Jaxine Bubis, erotic grammy: Demand for $54 million from state Republicans goes national

Last month, we told you about Jaxine Bubis, a political hopeful whose campaign for embattled state senator John Morse's seat was derailed after it was revealed she'd written several steamy books -- read excerpts below -- and referred to herself as a "grammy who writes erotic romance."

Now, however, she's making national headlines on the likes of Fox News due to her demand for $54 million from the state Republican party for allegedly, and unfairly, engineering her primary defeat. Jaw-slackening details below.

As we've reported, Bubis's campaign website, which is no longer online, described her motivation to replace Morse in decidedly un-steamy fashion:
The time has come to take a bold stand for our Constitutional rights. ​ I spent the majority of my life in Colorado growing up right here in Colorado Springs. ​ After traveling to different places with my husband Dan, we chose to return to Colorado Springs because we love the people and share the values represented throughout this great city.  Unfortunately, I've become increasingly concerned with those in power aligning with East Coast politicians in a radical attempt to strip away our Constitutional rights.  Whether it's the blatant attack on our right to keep and bear arms or the utter disregard of our First Amendment, things are swiftly moving in the wrong direction. ​ I joined with many of you in asking our elected officials to protect our Constitutional rights only to be blatantly ignored and even told, our concerns weren't important.
The website listed a number of high-profile Republicans in Bubis's corner, including Senator Kevin Lundberg and Representative Janak Joshi. But not everyone was a fan. A post on ColoradoPols.com item noted that Bubis's authorial sideline had been revealed in an e-mail sent to fellow Republicans by a supporter of a GOP rival also hoping for a shot at Morse's seat. He's been identified as Paul Paradis, owner of Colorado Springs gun shop Paradise Sales, who says he was tipped off by an unnamed third party. Included in the e-mail were a few lines from Beantown Heat, a 2004 opus credited to Bubis's pen name, Jaxine Daniels. Some of the more explicit language was deleted so as not to shock delicate sensibilities -- but we think you can handle it without censorship. The section reads:
Now two fingers were deep inside her. She could feel herself clamp down on him, aching for his cock inside her. But then he leaned down and began sucking and licking her, as his fingers moved slowing in and out. In and out.
The horizontal mambo-ing doesn't end there. Here are the paragraphs immediately before the lines above....
"You're not holding still." His voice was tantalizing. "And do you find this more provocative than if I read you the piece you read me that night? Please fuck me.... Shall I read it to you?"

"No. But please fuck me."

"In time, baby, in time."

...and the ones that follow:
He moved back up, his mouth just a breath from hers.

"Now, taste your own passion."

His kiss was warm and wet with her pleasure. His tongue teased her lips, her tongue. She kissed him back, pulling him hard against her.

"Please..." The fire built and banked, built and banked. He was inside her head, inside her body. How else would he know when she edged near explosion? He wouldn't let her go. And then he was gone.

Oh yeah: These two are known as the Professor and Maryann. Bet Gilligan is jealous.
