The District Attorney for Cortland County, Mark Suben, today admitted that he lied to reporters in the run up to this year's election and, yes, he was in fact a porn star in the 1970s. Suben, a Democrat who defeated Republican defense attorney Keith Dayton 9,815-7,507 earlier this month, admitted to his exciting past in a press conference in which he refused to take any questions.

Suben had previously been asked about his acting history but denied he'd made any skin flicks. However, when the above video, and a CNY story about it, showed up on YouTube he had little choice but to come forward. The hairy DA let it all out this afternoon at 3 p.m. with his wife in the room. Here's what he had to say, after discussing helping criminal youths become productive members of society:

"I used bad judgment myself in my youth. Recently, materials have been circulating (indicating) that I was an actor in the adult film industry years ago in New York.

"Those allegations are true. I was an actor in adult films in the early 1970s. I also acted in other venues, off-Broadway, soap operas.

"A few weeks ago, when asked, I denied this to members of the press. I regret that and I apologize. I was shocked to be confronted by this so many years later.

"I was embarrassed for my family and friends who have stood by me. I also denied my actions to my family, my friends and my staff. After that brief period of my life, I found my calling in the law, particularly in prosecution, and have dedicated my life and my career to doing what I've been elected to do - protecting my home community.

"I will continue to do that. I cannot defend my bad judgment, both my involvement years ago and my denial of it recently."

At the moment it does not appear that Suben—who appeared in films like Deep Throat Part 2 (as Russian Agent/American Agent), Lecher (as Ray), The Love Witch (as The Defendant), It Happened In Hollywood (as Boris Ballsoff) and Doctor's Teenage Dilemma (as Dr. Cordova/Jose - uncredited)—has any plans to resign over this affair.
