NJ Dem with taste for S & M outed in kinky emails

Karen Golding Joe CryanA Garden State pol who was being groomed as the next chairman of the state Democratic party is facing questions today following an explosive report in the New York Post regarding his unorthodox (for a non-politician) sexual appetites.

According to the Post, Assemblyman Joe Cryan, of Union, sent more than 150 emails of a graphic nature to a lobbyist named Karen Golding. After Golding was arrested for stalking Cryan (at his behest) in 2006, she insisted that that the two had been intimately involved and claimed that she had the emails to prove it. Cryan vigorously denied the allegations, all the while using his political clout to suppress the evidence.

The racy correspondence might have remained unseen had hard copies not “landed on the driveway of a Post reporter” on Sunday.

The emails, the article notes, were written while Cryan was on the taxpayer’s dime “at one of his government jobs — either his $49,000-a-year Assembly gig or his $111,000-a-year post as Union County undersheriff.”

Among the excerpts fit for publication are the following:

What do you want to be spanked with? What will you wear to beg for it?

Available for a bj this morning? I’m really … horny.

Tell me about your preference … knees …  stairs? On all fours as I stand? Or hands tied to a bedpost as you stand? Dressed appropriately, of course.

In their exchanges, Cryan admitted he was mixing business with pleasure. On a Sunday in January 2004, for example, he sent more than a dozen emails to Golding from his legislative office in suburban Elizabeth. Other emails were sent from his state government account and the account assigned to him by the Union County Sheriff’s Office, according to court documents.

Over time, the Post notes, Cryan grew increasingly apprehensive about the paper trail he had created. On July 21, 2004, he wrote, “You delete these e-mails, right?” even as he cyber-fantasized about Golding dressing up like a hooker to surprise him the next week at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.

When the nature of the relationship changed, a harassed Cryan sent nearly two dozen police officers, a special-prosecutions unit, an intelligence unit, and a high-tech task force to arrest Golding in on stalking charges in February 2006.

Golding pleaded guilty in exchange for a sentence of two years’ probation. But last month, she filed the emails in Morristown Superior Court to reduce her sentence further.
