Directors cite work with NOM, semi-nude photos
The directors of the Miss California USA pageant are looking into whether title holder Carrie Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and by posing semi-clad when she was a teenage model.
Pageant spokesman Roger Neal said Tuesday it appears the 21-year-old Prejean has run afoul of several sections of the 12-page contract prospective contestants were required to sign before competing in the state contest.
The contract contains a clause asking participants whether they have conducted themselves "in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards" and if they've ever been photographed nude or partially nude.
Prejean spokeswoman Melany Ethridge says she couldn't comment on the contract because she's unfamiliar with its contents.
