A U.S. Senate candidate from Connecticut is taking some heat for the name of her boat.

Linda McMahon, a Republican, has a 47-foot performance powerboat named "Sexy Bitch." The campaign of Republican Rep. Rob Simmons, who is running against McMahon in the Senate GOP primary, e-mailed a column about the boat's name to reporters last week, The Hill newspaper reports.

McMahon stepped down last year as CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Former Democratic Sen. Gary Hart was linked to a yacht infamously named "Monkey Business." Photos later showed the married presidential candidate aboard the boat with a 28-year-old model named Donna Rice, promptly ending his hopes for the presidency.
