LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor says he's asked the FBI to investigate who auctioned off an internship to his Washington office that the founder of "Girls Gone Wild" says he bought for the winner of a reality show.

Pryor on Wednesday denied a claim that the winner of a contest put on by the "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis will intern in Pryor's office for four weeks this summer. Pryor's office later said they believed someone was fraudulently impersonating a senator to offer the internship.

Francis announced the internship would be part of the prize package for the winner of "The Search for the Hottest Girl in America" after bidding on it at an online charity auction for a Los Angeles temple last weekend.
