Senator Denies Auctioning Internship To Girls Gone Wild (Recap)


.
On Thursday Senator Denies Auctioning Internship To Girls Gone Wild was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) U.S. Senator Mark Pryor is adamant ... he did NOT agree to auction off the 4-week congressional internship allegedly purchased by Joe Francis ... and has told the FBI an IMPOSTOR is to blame.

Here's the back story -- Francis sent out a press release Tuesday claiming he won an internship in a charity auction ... and plans to gift the internship to the winner of his HDNet reality series, "The Search for the Hottest Girl in America."

Francis claims the internship will take place this summer in the office of U.S. Senator Mark Pryor (D Ark.) in Washington, D.C. According to the auction website, Francis paid $2,500 for the prize.

Problem is ... Pryor is now calling B.S. ... and a rep for the Senator tells TMZ, "Our office does not sell, auction or donate internships."

"We believe someone outside Senator Pryor's office has broken the law by fraudulently impersonating a U.S. Senator, fraudulently attempting to sell a government position and using the Senate seal without authorization."

"We have asked the FBI to fully investigate who is perpetrating this fraud against the senator and the U.S. Senate."

Calls to Joe have not been returned. The auction house had no comment. - more on this story
