The BadBoys Babes
Paula Parkinson: "Washington is basically a very horny city. For one thing, there are more women here than men. And men can be jerks with women and get away with it, because men are so scarce around here."--1980 "If I'd slept with everybody who asked me, I never would have gotten out of bed." [For other pearls of wisdom, check the Quote Board].
Lobbyist Paula Parkinson posed nude for Playboy in 1980 in a photo essay called "Beauty and Bureaucracy." She was a lobbyist for farm-crop insurance programs in January 1980 when she to a trip to Florida with three Congressmen--The Honorable Tom Railsback (Republican-Illinois), The Honorable Tom Evans (Republican-Delaware), and The Honorable Dan Quayle (Republican-Indiana). A good time was had by all.
With Dan Quayle: "We flirted a lot and danced extremely close and suggestively. He said he wanted to make love." Quayle vehemently denied all this, especially when it came out in 1988 when he was chosen for the Vice-President slot with George H. W. Bush. Marilyn Quayle, Dan's wife, had the best answer: "Anybody who knows Dan Quayle, knows he'd rather play golf than have sex any day." Ouch!

Is she a Democrat or Republican: "I don't do Democrats!" [For other pearls of wisdom, check the Quote Board].
Besides, Paula already had a boyfriend: The Honorable Tom Evans of Delaware.
