Porn Star Stormy Daniels, (real name: Stephanie Clifford age 30) was arrested July 25 2009 for alleged domestic abuse towards her husband validating the claim by millions of men in America that in fact women do abuse their husbands. Miss Clifford was handcuffed, transported to Hillsborough County jail (Florida) and released on $1000 bond after the incident.
It appears Stephanie Clifford’s bid for a U.S. Senate seat in the State of Louisiana as a Republican has hit stormy waters.
The question now is will this arrest run her campaign aground? If being a porn actress was not enough for people to question her credentials and ability to be a State Senator, one has to question if alleged abuse towards her husband of two years will have any impact at all with the voters of Florida.
Her husband reported that Stephanie Clifford hit him several times after an argument. She admitted to throwing a number of broken objects which the arresting officer noted upon arrival at her residence in Tampa.
Allegedly the argument was one sided in that her husband Michael’s father came by the marital home earlier in the day and as
a favor, did some laundry and folded it. Clifford became upset about the way the clothes were folded and became more upset when she found some bills that not been paid. After throwing objects she then struck her husband about the head with her hands and fists. According to Clifford her husband held keys to the car over his head and she doesn’t remember striking him
in an effort to obtain them. The police report indicated Clifford was both angry and crying.
Clifford seemed keen on how to handle her arrest by denying she hit her husband and after refusing to write her own statement during the arrest stating to the arresting officer, “my lawyer told me never sign any papers and since I am paying him a lot of money I will not sign it”. It as at this time the arrest was made as there were no apparent marks on Clifford’s husband.
Clifford is currently in the early stages of challenging incumbent Senator David Vitter as she feels she is on more righteous ground. Vitter recently admitted to patronizing a prostitution ring resulting in Clifford’s campaign slogan:
Stormy Daniels: Screwing People Honestly.
It’s not the first time an adult porn star actress has thrown their hat in the political ring. In fact, Ilona Staller (a.k.a. Cicciolina) was elected to Italy’s parliament in 1987. Other notable but losing efforts were waged by: Porn stars Mary Carey ran for California Governor in 2003. Mimi Miyagi ran for Nevada Governor in 2006. Milly D-Abbraccio ran for Rome’s City Hall as recently as 2008.
