Every woman knows not to wear dark underwear under a light-coloured skirt. It’s a major fashion faux pas.But we’ve never heard of it becoming a reason not to elect a county prosecutor.

Until now that is.

Hocking County, Ohio, Prosecutor Laina Fetherolf is running for re-election amid some really ridiculous rumours she took her underwear off, entered it into evidence, and argued a case commando-style after a judge chastised her for wearing dark panties under a light-coloured dress, Above The Law reported Friday.

But, according to an interview Fetherolf gave to The Columbus Dispatch, the story is a bogus lie made up by her opponent.

Fetherolf admits having a “wardrobe malfunction” in court. But she never threw her underwear on the judge’s desk, Fetherolf said, adding that she asked the state elections commission to call out opponent Jason Sarver for lying about the supposed incident, the Dispatch reported Monday morning.

“I was willing to laugh it off until the story began to spread … I’ve heard about it from multiple people. Everybody in Logan is talking about this story he made up,” Fetherolf told the Dispatch.

The commission dismissed her complaint.

But Judge John T. Wallace is sticking by her, telling the Dispatch “no panties have ever been placed on my bench by anyone, including her.”
