The Porn Star Who Wants To Oust One of America’s Most Homophobic Senators

Republican Louisiana Sen. David Vitter is about as homophobic as they come. A staunch supporter of abstinence-only sex education, Vitter was one of those hecklers who tried amending the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. He’s the guy who said, “I don’t believe there’s any issue that’s more important than this one.” (Now was that before or after he compared the effects of gays getting married to Hurricane Katrina?) Oh, you also might have seen Vitter’s name on D.C. Madame’s list, because he likes his hookers! At least he did was he was a congressman! Now meet Stormy Daniels, the buxom porn star who plans on giving Vitter a fight for his Senate seat — and someone who has the opposite stance on all of Vitter’s “family values.”

An an interview this week, the star of such films Tit Happens and Super Size Meat comes out swinging on equality. Says Daniels: “One of the joys of being an American is equal treatment. … 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.”

Now how serious a threat is Daniels to Vitter’s Senate seat? Let’s just say it’s an uphill battle. Nevermind her adult career, or that she’s running in a conservative state like Louisiana. It’s all about the money, and Vitter has the GOP machine in place to raise cash. Daniels, alas, does not, and it’s unlikely the DNC will start rallying behind a porn star.

Ultimately, no matter how many folks might come around to her side, without the dollars to back a media campaign, her fight is dead in the water. Not that we’re giving up hope.

      Seriously I am impressed by Stormy. She’s open, honest and smart as hell. She probably can’t win, but let’s hope she gives him a run for his money while simultaneously highlighting his hypocrisy.

      I thought Daniels was running for the GOP nomination instead of the Democratic side, which would mean she’d only face Vitter in the primaries instead of the general election next year.

      Finally a real political story of interest on this site! You go girl, put all his freaky sex tales out for the public, this self -righteous, homophobic, hypocrite really needs to be out of office. Although, it is Louisiana ,and, the GOP seems to own it like it does the rest of the deep South.

      I would vote for her over any zealot. Their IQs are most likely the same but hey- she’s not a demonic, bigoted monster. Choice is pretty clear.
