Last month, I wrote a post about a batshit crazy politician from Nevada who claims that cancer is a fungus that can be flushed out with baking soda. That politician–Michele Fiore–also “gained notoriety for telling a ‘colored’ colleague that racism was a thing of the past, and for calling for ‘hot little girls’ on college campuses to be armed.”
Earlier today, Arturo Garcia of Raw Story posted an article about Cliven Bundy supporter Fiore–who has become a “figure of curiosity” in the Nevada state legislature–once having had hollywood aspirations. You see, nearly ten years ago, Fiore co-wrote and produced a “little-seen” movie called Siren.
Garcia said that what the trailer for Siren “appears to show is a basic-late night-cable quality rags-to-riches story, with Fiore playing a housewife who ventures into the music business, only to run into not only industry pressures, but tensions at home.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Fiore and her husband made the film on a $1 million budget.

Los Angeles Times:
In the role she wrote for herself, Fiore-Kaime, portrays Storm Fagan, a wife and mother who endures the slings and arrows of music industry skeptics to follow her dreams of rock stardom — Fiore-Kaime’s real childhood dream. A script rewrite was done by Robert Gosnell (“Firewalker”), and a cast that includes Erin Gray (“Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”) and Gary Graham (“JAG,” “Star Trek: Enterprise”) was hired. To raise the film’s $1-million budget, Fiore-Kaime and her husband, Nat Kaime, and her mother refinanced their homes and pooled their savings accounts.
“She’s so driven I can’t ever think about holding her back. I never want to do that,” said Kaime, who operates a home healthcare business in Las Vegas with his wife. “When she came here and did this, it was just one of many incredible things that she has done that I couldn’t even ponder.”
To convincingly portray her stay-at-home mom to diva transformation, Brooklyn, N.Y.-born Fiore-Kaime gained 20 pounds, ballooning to 189 pounds, then lost 30 more in 10 weeks on a diet of roasted chicken and water.
