Christie Hefner (as in, Hugh's daughter) was a staunch supporter of President Elect Obama during the campaign and now, is apparently leaving the nudity business. Now she's politicking for a spot on team Obama, but what position might that be? Some have suggested: Secretary of Centerfolds. We're thinking: Plastic Surgeon General. In Hefner's own words:
"Like many Americans, I've been struck by the call to service that was the hallmark of the campaign, and I was an early supporter of Senator Obama, now President-Elect Obama, and I believe deeply in what he wants to do for our country."After running the most popular porno mag in the country for the last 20 years, we imagine that Christie should be well prepared to enter the world of politics. The biggest challenge might just be dealing with a much sleazier grade of sleazeballs.
In these hard economic times, even Playboy has been feeling the pinch of declining ad sales. The company is looking to axe 55 jobs and leave another 25 positions unfilled. Christie insists that the struggles in bunnyland have nothing to do with her stepping down.
