Daniels: Not just a publicity stunt

The Monroe News Star

After reading your recent editorial asking me to say goodbye to the people of Louisiana, I am compelled to respond to your slew of stereotypical assumptions and misguided conclusions. By way of introduction, my name is Stormy Daniels and, as with so many before you, you have failed to see me for who I am and why I am exploring a run for the United States Senate.

You suggest doing this will become old, and, on that point, I agree. But if you took the time to speak with the people I have spoken with, then perhaps you would take a different point of view. Perhaps what you would start finding old is how many Louisianans are out there hurting without someone willing to speak to them, let alone for them.

By John Andrew Prime
Shreveport Times

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels, a political independent mulling a run against incumbent Republican David Vitter to be Louisiana’s junior U.S. senator, stopped in Shreveport briefly Friday to listen to voters’ concerns and put away a little fried catfish, okra, hush puppies and pie.

Daniels stopped at Southfield Grill, where some people showed up to pose for photos or get her autograph. But for most she was another face, albeit a pretty one framed by blond hair, in the crowd.
