Would You Vote for Stormy Daniels?

Stormy Daniels for SenateA group called Draft Stormy in Louisiana is trying to encourage Wicked contract star Stormy Daniels to challenge the Republican incumbent David Vitter for his senate seat. Vitter espouses very conservative policies, but has been implicated in the D.C. Madam case, making him another in a long line of hypocritical conservative politicians ensnared in sex scandals.

The only even marginally successful porn star-turned-politician that I know of is the former Italian parliamentarian Ilona Staller (aka Cicciolina). American porn stars who’ve attempted to enter politics and failed have included the likes of California’s Marey Carey and Nevada’s Mimi Miyagi.

I don’t know whether U.S. is ready for a porn star politician (I suspect not), but to be honest, if I had the choice between Stormy Daniels and David Vitter, I’d give Stormy a chance. I met her a few years ago and found her to be very intelligent, thoughtful and interesting person. I don’t think that having sex on camera should disqualify a person from holding public office, especially in a country where a pro wrestler can be elected governor of a state (I’m talking about you, Jesse Ventura).

What do you think? Would you vote for Stormy? Do you think she’ll even agree to run?
