She could appear with a Bernie Sanders lookalike and pull in more money than most adult stars.

Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced she will resign from her position as the chair of the Democratic National Committee this week, after leaked emails showed the DNC favored Hillary Clinton during the primary.

But not to worry, Wasserman Schultz has other offers on the table, most notably to do porn. The porn site XHamster, released a statement on Monday:

 XHamster was shocked at Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s actions to try to sabotage Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention. We are pleased that she has stepped down and are offering her a chance to redeem herself to all the Bernie bros out there by performing in an adult video with adult’s own Adam Wood, who bears a striking resemblance to Sen. Sanders. We hope she seriously considers this offer. 

The offer is for $50,000, which is very good considering that a female Ted Cruz lookalike was paid $10,000 to appear in a film by XHamster. And Business Insider estimates that the average female porn star makes only $50,000 a year.

Unlike most industries, pay in the porn seems to favor women, who are generally paid per sex act, while men are paid a flat fee per day. An MSNBC article breaks it down: “In general, males average $500-$600 per scene or day. Better known male performers can earn $700-$900; superstars up to $1,500.”

Meanwhile, Business Insider estimates that a woman can receive up to $4,000 for double penetration. So depending on how savvy Wasserman Schultz is at negotiating, she could earn even more.

However, her current base salary is $174,000 a year.  So maybe she should at least wait around for a counteroffer from Vivid.
