A former stripper in Philadelphia is running for Congress -- and she's not the least bit ashamed of her past.
When she launched her campaign, 28-year-old Alexandra Hunt says she was concerned her steamy past would hurt her chances of being elected, noting, "I worked as a stripper during college to pay bills, but I feared the stigma of this work so much that I kept it a deeply buried secret." However, that's changed. She now openly discusses her former gig at campaign stops, and is even selling T-shirts emblazoned with the messages, "Elect Hoes" and, "I may have danced for money but I'm no corporate wh***."
In fact, Hunt wants to fight for women who work in the sex industry, campaigning on promises to decriminalize sex work and abolish loitering laws in Philly.
