His résumé includes four years in the U.S. Senate, a seriously homophobic voting record, and a tab with “D.C. Madam” Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

Her résumé includes such prestigious titles as Tit Happens and Super Size Meat.

Republican U.S. senator David Vitter of Louisiana and porn star Stormy Daniels may seem to have little in common, but if Daniels gets her way, she’s going to challenge Vitter for his Senate seat.

Daniels sat down with WGNO-TV reporter Michael Hill to talk about her candidacy and her stance on several social issues, including marriage equality.

“One of the joys of being an American is equal treatment,” she says. “The big debate against gay marriage is that it’s a sin, but that’s between the couple in question and their higher power. It’s not the government’s decision. Do we really want to spend all this money fighting couples from getting a piece of paper? … And by the way, telling them they can’t get married isn’t going to magically make them un-gay.”

Daniels also says she’s pro-choice, but more important, is pro-condom, adding that abstinence-only education is unrealistic and that no one is actually pro-abortion.

Challenging Vitter will be an uphill battle — Louisiana is an overwhelmingly Republican state where voters are expected to take issue with Daniels’s background in adult entertainment.
