From politics to porn: Ex-Republican strategist becomes X-rated star

Florida – Patrice Thibodeau was once deeply involved with the dirty business of politics – then he decided to make a screeching turn onto a very different career path.

The 33-year-old served as a digital director for the Connecticut State Republican Party from January 2018 to December 2019, after which he worked for the conservative media portal Project Veritas.

Last month, however, the former public official announced a pretty big change in his life.

Until recently, he had only shared political content and commentary on his Twitter channel. Yet, Thibodeau pivoted and invited his internet followers to check out his latest videos – on PornHub!

Posting under the persona "Jean Jacque The C**k," he has since published countless clips on Twitter and at least 25 films on PornHub.

"The making of a porn star," Thibodeau said in a recent video. "I went from politics, now I'm going into porn."

Thibodeau often boasts about his "endowment" and slams his haters.

"It's liberating," he told the New York Post.

He has also left Connecticut behind and now lives in Florida.

"I used to work in Republican politics … They hate me," the newly-minted adult performer said. "They don’t want to talk to me. I'm in Florida doing porn."

"My private parts get more retweets than people I worked with," Thibodeau added on Twitter.

It seems he has found his true calling.

"You do you, and I'll do me," he said in his defense of his new lifestyle.
