Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump, was arrested Wednesday night at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was performing at a club called Sirens when she allegedly allowed a customer to touch her while on stage. Police rushed in and arrested her for violating an Ohio law which prohibits the touching of a nude or semi-nude dancer.
Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, argues that the arrest is politically motivated. He tweeted overnight, “Just rcvd word that my client Stormy Daniels was arrested in Columbus, Ohio while performing the same act she has performed across the nation at nearly a hundred strip clubs. This was a setup & politically motivated. It reeks of desperation. We will fight all bogus charges.” (USA Today)
- Why was she arrested and not the customer who touched her?
- Hey, the law is the law and she violated it.
- It definitely sounds like the police were ready to rush in and were just waiting for their moment.
- She’s definitely being unfairly targeted. It does “reek of desperation.”
