Stormy Waters For Senator

By | May 9, 2009

Stormy DanielsOr is it Stormy Daniels – these porn performers do have a tendency to use a lot of aliases. Anyway, if you didn’t know she’s running for the senate. Not the first time this has happened of course and not limited to the US political arena. Cicciolina (Ilona Staller) famously ran for office in Italy in 1979 as a candidate for the Green Party “Lista Del Sole” and has campaigned for elections to various other positions since then.

Is this a genuine aspiration towards public service via a political office or a way of furthering Stormy’s adult career? Hopefully the former as running for office carries a huge amount of responsibility.

Pity some of the UK politicians seem too intent on milking the parliamentary expenses system to realise that. Maybe parliament should be filled with porn stars, at least they’re honest about what they do.

And it wouldn’t be the first time an ex-adult performer has held a senior office, Betty Boothroyd, first female speaker of the commons was once a tiller girl.
