That's One Mess the ShamWow Can't Clean Up

Spokesman Arrested in Prostitute-Assault Bust

By Published on .

If you're a reader of gossip sites and blogs, you're already familiar with the great ShamPow scandal of 2009. The short version, as detailed by The Smoking Gun, goes like this: Vince Shlomi, the energetic spokesman for ShamWow, hires a hooker in Florida. She bites him and won't let go. He hits her in the face until she does. The police are called, mugshots are taken, the interwebs go nuts. Check out The Smoking Gun for all the gory details. And, if you want a dose of Scientology conspiracy theorizing, check out this post by Gawker.
