Politics makes for strange -- and often unwanted --- bedfellows. That's especially true for Anthony Weiner, who is getting support from a Los Angeles pornographer.
The New York mayoral candidate, who resigned from Congress in 2011 amid a sexting scandal broke, admitted on Tuesday that he has engaged in similar antics since then.
Weiner is vowing that he won't pull out of the race, and that pleases L.A.-based porn distributor Mike Kulich, who is hoping to raise money for the beleaguered candidate with adult DVD fittingly entitled, "Don't Pull Out."
"Sex scandals like Weiner's make it easier for my business," Kulich told The Huffington Post. "Everyone wants to think politicians are so clean, but they sext and watch porn just like normal people."
The DVD, scheduled for a Sept. 1 release, is in the early stages of production, and is mostly a compilation of existing scenes including one featuring Ginger Lee, one of Weiner's sexting partners, who is no longer in the industry.
Kulich promises to donate 15 percent of sales to Weiner's campaign.
It may sound like a publicity stunt, but Kulich claims he genuinely supports Weiner even though he's not registered to vote in New York City.
"His private life is his own business and it doesn't impede his ability to do the job," Kulich said.
If the DVD is successful, Kulich is open to doing similar projects for other scandal-ridden politicos. It's unclear how the porn purveyor would stay within the laws that govern campaign donations. Perhaps he'll ban together with similar entrepreneurs and form a Perv Super PAC.
Kulich is willing to go even further and offer Weiner an on-camera job if the political thing doesn't work out.
"He has the perfect name for a porn star," Kulich said. "I've seen his bulge on TMZ so he's well-equipped in other ways."
CLARIFICATION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly implied that Ginger Lee is filming a new scene for the DVD. The DVD is a compilation of existing scenes, except for one new scene.
