The release of scores of kinky emails written by a powerful New Jersey Democrat to a lobbyist has sparked an investigation by prosecutors in Sussex County, according to reports.
Joe Cryan, an assemblyman from Union County, was a rising star in the state's Democratic Party. Until 2010, he was majority leader in the state assembly and state party chairman.
The New York Post published an enormous cache of sexually salacious emails allegedly written by Cryan documenting the details of a sado-masochistic affair he had with lobbyist Karen Golding.
The emails, written between 2004 and 2006, spell out Cryan's desires for spanking, bondage, public sex and oral sex from the West Orange woman and recount many of their sexual adventures.
