In a press conference last night in Tacoma, Washington Elyse Umemoto took no blame for the release of several racy photos of herself on the Internet.
You can watch the video on TMZ, as woman that was crowned Miss Washington 2007 says the pictures were "stolen electronically" by someone she trusted.
Elyse Umemoto is not as innocent as she appears to be in this picture.
Umemoto added that the photos were shot over two years ago, as the Executive Director of the beauty pageant said the matter has been referred to authorities for investigation. We're sure they have nothing better to do.
Meanwhile, Umemoto will be on hand Saturday night to crown her successor. In the age of digital cameras, let's hope the folks in Washington choose someone who is smart enough not to pose for any risque photos at all.
