District Attorney Finally Admits His Adult Film Past

Five days before his re-election bid for district attorney in upstate New York, Mark Suben was adamant he had never appeared in pornographic movies. He told the Syracuse Post-Standard the allegation was part of a smear campaign by his opponent.

Said Suben: "My response to that is, it is simply not true. I did no such thing... This would cost me the election and ruin my career."

On Friday, Suben admitted he lied, holding off a story long enough to win re-election.

What forced his hand was a Youtube video that identified him as an actor who went by the name of Gus Thomas and performed in 12 porn movies in the 1970s.
