You might see car fires and domestic violence in a mob movie. But as a sideshow to a potential U.S. Senate race?

As Louisiana media reported this week, porn actress Stormy Daniels, who’s weighing a primary challenge to Republican Sen. David Vitter, has had a rather stormy time lately.

Daniels, whose bid presently is in an “exploratory” phase, was arrested last weekend on charges that she hit her husband at their residence in Tampa, Florida. And some 500 miles away in New Orleans — the state in which Daniels would have to establish residency to run — her political adviser Brian Welsh’s car caught fire.
