Porn star and Baton Rouge native Stormy Daniels will be coming to New Orleans on Wednesday, May 6, when the star of Frosty the Snow Ho, Meatless in Seattle and Pork Rangers 2 "will continue her conversation with the citizens of Louisiana and listen to the ongoing struggles they face in these troubled economic times."

It's the latest salvo from Draft Stormy, the grassroots movement to unseat Sen. David Vitter in the 2010 Senate race sell beaucoup DVDs and get a lot of publicity. Not that you would know it from the Draft Stormy Web site:

What seemed like temporary clouds only months ago have transformed into a tropical storm approaching category one hurricane status. When DraftStormy launched its efforts to draft Baton Rouge native Stormy Daniels to run for United States Senate late last January, we were labeled a “cheap political stunt.” The old Louisiana status quo that has been in power for decades could not comprehend the tsunami of grassroots support Stormy Daniels generated among the working men and women of Louisiana.

The aforementioned cheap political stunt kicks off at noon at Serio’s Po’ Boys & Deli (133 St. Charles Ave.), home of some of the best muffulettas in town. (You can write your own joke here.)

(The best part of the press release is the ad automatically appended to the bottom of the message by AOL (don't all political campaigns use throwaway AOL accounts to send out their press releases?). It reads: Join® FREE! Meet Christian Singles in your area. Start now!)
