Political "poll" of a different color

Plenty of politicians worry about the polls.

But an actress-turned-lawmaker in southern Mexico isn't concerned about a public opinion survey.

She's in trouble over a pole -- a stripper pole.

A racy clip on YouTube shows Dalia Perez playing a table dancer and doing a pole dance strip.

Mexico's most-watched morning TV news show broadcast the clip yesterday.

The film was never released but the DVD is a hot item on the underground market.

Perez says opponents want to discredit her because she's entered the male realm of politics.
