Porn star Stormy Daniels, the star of such films as ‘Operating Desert Stormy,’ launches a ‘listening tour’ next week, to ‘meet with Louisiana men and women and listen to the issues and concerns they struggle with every day’

Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana is facing a potentially risque challenge next year. Porn star Stormy Daniels is considering running for the Republican’s seat in 2010.

Daniels, the star of such films as “Operating Desert Stormy,” launches a “listening tour” across the state next week, to “meet with Louisiana men and women and listen to the issues and concerns they struggle with every day.”

Daniels is not affiliated with a political party, but her listening tour will focus on the economy, working women and child protection.

Fans have been wooing the 29-year-old to run for office by launching the Web site, http://www.draftstormy.com, which calls the 2010 race an “opportunity to start with a clean slate, to elect a representative that we can be proud of, who will work tirelessly, and who will challenge the status quo.”

The site features the clever slogan: It’s the economy, sexy.

Vitter is no stranger to the sex industry. Vitter confessed in 2007 to “a very serious sin in my past,” referring to his link to the so-called D.C. Madam.

Vitter’s telephone number appeared on the old phone records of Pamela Martin and Associates, the prostitution ring run in the nation’s capital by Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

“Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling,” Vitter said at the time of the revelation. “Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there, with God and them.”

A Harvard graduate and Rhodes scholar, Vitter, 46, was elected to his current office in 2004, becoming the first Republican from Louisiana elected to the Senate since Reconstruction.

Previously, he represented Louisiana’s 1st Congressional District in the House from 1999 to 2004. He had taken the seat held by former Rep. Robert Livingston, who nearly became the House speaker until his own extramarital affair became public.
