Hey, how about some sleeze?

From The Tennesean,

Beleaguered country singer Mindy McCready finds herself in the center of a media storm once again, but this one promises to be unlike anything she’s weathered.

On the line is the national reputation of baseball player Roger Clemens, as well as his defamation lawsuit against a former trainer who has said Clemens used steroids.

In a Monday front-page story, The New York Daily News reported that McCready and Clemens had a decade-long romantic affair that began in 1990, after he met the 15-year-old at a Florida karaoke bar when he was a 28-year-old married Boston Red Sox pitcher.

Clemens’ lawyer, Rusty Hardin, confirmed a long-term relationship, but told the News it was not sexual. However, McCready later released a statement saying she could not refute anything in the story.

The allegations could be damaging to Clemens because his honesty remains central to his testimony about alleged steroid use to Congress. The implications of dishonesty about the affair could bleed over to his denials of steroid use, as well. “If you lie once, will you lie again?” asked Mel Antonen, USA Today baseball writer.

Slime all around for Clemens.
