Itialian Porn Star Uses Her Seat to Gain a Seat

Labels: , ,

She had no desire to be just another smiling face in Italian politics. So when porn star Milly D'Abbraccio designed her campaign posters, it was obvious she was going to show off her bottom. Targeting her male fan base, the veteran of Italy's adult entertainment industry has plastered images of her derriere all around the Eternal City in a bid to win a seat in Rome's city hall. D'Abbraccio hopes to capitalise on increasing disenchantment with Italian politics. The recession-prone nation votes on Sunday and Monday in elections to pick a prime minister as well as lawmakers, mayors and city councillors. "People don't want to see these politicians' faces anymore," she told Reuters in an interview from her Rome apartment. She said she was tapping into her popularity among pornography fans as "an act of generosity" to help Italy's socialists, who are fielding her in the municipal race. "I am the derriere of the Socialist party," she concluded.

If elected, D'Abbraccio wants to create a red light area with strip clubs, erotic discos and sex shops called "Love City" just kilometres away from the Vatican."It would be something cute, clean -- nothing to do with prostitution," said the actress whose films include "The Kiss of the Cobra" and "Paolina Borghese, Imperial Nymphomaniac". If D'Abbraccio wins, she says she will represent Romans from the district that is home to Cinecitta studios, Italy's version of Hollywood where classics like "La Dolce Vita" were filmed. "I will reign over Cinecitta, if I get the votes," she said, reclining on a gold-rimmed, chaise lounge in her living room. [Source]

As always, there is always something interesting to talk about. Just makes me wonder what we would do if one of our Adult Porn Stars were to run for office, now I'm not talking about just state office, remember the porn star that ran against the Terminator in California, no I'm talking about something major like President. It would certainly make politics more interesting. The other candidates really wouldn't be able to do a smear campaign would they... Now with Milly I think it was interesting and somewhat smart of her to use her "assets" to help further her campaign. I do not believe that her wanting to open a red light district by the Vatican will help her campaign at all, but things are different in Italy so I'm not sure what it will do. So what do you think? Do you think that he ad campaign was a good idea or do you think it will inevitably hurt her chances of being viewed as a serious candidate? Only time will tell.

Seeing as how more and more politicians are acting like pornstars, I think this could only help her out.
