Town Council Candidate: So what if I own porn site?

DAVIE, Florida — A Town Council candidate admitted Wednesday that he owned an Internet pornography site but said it has no bearing on whether he should be elected March 13.

“It’s registered to me, and I developed the page. . . . [But] this is a personal issue involving consenting adults. This campaign should be about issues,” said Philip Busey, who is running for the District 3 seat in western Davie.

The combative campaign pits Busey, an associate professor at the University of Florida, against incumbent council member Susan Starkey and former council member Terry Santini, an accountant.

Early Wednesday, Busey’s site featured links to 20 pornography services.

Shortly after Busey was questioned about the site Wednesday, it was altered to feature links to Miami Beach tourism Web addresses.

“I changed the content on them so it is no longer objectionable,” said Busey, who teaches and researches turfgrass science.

“There are no links to porno. I have 30 or 40 other domains, and none are problematic now. They are mostly about turf.”

The Web site is registered to a Fort Lauderdale post-office box that Busey also uses for Internet education sites related to his work at UF’s Davie agricultural school campus. Van Waddill, director of the campus, could not be reached for comment.

Busey said he registered the site almost eight years ago to advocate for nudism on Florida’s beaches but changed it to a pornography link. He did not say why.

“I don’t think it is relevant in this campaign,” said Busey, whose plank includes preserving mobile-home parks, encouraging more affordable homes and blocking The Commons retail/office project along Interstate 75.

His two opponents said his side business was an issue.

“Personal lives do reflect on political lives,” Santini said when told of the site.

“I know I wouldn’t vote for a candidate with this type of business,” Starkey said.

Busey is also a Democratic Party committeeman.

“He is an elected committeeman. The last time I checked, running nude Web sites is not a rationale for removal from the post,” Broward Democratic Chairman Mitch Ceasar said.

Busey said he “makes pennies or maybe a dollar a day” from viewers who click on one of his Web site’s links. He said he earned $1.37 on Tuesday and 32 cents Monday.
