Porn star and Baton Rouge-native Stormy Daniels is considering running for Senate in 2010. If she chooses to run, she'll be up against incumbent Republican Sen. David Vitter -- a controversial politician.

Vitter may struggle with his reelection campaign as he messed up. Identified as a client of the services of the DC Madam -- the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey's prostitution service in Washington, D.C. -- Vitter is hoping that voters have forgiven him this time around.

And Daniels hasn't decided what party to go with (right now she's an independent). She's a bit of a long shot in Louisiana but she isn't the first porn actress to seek an elected position.

Ilona Staller, aka Hungarian-born Italian porn star Cicciolina, was elected to the Italian Parliament in 1987. And porn star Mimi Miyagi (derived from the Karate Kid's Mr. Miyagi) threw her hat into the ring in 2006 when she ran for the governorship of Nevada under her real nam, Melody Damayo. After she was defeated in the the primary by Jim Gibbons, she joined the Libertarian Party.

As far as Daniels is concerned, she's said to make a final decision on her Senatorial ambitions by the end of the summer.

He Was The Mayor of Great Falls

Gayle Morris, the former mayor of Great Falls, Montana, was arrested last week for promoting prostitution at his Sun Prairie strip club called Really Windy's. The 63-year-old, who was also the Cascade County Commissioner at one time, could face a felony sentence of 20 years.

Montana law considers it illegal for anyone to compel another to engage or promote prostitution. Allegedly, Morris told informants, "What happens in the lap dance room, stays in the lap dance room."

One dancer claimed to earn $1,500 for an outcall and had to pay back the lounge between $200 and $300. The warrant said that an undercover officer recorded a conversation with a dancer who offered to perform sex acts for money. At the time of the warranted search, Morris denied any allegations of prostitution.
