The Old 'Socialist Hairshirt Defense'

The former head of the Scottish Socialist Party can't possibly be guilty of adultery, his wife testified in court, because none of his (many) accusers has noted his excess of, um, back hair.
"He looks like a gorilla. He has more hair on his body than on his head," she told the jury.
The wife of former MSP Tommy Sheridan made those remarks on his behalf as Sheridan seeks £200,000 in damages against the News of the World, which alleged he "cheated on his wife, used Cupids, a swingers' club in Manchester, and indulged in group sex."

A Sheridan predecessor here.
