The photo of him licking the other woman was taken at a 2008 Christmas party and was "still publicly viewable on Facebook" when City Pages posted it, but it has since been taken down. It's unclear who posted the photo on Facebook.
Mills, who is the likely challenger next year to Rep. Rick Nolan (D-MN) in Minnesota's Eighth Congressional District, said in a statement that it's "no secret that in the past I've let my hair down to have fun with family and friends."
"My wife and I have had many lighthearted moments in our lives but right now I am focused on my Congressional campaign and the disastrous effects of our overreaching government and sky high unemployment in the north eastern Minnesota," he said in the statement.
