Democrat in LA Dist. Attny Race Gets Porn Star Endorsement

Well, what could be better than getting the endorsement of a porn star if you are running for District Attorney? Nothing says “law enforcement” like getting the slut industry behind you like Democrat Los Angeles DA candidate Jackie Lacey has!

I wrote about Lacey last week when I found out she had abused her position as an officer of the courts in order to get out from under accepting the consequences of a car accident that she and her husband caused, but this new turn to her campaign for the DA’s office is a pip.

Lacey’s opponent Alan Jackson recently criticized Lacey for having had a fundraiser with former porn star, Kira Reed Lorsch. And there is no question about the truth of this claim, either. Kira Lorsch’s husband even mentioned they hosted a Lacey fundraiser in an October 21 Facebook posting on his own page.

Kira Reed Lorsch is “famous” for such “work” as Naked Happy Girls and Sexcetera, not to mention such scintillating fare as the Mistress Club, American Virgin, and Carnal Fate.

One has to wonder what Jackie Lacey’s opinion of the porn industry is? Does she fully support it? Is this the sort of role model that we want upholding the law?

So, Lacey has no problem using her position for personal gain and now her campaign is bankrolled by a porn star. There’s the kind of role model we want to hold up to our kids, eh?

    Porn stars have the right to vote too, and BTW they are not necessarily criminals any more than anyone else. Porn may be distasteful, but it remains legal.

    Jenna Jameson (Link is SFW) endorsed Romney. I see no problem with people stating their political views. Frankly, I find public employee union endorsements far more troubling and corrupting.

    While getting an endorsement from a porno star is hardly the stuff of a family values commercial, the industry is legal in CA. And, as jim_m points out, the… um… performers… don’t lose their citizenship rights for taking off their clothes. Finally, it’s a question whether Lacey has actively sought such endorsements (and donations) or whether they’ve come her way because she’s a democrat and the performers in question share her political values.

    The job of a district attorney is to prosecute people who commit crimes, not to be the morality police for a particular person’s definition of morality.

    Also, that Wikipedia entry about Kira Reed Lorsch states, “Kira currently works as an entertainment reporter for Associated Television International, does the Pets 2 Love dog adoption segments on CBS LA morning news and writes the Beverly Hills Courier Rescue Dog of the Week column. Kira is also the spokesperson for MMR Global. ” So, she has left the porn industry.

    Besides, a “more-moral-than-thou” attitude is a huge turn off. The Tanakh book of Psalms says, “There is none who does good, not even one.” (14:3) Jesus of Nazareth proclaimed, “No one is good except God alone.” (Mark 10:18)

    I’ve run many features on the adult entertainment industry over at Wizbang Pop, and it’s no secret that as a whole Republicans are bad for this industry, often championing the religious right and crusading for more obscenity crackdowns. This socially liberal entertainment industry is overwhelming supportive of some Democratic candidates if they view the industry in terms of freedom of expression. Further, Democratic presidential administrations tend to be more easy on the industry with less obscenity prosecutions. The Obama Administration, for example, seemed to only prosecute some of the most extreme material like for example the case of Ira Isaacs in Los Angeles who either produced or sold material dealing with real or faked scat or the sexual use of animals, two things that are definitely a real taboo and no-no in the mainstream adult entertainment industry where just run of the mill sex between adult men and women are their bread and butter. By contrast, a Romney Administration would nearly certainly use their Justice Department for political purposes and look to prosecute mainstream porn by shopping for very conservative local communities to prosecute mainstream porn companies in areas where things like a “money shot” may violate local community standards. As a whole, depictions of sexual intercourse between adults aren’t viewed as legally obscene in the U.S. these days, but some areas can prosecute material that features a “money shot”. PLAYBOY cable, for example, will show sexual intercourse, but won’t show anal sex or a “money shot” for this reason. And since most adult films feature a “money shot”, most of this mainstream material could be put in legal danger if prosecuted in some select local communities in the U.S.
    Surprising, the Republican Party of Los Angeles County has come out against a ballot measure in Los Angeles County that could seriously hurt the adult film production industry there. It would require adult films to use barrier devices such as dental dams, condoms, gloves and goggles where 90% of the U.S.’s. 21,000 adult films a year are produced. The other 10% of film production is mostly in Miami or other California areas like around San Francisco, with only some small production in areas like Colorado or Arizona.
    Mitt Romney does have the financial backing of one large adult entertainment producer though. The owner of PENTHOUSE also owns a number of adult Websites including at least with one concerned with adult dating among those into bondage. But, this guy’s main industry is in the construction trade, where he’s looking for the big tax breaks he could reap under Romney for high income earners like himself. And there’s also a small number of high earning adult film stars who support Romney because of the tax breaks they think they might get as well.
    Ask me anything you want to know about the entertainment industry or motorcycles, and I’m there. That’s my shtick.
