Gillibrand Wishes for Less Attention to Her Looks

After Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) called her the "hottest" member of the U.S. Senate and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said she was "stunning," the Albany Times Union asked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) if she feels she's being "over-sexualized."

Said Gillibrand: "No. You know, Harry Reid was making a joke. He also complimented my work with him on reg reform. I think the mayor was being nice. He was just being kind. So, of course women like candidates and like people, to focus on the work that they're doing and of course we would prefer more reporting on the legislation we're fighting for and what we've accomplished, but you know, at the end of the day...."

Then, the newspaper said she sighed.
