That’s the tabloid-worthy email address Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, created to solicit information regarding the identity of the man who purportedly threatened the adult-film star and her newborn child in 2011.
According to Daniels, the encounter occurred in the weeks after she spoke to InTouch magazine about her alleged affair with now-President Donald Trump. A man approached her, she says, in a Las Vegas parking lot, where she was unloading her car with her baby daughter in the backseat. “Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,” he warned, adding that, “that’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”
The mysterious enforcer has so far succeeded in evading the spotlight, swept up in a fast-moving political scandal with countless other points of intrigue.
But on Tuesday morning, Daniels and Avenatti joined the hosts of ABC’s The View to share a riveting new development: a forensic sketch of the man, along with the promise of a $100,000 reward for information leading to his identification.
The internet, of course, immediately did what it does best: identify the man’s pop-culture look-alikes.
