Ben Quayle Dirty Scottsdale Link?

Ben Quayle, the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle and an Arizona Republican congressional candidate, denied Tuesday that he once was a regular contributor to Dirty Scottsdale, a website that chronicled the city’s clubs and nightlife and the predecessor to the popular gossip website TheDirty.com.

The site’s founder, Nik Richie — whose real name is Hooman Karamian — told POLITICO that Quayle was “one of the original contributors” to the site when it started in 2007. After being contacted by POLITICO, Richie on Monday published a post describing what he said was Quayle’s role in the creation of the website along with a campaign photograph of him.

The idea behind Dirty Scottsdale was simple: Solicit photographs of Scottsdale club goers, post them online, and comment on the appearance and behavior of people in the pictures.

“We are looking to bring you the best trash this city has to offer,” the site’s original description said.

Richie said Quayle wrote under the alias “Brock” and launched a popular standing feature called “Brock’s Chick” in which he documented his quest to find the “hottest chick in Scottsdale.” Quayle published eight to 10 blog posts on the site over three or four months, Richie said
