A sad? update: Stormy Daniels will NOT run for senate.April 20, 2010
Stormy Daniels (above) is not going to be running for senate against David Vitter of Louisiana.
After a long flirtation with entering politics, adult film star Stormy Daniels announced she will not make a run for the U.S. Senate in her home state of Louisiana.
“The simple fact that David Vitter has $5 million in his bank account pretty much says it all. Against that shear accumulation of special interest dollars, I have no legitimate means of winning a race for the United States Senate under these circumstances. As a businesswoman, I know that better than anyone,” Daniels says in a statement.
She continues: “I am not running for the US Senate because I am an adult entertainment star. I am not running for the US Senate for the same reason that so many dedicated patriots do not run — I can’t afford it. On this day in particular, we should all take time to reflect on the loss to our country that comes from the sad fact that those who may truly desire to contribute to our society are barred by those who only seek to unjustly profit off it.”
That kind of sucks, not only could I make A TON of jokes between now and the primary, but Republicans passed up the opportunity to have a super hot member of the senate. And it’s not like some members of congress don’t have a checkered passed, sexually. Just ask the senator she was going to challenge. Just ask Michael Steele.Who needs clubs when you’ve got a direct pipeline to the girls? I think Daniels could have raised the money, she’d just have to do 7-10 extra movies a day. She’d have done a great job as the Republican Senate Whip.
Ok I’ve taken this a bit too far.
