A celebrity gossip website on Friday posted a photo that it claims shows Inland Rep. Mary Bono Mack in a “playful, but compromising” position.

In the photo posted on, a woman is seen with her tongue extended toward the chest of another woman. Both women are clothed in the image, which the website said is four years old.

The website claims that the woman with her tongue out is Edra Blixseth, a well known business woman who, according to campaign finance records, has given tens of thousands of dollars in donations to Republicans, including Bono Mack, R-Palm Springs, and her late husband, former Rep. Sonny Bono.

The other woman is purportedly Bono Mack, who is beginning her eighth term in Congress representing Moreno Valley, Hemet, Murrieta and Riverside County’s desert communities.

“It raises the question, what kind of people push a story like this?” Bono Mack chief of staff Frank Cullen said in a written statement. He did not elaborate.
