RNC made 'a frugal investment with a keen eye toward maximum return,' says Daniels

Here's one new supporter the Republican Party might be better off without.

Former porn star and lifelong Democrat Stormy Daniels has found a new home in the GOP after its notorious expenditures at a bondage-themed strip club in Los Angeles.

"After months of careful deliberation and consult 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.

If she does run this year, she'll be challenging incumbent Republican senator David Vitter (LA) -- who had his own unfortunate incident with women's lingerie last November.

Wholeheartedly embracing what has been a damaging scandal for the party, Daniels added, "While this decision has not been an easy one, recent events regarding Republican National Committee fundraising at Voyeur, an LA based lesbian bondage themed nightclub finally tipped the scales."

The RNC was revealed last week to have incurred $1,900 in expenses at a nightclub that features topless lesbian dancers during a trip to southern California this year.

The incident has drawn rebukes from family values groups and some of the party's largest donors. But not from Daniels, who now feels welcomed in the party after being "a registered Democrat throughout my life."

"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 $1,900 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 remarked.

Daniels added:

"And I firmly believe that it is precisely this type of creative and calculated investing that we, as taxpaying Americans, should expect not only from our political parties but from our government. The American taxpayer deserves consistent conservatives who reject wasteful spending and unwarranted government intervention in the private sector.

"As is the case with so many of my fellow Louisianans, I have been a registered Democrat throughout my life. But now I cannot help but recognize that over time my libertarian values regarding both money and sex and the legal use of one for the other is now best espoused by the Republican Party."
