In a statement released Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015, a group calling itself Impact Team said the site's owners had not bowed to their demands. "Now everyone gets to see their data," the statement said.

(The Washington Post) – Two Republican politicians from Louisiana took the initiative and confessed Thursday that their names are on a list of clients for the cheating Web site Ashley Madison. But both were quick to say that while they know what people might be thinking, it wasn’t that, the old “I can explain everything” line.

Louisiana GOP executive director Jason Doré told NOLA.com that an account created under his name and his former personal credit card billing address was used for “opposition research” at his law firm, Doré Jeansonne.

“As the state’s leading opposition research firm, our law office routinely searches public records, online databases and websites of all types to provide clients with comprehensive reports,” Doré said to NOLA.com via text message. “Our utilization of this site was for standard opposition research. Unfortunately, it ended up being a waste of money and time.”

Baton Rouge Metro Councilman Ryan Heck also went for the preemptive strike, admitting on Facebook he “went to Ashley Madison as a joke 5 years ago. Never went back,” he assured his constituents. And why would he need to anyway, he added, with the hashtag “#smokinghotwife.”
