Mary Carey, who ran for California governor in a recall election in 2003, and who is also a porn star, was arrested in a strip club for allegedly touching herself in a sexual manner in public.
She and four others were arrested in a raid on a new strip club in the Tacoma suburb of Lakewood, Washington. Eleven other people were written citations. All sixteen had violated the law by getting too close to customers or sexual touching.
Two years ago, as voters recalled Democrat Gray Davis and elected Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor, Mary Carey finished tenth among 135 candidates on the ballot.
