GOP Assembly candidate sells sex toys for women

This year's Most Interesting Job for an Assembly Candidate Award goes to District 5 Republican Stepfanie Velez-Gentry, who runs a business specializing in... well, what amounts to naughty Tupper Ware parties.

Velez-Gentry, 29, who's running against South Jersey power broker George Norcross's brother, Donald Norcross, runs Nookie Parties LLC, which organizes "adult romance parties for women & couples." 

Velez-Gentry's company, which she founded in 2007, sells sex toys, lingerie, games and other erotic knickknacks at customers' home parties.  The company's Web site lists dozens of representatives all over the country, and features pictures of Velez-Gentry modeling a couple of her products. 

Velez-Gentry said that her company has helped save marriages and that "when the moms and dads are happy, the whole family is happy."  

She said that the business has also been a great networking tool to promote her candidacy.

"The women voters that are out there are very intrigued and inspired by me," she said. "I've gotten wonderful feedback."  

Camden County Republican Chairman Rick DeMichele said that not only is he aware of Velez-Gentry's profession, but he salutes her for it.

"I support anybody who, A: wants to run for Assembly to make New Jersey a better place and who, B: clearly has an entrepreneurial drive and spirit about her," DeMichele told PolitickerNJ.com.  "There's no abundance of good, high paying jobs here in New Jersey, so I salute anyone who can get out there and make their own living.  She's a small business owner like so many others, and in many respects the people who are in Trenton can learn a lot from her."

"This is the only Tea Party group that endorsed Mitt Romney. These guys are the Vichy French of the Tea Party movement. They're the guys who say 'Viva la France,' and then you can't find them when the fighting starts. Come on." - GOP strategist Rick Shaftan, on the Independence Hall Tea Party group.
