Stormy Daniels ... aka Stephanie Clifford

A US porn star says she may run as a Republican Senate candidate because the party best represents her “views about sex and money”.

Stormy Daniels, who has won scores of awards for her adult movies, claims she has been a “life-long Democrat” but a recent sex-themed party paid for by the Republican Party changed her allegiances.

Her statement followed news headlines that the Republican National Committee spent $US1946 ($2120) last month at a sex-themed Hollywood club that features topless dancers and bondage outfits.

“After months of careful deliberation and [consultation] as to the true nature of my political affiliation I am ready today to declare that should I seek the office of US Senator from the great state of Louisiana that I will do so as a Republican,” she said in a statement.

“While this decision has not been an easy one, recent events regarding Republican National Committee fund-raising at Voyeur, an LA based lesbian bondage themed nightclub finally tipped the scales.”

Ms Daniels – whose real name is Stephanie Clifford – said $US1900 would have paid for a good night.

“As someone who has worked extensively in both the club and film side of the Adult Entertainment Industry, I know from experience that a mere $US1900 outlay at a club with the reputation of Voyeur is a clear indication of a frugal investment with a keen eye toward maximum return,” she said.

Ms Daniels, whose political spokesman has a history of working for Democrats, is to announce on April 15 whether she will run against current Republican Senator David Vitter
