Mimi Miyagi in Political Limbo
Wonkette's favorite acknowledged porn-star-cum-politician, Nevada gubernatorial hopeful Melody "Mimi Miyagi" Damayo, continues to wow potential Silver State voters bored of gambling and whoring. Mimi's latest stunt: a karaoke and limbo-contest fundraiser. Reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Damayo worked the room like a veteran politician, handing out campaign stickers. She also offered lap dances with a wide, pink-lipsticked smile.
"I'm here to witness history," said John Hambrick, chair of the Clark County Republican Party, who brought his wife as a "chaperone" to the event. "No gubernatorial candidate has ever done this before." He was referring to karaoke.
Mimi's main drawback? Her ability to inspire crappy puns in newspaper accounts:
"Mimi's a very likeable person," [Pharmacist Dan] Brooks said. "She's maybe not the most eloquent (speaker), but she seems like a sweetheart." Then, grinning at his own cleverness, he added, "She's abreast of all the issues."
Brooks and his friends exchanged high-fives for that quip.
