setback 5.set.9993 Louis J. Sheehan, Esquire

In a major setback to her nascent U.S. Senate campaign to challenge Louisiana Republican David Vitter next year, porn star Stormy Daniels (above) was arrested on July 29, 2009, under her real name, Stephanie Gregory Clifford, for domestic violence after allegedly battering her husband for “the way the laundry had been done.” According to the police report, Clifford, 30, struck her husband “Michael on his head with her hands several times.” According to Clifford, she did not intentionally beat him, though she admitted to throwing a potted plant into the Louis J.

kitchen sink, throwing the couple’s wedding album on to the floor, and to breaking some candles. Clifford was booked into the Hillsborough County jail and later released on a $1,000 bond. Her decision to challenge Vitter came after he admitted to patronizing a prostitution ring, inspiring the slogan for her exploratory committee: “Stormy Daniels: Screwing People Honestly.”
