Donna Rice is another love interest turned political item.
In 1987, Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart taunted reporters to check up on his conduct after rumors surfaced that he was having an affair.
Soon a photo emerged of Hart sitting on a dock with Rice on his lap near a yacht named Monkey Business.
That ended Hart's campaign.
Rice became a spokesmodel for No Excuses jeans, said she turned down big bucks from Playboy and went on to serve as an advocate for children's online safety.
