October 2006: RICHMOND, Oct. 27 -- Virginia Sen. George Allen (R) has accused his Democratic opponent, James Webb, of writing inappropriate sex scenes and demeaning descriptions of women in his fictional books, the latest character attack in a close and nasty campaign.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/10/27/AR2006102701000.html
