Meet Stormy Daniels. Or, if your workplace is a bit prudish, meet her here. Ms. Daniels is a self-made businesswoman, has a hugely successful career in film, and has won awards as a director and screenwriter. She may or may not be running for Senate from Louisiana next year — she’s currently on a “listening tour” of the state — but there’s certainly a concerted group of believers encouraging her to do so.
Oh, and she’s a porn star.
That fact is, predictably, dominating news stories about her potential run for office. The equally predictable sideshow to these stories is the story of current senator David Vitter, who would be her opponent. In brief, he’s one of the strictest “values” conservatives in Congress, but in 2007 he was identified as a frequent client of a New Orleans escort service — one with a reported penchant for wearing adult diapers during the act. Pure tabloid sensationalism. Or is it?

BATON ROUGE, LA – Adult film star Stormy Daniels kicked off her bid to unseat U.S. Senator David Vitter on Wednesday in Baton Rouge with a “listening tour” where she fielded questions from the media.
Daniels stopped short of saying she was definitely running against Vitter, saying only that she was “drafted” to do so. She is considered one of the adult entertainment industry’s biggest movie stars.

Stormy Daniels, an adult film star considering a run for the U.S. Senate against David Vitter, says she supports the Fair Tax plan, which would replace all income and payroll taxes with a national retail sales tax. In an appearance today at the Roux House, Daniels admitted she wasn’t sure the plan was feasible, but said the current tax system penalizes success.
