Avenatti: Vice Cops Arrest Stormy Over Illegal Physical Touching with Customers


The Stormy Daniels saga keeps getting seedier.

The woman who’s made “porn star” part of the American political discourse in 2018 is making a different kind of headlines after her arrest early Wednesday morning for allegedly having physical contact with patrons during a performance at a strip club in Columbus, Ohio — and the “patrons” turned out to be undercover cops.

And naturally, her publicity-hungry lawyer is claiming a set-up.

According to The Associated Press, word of the arrest came from the loquacious Michael Avenatti, a man who’s building a national reputation based on representing the country’s most notorious … sex worker.

In Twitter posts, Avenatti sounded shocked, shocked that such an event was even possible.

Liberals love to talk about “higher priorities” for law enforcement when it’s people they favor who are breaking the law (or accused of it).

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the arrest took place at a strip club called Sirens.

Do you think Stormy Daniels broke the law?

Avenatti’s description of his client’s behavior as touching patrons in a “non-sexual manner” doesn’t quite square with the arrest affidavit’s account, as reported by the Dispatch:

 At least four Columbus police officers attended Daniels’ performance at Sirens, and an affidavit filed in Franklin County Municipal Court says Daniels touched three of the officers — both men and women — during her performance.

Around 11:30 p.m. the officers watched Daniels take the stage and take her top off, the affidavit said.

Nearly all of the club’s customers approached the stage and started throwing dollars bills at the performer, the affidavit said. Daniels then forced the faces of several customers into her chest, smacked the sides of their heads with her breasts, and touched the breasts of several female customers.

Three officers approached the stage after watching Daniels make contact with the customers and the performer treated them in a similar manner, forcing their faces into her chest and touching the breasts and buttocks of a female officer, according to the affidavit.

Daniels, of course, is the porn star who claims she had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump back in 2006, and now wants to get out of a non-disclosure agreement she signed – and for which she was paid $130,000 by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen.

Who could believe a woman with that kind of background might be breaking the law in a strip club in Columbus, Ohio?

According to the Dispatch, Daniels was freed on $6,000 bail (plus fees) Thursday morning. Her next court appearance is an arraignment Friday morning.

Of course, it’s theoretically possible that the physical contact described in the Dispatch is non-sexual, but given the context — a nationally known performer, a crowded strip club near midnight, with customers throwing dollar bills — it doesn’t seem likely.

That won’t stop a shameless shill like Avenatti from taking his case to the public — and apparently deciding to blame police officers for enforcing a law rather than his client for allegedly breaking it.

It won’t stop liberals from believing just about any accusation against Trump from any source imaginable.

And hard as it is to believe, it certainly won’t keep the Stormy Daniels saga from getting seedier than it already is.
