Making laws by day, making love by night: A lot of politicians do it, but not many get paid for it.

According to the Associated Press, Swedish politico Goeran Eurenius was caught with his pants down when the Goteborg-Posten, a daily newspaper, revealed that he had moonlighted as a porn star.


The 47-year-old Eurenius is a local councilor in Haerryda, 310 miles southwest of Stockholm, and has "acted" in at least 14 pornographic movies.

The news came as a surprise to other members of the Leftist Party, known for supporting feminist and anti-pornography views. The local chapter Eurenius belongs to is now deciding whether to expel the multitalented lawmaker.

Eurenius, who was elected to a four-year term in 1998, defended his extracurricular endeavors in a telephone interview with the AP. He said, "I want to work both with politics and pornography."

Maybe President Clinton has a future after all.
