Remember when conservatives were moralizing over the lyrics to WAP and Cardi B’s performance of the song? Do we have any guesses how they’ll respond to a woman of their own party performing a stripper-style routine in sheer panties and star-shaped pasties for a campaign ad?
No one can deny it’s an innovative ad, although if anyone can figure out how the state of dress relates to a bid for Texas Railroad Commissioner, please share, because we’re all wondering. Look, we can fully support Sarah Stogner making her own choices for her body — but can Republicans?
Tweeting out her campaign ad on Sunday, Stogner quipped, “They said I need money. I have other assets.” You can see the clip below — but use caution, it may not be safe for work and does contain nudity.

While we understand that Stogner is referring to campaign funding, there’s no sign she’s short on assets. She is an attorney, and has personally founded a law firm focused on oil and gas company work. She also describes herself as working on legal issues for the cannibis industry.
However, where she fails with Republicans may not be her stripper routine, but her statements on renewable energy — on her campaign site she asserts, “Texas needs regulators who understand the operational realities of exploring for and producing clean, reliable, and affordable energy. Environmental stewardship and economic success can coexist.”
Still, she’s definitely launched her campaign with an ad designed to get their attention.
