party movement, which had many of its members swept into office during the 2010 elections. Quayle's prior involvement with the controversial rumor and gossip website "DirtyScottsdale.com" complicated his run for office. According to the site's founder, Quayle was one of the "original contributors" to the site, which covered Scottsdale nightlife with features including sexy photos of women, and was the predecessor to the gossip website TheDirty.com. Quayle initially denied the rumors, before admitting several weeks later that he did, in fact, write material for the site under the pen name Brock Landers.
