(Semi-)Political breasts for charity. Really.

Remember Mary Carey, the porn star who came in 10th (with 11,179 votes!) in 2003’s gubernatorial recall election?

From Reuters, via Yahoo:

carey.jpgPorn star Mary Carey, who shot to fame by running for California governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger, unveiled plans on Tuesday to auction off her autographed, recently removed breast implants for charity.

Carey said the size 36-D implants were taken out two weeks ago and replaced with larger 36-DDDs and while under anesthesia she realized they could be used to raise money for breast cancer research.

“The doctors asked me what I wanted to do with them and I said, ‘You know what, I’m going to keep them and try to sell them. Because my grandmother had breast cancer,” Carey told Reuters in an interview.

The 27-year-old star of such adult films as “Boobsville Sorority Girls” and “Big Breasted Beauties” will be seen in the upcoming VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” and said that during taping she kicked addictions to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and alcohol.

“Now that I’m sober I wanted a new physical state to go along with my new mental state,” Carey said. “I thought the auction would be a great way to spread some holiday cheer and make sure someone out there would have a Mary Mary Christmas.”

The gift that… keeps on giving? Dunno. But at last check, the auction’s bidding stands at $6,400 with A PORTION of the proceeds earmarked to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. I’m kinda hoping the winning bidder will be the casino which paid $25,000 for William Shatner’s kidney stone last year to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
