Mary Carey

A porn star who unsuccessfully ran for California governor will be among the guests who will dine with President Bush at an upcoming fund-raiser.

According to Counterpunch, the National Republican Congressional Committee is hosting a dinner June 14, and among those in attendance will be the buxom Mary Carey, and her boss, Mark Kulkis.

“I’m hoping to run as lieutenant governor of California next year,” Carey said. “Since Arnold [Schwarzenegger] is a Republican, I thought this dinner would be a great networking opportunity for me.”

“I’m especially looking forward to meeting Karl Rove,” Carey added. “Smart men like him are so sexy. I know that he’s against gay marriage, but I think I can convince him that a little girl-on-girl action now and then isn’t so bad!”

Carey lost to Schwarzenegger in the 2003 California recall election. Her platform included: taxing breast enhancements, making lap dances tax deductible, recruiting porn stars as “ambassadors of good will,” and putting Web cams up in every room of the governor’s mansion.

Just last weekend, Carey, whose real name is Mary Cook, was among five people arrested at a new strip club in a suburb of Tacoma, Wash.

All were accused of violating the local adult-cabaret ordinance, some by getting too close to customers and others – including Carey – by touching themselves in a sexual manner, according to the Associated Press.

The inclusion of porn-industry representatives at a Republican event is shocking many Bush supporters.

“The Republican Party has been hijacked,” said a caller on Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily Radioactive program. “[Bush] is Clinton all over again! Only he doesn’t have someone under his desk.”

“I’m honored to be invited to this event,” said Kulkis, who heads Kick A– Pictures. “Republicans bill themselves as the pro-business party. Well, you won’t find a group of people more pro-business than pornographers. We contributed over $10 billion to the national economy last year.”

Kulkis is currently an honorary chairman on the NRCC’s Business Advisory Council, a roundtable of millionaire business entrepreneurs who advocate a robust “pro-business agenda.”
