In what may be the greatest Miami marriage ever between pornography and politics, the most politically relevant porn star in U.S. history is coming to South Florida to dance in one of South Florida's most notorious strip clubs.
Stormy Daniels, the adult performer who was paid $130,000 during the 2016 presidential campaign to stay silent about an alleged tryst with President Donald Trump, has a contract to perform at Miami Beach's Club Madonna, an all-nude venue that's been trolling city politicians for years, according to owner Leroy Griffith.
Griffith, the godfather of smut in the Magic City, says he's got a contract with Daniels — real name Stephanie Clifford — to perform at his Washington Avenue venue over Memorial Day Weekend. An advertisement for the "Make America Horny Again" tour says Daniels will be appearing live on May 25 and 26.
Griffith declined to discuss what he's paying for the appearance.
"I got her at the right price," he said.
A payment from Trump attorney Michael Cohen to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election has dogged Trump for months. Daniels is currently suing the president for defamation. Griffith, however, says he likes Trump: "I know Donald very well. I used to travel with him."
But the appearance — scheduled during one of the most hectic weekends of the year in South Beach — seems perfect for a businessman who's provoked politicians in Miami and Miami Beach with smut theaters and controversial strip clubs for decades.
