ARLINGTON, Ore. (AP) – Mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist, whose MySpace photos of her posing in black lingerie on a fire engine put this Columbia River town of 600 into something of a pother, told ABC’s 20/20 Friday night that she’s not stepping down.

“They’re going to have to drag me out of here,” she said.

The pictures were taken before she thought of running for mayor, said Kontur-Gronquist, 42, the first woman to hold the unpaid position. She said she had permission from the fire chief to use the engine and had intended to use the photos in a contest about fitness in women.

Federal Communications Commission finesĀ 52 ABC affiliates a total of $1.4 Million for showing nude buttocks on NYPD Blue. The episode, aired Feb. 25, 2003, included a shot of a woman’s “nude buttocks,” which the FCC found “titillating and shocking.” Commissioners said network cameras dwelled on the woman’s backside too long and too close up to for decency standards. It faulted stations in Middle America for showing the episode between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., a “safe-harbor” window for family programming. http://www.billingsgazette.net/articles/2008/01/30/news/state/35-fccfine.txt
