Co-director of Miss California USA Keith Lewis seemed to place much of the blame for Carrie Prejean’s troubles on the groups that have taken her as spokesman. “Shame for taking this young woman and exploiting her to further your own agenda,” Lewis said at a Monday press conference.

Prejean’s topless photos were not the main concern for Miss California USA directors. “The severity of nudity in the one photo is not the issue,” said co-director Shannon Moakler. “The fact that she entered the pageant and admitted it is.”

“She entered the contest under false pretenses,” said Moakler.
