The Penobscot County Libertarians have started a new creative method of fundraising for their county affiliate. They have opened the first political Onlyfans account. We reached out to Hampden, Maine Town Councilman Allen Esposito (Elected Libertarian), who created the only fans account for his county party.
We asked him the following questions:
"We chose OnlyFans as a fundraiser because Democrats & Republicans earn money in dirtier ways than this. We are honest about it. OnlyFans doubles down on our beliefs that sex work is legitimate work and helps further legitimize this market for fundraising purposes."
What had the reaction been?
"The reaction in the community has been great! Many people are subbing every day for only $4.99 a month to help us fund upcoming state-level races and community outreach events we like to host here in the county. Those who have been against haven't been very rude, just kindly disagreed, so it's been cordial overall!"
Has it been successful?
"We've raised over $650 in 13 days. We are getting more and more subscribers daily, and this continues to grow!"
What type of content do you post?
"The content we post isn't all sexually-oriented or NSFW. We post about our meetings, goings-on in the state, community events we host or are taking part in, interviews with people like spike cohen on Kennedy, etc. The goal is to spread the word of libertarianism. Our fun joke has been spreading the word of libertarian masses with libertarian asses! Even the risque photos have libertarian tag-lines tied to them."
What will the funds go towards, and what do you need to grow?
"What we need to grow is more people to subscribe. We post content daily and have Pay Per View messages, and those are the real risque photos. But all of the proceeds go towards funding our party and our movement. We are all volunteers; no one gets paid. We are doing this strictly for the liberty movement & we need your financial support."
