Porn star lawyer Avenatti takes his fighting message to Iowa

August 10, 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michael Avenatti’s crusade for the porn actress taking on the president has already catapulted him to cable news stardom and endeared him to many frustrated liberals.

Now the self-styled “dragon slayer” is taking his message to Iowa Democrats — who will have a huge influence in the 2020 White House race.

And the attorney insists this foray into early-voting terrain is not a stunt.

As the lawyer representing Stormy Daniels, Avenatti has become one of President Donald Trump’s leading critics. But he says he is not just “proposing this to get under the president’s skin.”

For now, Avenatti has plenty of spotlight as top 2020 prospects avoid Iowa. He toured the Iowa State Fair on Thursday and is scheduled for the Democratic Wing Ding in Clear Lake on Friday.
