Senator: No ‘Girls Gone Wild’ intern this summer

- Associated Press - Wednesday, April 25, 2012

LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (AP) - Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor says his internship program isn't going wild.

Pryor on Wednesday denied a claim that the winner of a contest put on by the "Girls Gone Wild" video empire will intern in Pryor's office this summer.

"Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis says he announced the internship would be part of the prize package for the winner of "The Search for the Hottest Girl in America" after bidding on it at a Los Angeles-based fundraiser last weekend. Francis refused to identify the charity or say how much he paid.

But Pryor's office says it doesn't sell or auction internships and calls the announcement a "hoax." A Pryor spokesman says he doesn't know what Francis thinks he bought but "he did not buy anything from our office, period."
