The question of the day is whether or not Miss California, Carrie Prejean, violated her contract with the state pageant. They are certainly trying to make it seem like she did, and are working to strip her of the Miss California crown.
Pageant officials Tuesday said they are looking into whether Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and by posing semi-nude when she was a 17-year-old model.
Pageant spokesman Roger Neal said Tuesday it appears Prejean has violated the 12-page contract all prospective contestants were required to sign before competing in the November state contest. The contract prohibits Miss California from making personal appearances, giving interviews or making commercials without permission from pageant officials. In the last 10 days, Prejean has made televised appearances at her San Diego church and on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage, a group opposed to same-sex marriage.
The contact also contains a clause asking participants to say whether they have conducted themselves “in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards.” As an example, it asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude.
My guess is at this point, Miss CA probably doesn’t care. It seems the whole pageant deal only works if you agree with the judges’ personal views anyway, at least in this case. Props to her for sticking by her beliefs.
Yet my comments defending traditional marriage have led to intimidation tactics that seek to undermine my reputation and somehow silence me and my beliefs, as if opinion is only a one-way street.”

I bet there have never been more people so interested in a beauty pageant or it’s contestants before. I always thought it was kind of a girls-watch-on-Sunday-night-type-of-thing.
