I almost feel guilty for following Nowdy’s last excellent post on the State Farm video game with one involving a political race in 2010 but my original non-substantive post on Stormy Daniels has racked up almost 1,000 page views and to the extent David Vitter is a hypocrite of biblical proportions I figured we’d circle back to last month and the news Stormy is taking a serious looksie at a run against Vitter. While Stormy’s on screen exploits have gained her the most fame, a lesser known fact is that Ms Daniels is evidently an astute business woman as well.
The Times Picayune has the story:
Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels announced today that she is forming a committee to explore a potential campaign against Sen David Vitter, R-La.
The announcement, in part:
Today, I am excited to announce that I am taking the next step in exploring a possible run for United States Senate. Two weeks ago, I embarked on a listening tour where I had the pleasure of hearing the thoughts and concerns of my fellow Louisianans. These conversations were highly encouraging and convinced me to officially explore the possibility of running for the United States Senate. To this end, I have formed an exploratory committee to gauge Louisianans’ support for my potential candidacy.
I do not take this step lightly. While I have been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response my potential candidacy has generated thus far, my decision to run for United States Senate will only be made after I have had the opportunity to discuss this prospect with as many people across the state as possible. Too many in government ignore the voices of those whom they claim to represent. I promise you that I will not.
