XXX movie actress who caused stir last summer eating dinner this week
Mary Carey, the buxom, XXX movie star who caused an uproar last year for dining
with President Bush and her pornographer, apparently still has a hunger
for the nation's capital, and will have dinner with the president once again
The former candidate for California governor is to attend the United
to Victory dinner with Bush on Thursday, and have lunch at a related event
Wednesday where Bush adviser Karl Rove is the guest speaker. She says she's
taking part at the invitation of the National Republican Congressional Committee,
which is organizing the events.
"I'm really excited to be going back to Washington D.C. to see the president
again," said Carey. "Everyone thinks that politicians are stuffy,
but we all had a great time last year, and I had fun signing a lot of autographs.
Wait till they see that I have lost 20 pounds since the last time they saw me.
Watch out Mr. President!"
According to a news release, Carey is slated to receive the 2005 California
Businesswoman of the Year award for her efforts in starting Mary Carey Productions,
"I'm always excited to learn more about what's going on in our nation's
capital, since most people in the porn industry think an Iraqi pullout is a
form of safe sex," she quipped. "Since I'm seriously considering running
for governor of California again, I'm going to need a lot of support from Republican
lawmakers nationwide – however I can get it."
The NRCC is the same group that accepted $5,000 from Carey and her pornographer,
Mark Kulkis of Kick A-- Pictures, and allowed the pair to take part at the 2005
Flag Day Dinner.
Asked by WND last year about the propriety of the Republican Party collecting
$5,000 from a pornographer and the example such an appearance set for the moral
climate of the nation, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said: "I
think you need to direct those questions to the committee itself."
When WND contacted the NRCC about the Flag Day event, spokesman Carl Forti
said, "They've paid their money. No matter what they do, the money is going
to go to help elect Republicans to the House."
In an exclusive
interview with WorldNetDaily, Carey said despite her racy occupation, she's
still a Christian, and has her own aspirations of winning the presidency in
"I read the Bible and pray every night," she explained.
Carey, whose real name is Mary Ellen Cook, says she was named after the Mary
Ellen character on "The Waltons" TV show. Born in Cleveland, she was
raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., studied theater in college, and worked jobs
in restaurants before trying stripping and then making the decision to enter
the world of celluloid sex.
"I kind of wanted to be a porn star," she said. "I wasn't raped
With a Lutheran grandmother, Carey says she attended church regularly until
the age of 12.
Despite having numerous sexual partners, she remains proud of her occupation.
"I probably have less sex with those guys than any college girl [typically
has]. It doesn't make me less moral," she said. "I'm sure a lot of
Christians have had sex before marriage. God reads my heart. I'm a good person.
... I think I have more morals than the politicians in office. I don't rob,
steal, hurt, or lie – a lot of politicians do that."
When asked about Bible verses condemning adultery, she responded, "Bill
Clinton committed adultery. [Doing] adult movies is acting, portraying a role.
It's not Mary Ellen Cook, the real me."
