Stormy Daniels Appears In Springfield, Partly To Blast Adult-Entertainment Tax

SPRINGFIELD (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The adult entertainer who said she had an affair with Donald Trump -- before Trump became president -- is about to visit Springfield.

Friday, Stormy Daniels plans to protest the state’s adult-entertainment tax.

From the Illinois Coalition against Sexual Assault, Carrie Ward wonders if Daniels knows that tax helps rape crisis centers.

“These services are so important and so critical, and everyone knows someone who has been affected by sexual violence in one way or another,” Ward told WBBM Newsradio’s Dave Dahl Monday.

“And there never seems to be quite enough resources to provide the assistance that we need.”

Daniels is also appearing at a strip club to sign books -- and to strip. Ward said she is not trying to get such places shut down, or to outlaw pornography but she says they do promote the objectification of women and, in some cases, victimization.
