Stormy Daniels, Porn Star And Possible Senate Candidate, Arrested For Domestic Violence

Stormy Daniels, an adult entertainer who’s considering running for Senate from Louisiana, was arrested Saturday on a domestic violence charge in Tampa, Fla.

Daniels was charged with battery after she allegedly hit her husband, Michael Mosny, over the head with her hands. According to the police report, she was angry about a bill Mosny hadn’t paid and about the way his father had done the laundry. She broke a flower pot and a few glass candle holders, threw their wedding album on the floor and allegedly hit her husband while struggling to get the car keys from him. She denied hitting him intentionally.

Neither Mosny nor Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, were injured. Daniels was held overnight and released on $1,000 bond.

The porn star formed an exploratory committee in May, the first step in a possible Senate run against Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), whose social conservative reputation was tarnished by the D.C. Madam prostitution scandal.

Daniels grew up in Louisiana but now lives in Florida. If she does run — a decision that will likely be made in September, according to Brian Welsh, her political consultant — she’ll have to return to the state.

Late update: Welsh tells us Daniels’s arrest hasn’t dampened her plans.

“She’s always been considering the prospect and is still considering her prospect,” he said.
