Romney Misses Out on Crucial Ron Jeremy Endorsement

Porn star Ron Jeremy says that Romney is an "amazing father," but he'll be voting for Obama

Mitt Romney had better ditch that trip to Poland and head back to the United States posthaste to shore up his teetering adult film star base. The presumptive Republican nominee just lost Ron Jeremy's endorsement, and with it the support of millions of Americans who turn to the porn legend for political guidance. 

Getty ImagesJeremy, whose more than 2,000 adult film credits clearly make him an expert on presidential politics and the American electorate, told the Boston Herald this week that he will be casting his vote for Barack Obama.

Forget George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker, POTUS may have found a new favorite celebrity surrogate.

Despite his decision to back the current White House occupant, Jeremy (porn name: "The Hedgehog") did have some nice things to say about Romney, calling him a "good man." 

“I think the fact that he’s such an amazing father proves a lot," Jeremy said. "I give him a lot of credit. He’s raised some good sons. When a man is a really, really good father, that’s very important."

Jeremy was in town to promote Ron de Jeremy, a line of rum that its makers credit with being a harmoniously balanced orchestra of oak, fruit and spices.
