Speaking of Nevada elections…
Last day for ballot bids brings out the usual unusuals

A former porn star filed for governor…

Melody Damayo, who performed under the name Mimi Miyagi in movies such as "Seoul Train," appeared at the Sawyer Building downtown about 4:30 p.m. in a hot-pink pillbox hat, hot-pink high-heeled sandals and a very low-cut hot-pink suit. She was accompanied by an entourage she called her Campaign Cuties as well as two dark-suited bodyguards.

Damayo, who called herself the "former Asian Love Goddess," filed to run for governor as a Republican, saying one of her priorities would be anti-stalking legislation. She added that she hoped to address youth and gang violence "so they don't do it anymore."

Damayo, 32, is a native of the Philippines. She said she originally thought to run for mayor but was encouraged to run for governor by her friends. She has lived in Henderson for 13 years, she said.

Damayo said she retired from the adult film industry in 2003 with the film "Happy Ending." [Ed. – Warning, link has sexual content]

"I have nothing left to hide," she said. "My slogan is, 'I'm bare and honest at all times.'"…
Hey, if a mob mouthpiece can get elected mayor of Las Vegas, certainly the woman who “puts the hole in Holistic” should have a shot at the governor’s mansion.
