Stormy Daniels Is NOT Running For Senate

She promised an announcement on April 15, and she delivered an announcement on April 15. Porn star Stormy Daniels has decided not to challenge David Vitter for the Republican nomination for Senate in Louisiana. Too bad. That would have been one helluva interesting race.

Stormy released a lengthy statement. Here is a portion:
"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.

"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 inparticualar, 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.

"And so here on this tax day, the day when we pay our due to the government we elect, let us be reminded that our government is truly elected by the lobbyists and special influence peddlers who are so eager to trade values for influence. And that it is Senators like David Vitter who do their bidding by placing a higher value on campaign cash than our tax dollars."
