All the candidates are doing it!
Why cough up $25 on the remote chance you could spend a day with John Kerry when Porn star candidate offers date to big donors!
Porn actress Mary Carey, one of 135 candidates running for California governor, offered on Tuesday to go on a date with anyone offering her a hefty campaign contribution. But that is it, just a date,

Carey said she would offer a dinner date to anyone giving more than $5,000 (3,150 pounds) to her campaign that seeks to replace Gov. Gray Davis if he is recalled by voters on October 7.

Asked if the date could lead to a sexual encounter, campaign aide Jayson Helgeson replied: "I don't think so, that's not part of it. It's like a normal date."

Pressed to clarify what a normal date means for a woman who has appeared in both explicit lesbian and heterosexual scenes, he put the phone on hold to clarify and then responded: "No sex, no matter what."
Why so squeamish about whoring for contributions? If it had been Gray Davis, a campaign aide would have sent over a price list.
