 BEN AFFLECK feared dirty politics would expose his own dirty laundry – and that’s the real reason he’s decided not to run for the U.S. Senate, insiders report.

The politically active 40-year-old father of three was highly touted to run from Massachusetts and replace Senator JOHN KERRY if he’s confirmed as Secretary of State, but Ben’s worried his badboy past and wild lifestyle will be dredged up – alcohol abuse that forced him into rehab, illegal underground poker games, and a highly publicized drug, booze and sex orgy with strippers!

The “Argo” star/ director has carefully crafted a new straight-arrow image and will shelve his deep passion for politics to shield his children from seeing Daddy dragged through the mud bath – until they’re older, anyway.
