a 10 of 10
I usually don't follow news items about celebrity marital relations, or about non-local Senate races. But these two great tastes certainly taste great together when the Senate candidate is Illinois Republican Jack Ryan, his ex-wife is "Star Trek" alum Jeri Ryan, and she alleged during divorce and child custody proceedings that he tried to force her to have sex with him at raunch clubs:
Jeri Lynn Ryan charged during a custody hearing that Ryan took her on surprise trips to New Orleans, New York and Paris in 1998, and that he insisted she go to sex clubs with him on each trip.

She said that after going out to dinner with Ryan in New York, he demanded that she go to a club with him.

"It was a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling," she said. She said Ryan asked her to perform a sexual act while others watched, and she refused.

She said they left and Ryan apologized to her and said it was out of his system. But then, she said, he took her to Paris and again took her to a sex club.
For once, I wish I was a Trekkie. I have a feeling I would get so much more titillation out of this if I owned a pair of Spock ears.
