Over 3,000 ballots were cast for the Libertarian candidate, stripper Sandra Salas, who secured 1 percent of the votes in the special elections for the 7th congressional district in Pennsylvania, located in Delaware Valley. She came in third place, behind two other women – Democrat Mary Gay Scanlon with 52 percent and Pearl Kim with 46 points.
The district had a special vote as its Republican Representative Pat Meehan resigned and announced he would not seek re-election following revelations that he used public money to settle a sexual harassment claim against him.
In her campaign, Salas voiced her passion for sex worker's rights, LGBTQIA rights, marijuana legalisation, and gun rights, as the website Ballotpedia says.
According to a Ballotpedia survey, she takes inspiration from another stripper, Theodora, who became the Byzantine Empress.
She is also quite open about her non-conventional job and religious views.
I'm going to focus on ME the next 2 years. I'm not going to hide being a sex worker or a Satanist. If Neo Nazis and white nationalists don't have to hide, why should I?— Tempest McGee (@LibertarianSlut) 7 ноября 2018 г.
Salas, who is used to being ‘in the flesh’ during the course of her work, reminded us of her profession by posting nude selfies during the campaign.
3 people called me "thick" this week. One, fine. Two, side eye. 😒 Three, Houston we have a problem. Where there's smoke, there's fire and I'm gonna do something about it. I am in no way overweight. >=[— Tempest McGee (@LibertarianSlut) 24 марта 2018 г.
