Butch Otter—the latest in a long line of US Governors making bad film choices. (via KBOI2)

The fact that a guy named Butch Otter (I hardly even know 'er) was in a porn film is not very surprising. The fact that the Governor of Idaho was in one, however, is almost as shocking as the fact that the Governor of Idaho is named Butch Otter. Why did he think this was a good idea? Well, he didn't. He agreed to appear a long time ago (when he was merely the Lieutenant Governor, see) in a movie called "A Time To Revenge," which was low-budget but nonetheless fairly legit. After all, it starred Paul Gleason (the principal from Breakfast Club) and Elizabeth Berkley (Saved by the Bell, Showgirls), and you know anything Elizabeth Berkley is in will be a monument to taste.

The movie centered around a feud between rancher families, and Otter played a corrupt sherriff who says some ridiculous things like "I was elected to keep the peace around here, and by God, that's what I'm going to do," and "the Major called me this morning and told me you stole his cattle truck last night with some of these cattle in it." He also helps end a bar fight by nodding to a young woman in the bar and telling one of the guys "pretty little thing waiting for you over there." As the NY Daily News puts it, though, "that's as sexy as Otter gets." In case you think the tale of a rancher feud in Idaho is boring, here's a gif of someone blowing up a horse trailer with a rocket launcher:

Then, everything changed. It's still called "A Time To Revenge," but now there are lots of sex scenes, because the project was abandoned in the 90s (after a lot of filming had already been done) because the production company went bankrupt. Someone else bought it, brought in a few actors who were less skittish about nudity than Elizabeth Berkley, and then, voila, porn.

Accordingly, I was very pleased to impersonate a human on the Internet.
