Kingston, PA -- One Democratic voter from Luzerne County has decided to bare all to convince people to vote.

The woman's risqué pictures were posted Tuesday night and they are already starting to go viral with 100,000 views within 24 hours

The question is will those pictures actually bring out more people to the polls?

Chelsy Zelasko, 25, from Shavertown, tells Newswatch 16 she is a registered Democrat. She is trying to open her own business, so she plans to vote for Republican Donald Trump on November 8, hoping he brings jobs to the area.

"I accepted more of his views on policy and health care and his overall demeanor," said Zelasko.

In an effort to get more people to vote, she decided to take photos for the Scranton-based entertainment website, "Better Than The Weekend." They appear in the "Dreams Exposed" section.

In the mildly suggestive photos, she is covered by guns or an American flag.

"Better Than The Weekend," told Newswatch 16 the website wanted to feature someone who would proudly express which candidate they support.

Chelsy insists this is not a publicity stunt.

"I feel like so many people are afraid of voting just because of the factor if you talk about who you are going to vote for people instantly jump down your throat about it," said Zelasko.

When asked about Trump's demeaning talk about women, Zelasko stressed that the Republican nominee shouldn't be held accountable for what was said in private.

"I just feel like we shouldn't hold that against him or hold on the pedestal," said Zelasko.

People Newswatch 16 spoke to in Public Square with were less than thrilled about the pictures. Most said there are better avenues to encourage voting like knocking doors or passing out letters.

"Why would you want to expose yourself? People are going to vote how they are going to vote by now. I think and I think that people are going a little bit overboard," said Elaine Pollick of Wilkes-Barre.

"You see, like, these young kids take pride in their candidate and want to get involved, but I just think a lot of people take it a little too far," said Randy Lisnock, a junior at King's College.

Zelasko hopes by seeing these photos, people will be inspired to head to polls on Election Day, November 8.

    But why would she have anything substantial to say about trump when she willingly objectifies herself ??? If anything this is sad that people think this is an okay thing do.

  • E

    Where is the republican outrage over the disrespect to the flag? I guess that only applies when it’s a black man protesting something.

  • Lisa

    Let me get this straight… a nearly naked woman is what is going to get voters to the polls??? No, this is clearly a sad attempt for publicity. You can’t urge voters to the polls clothed?? Disgusting.

  • denise

    You don’t the right to tail the people how to vote if you want sex with Mr. Trump be my guest you been use thank 6ou

  • Stinky

    Wow you are sexist! Women have a right to wear whatever they want! I’m sure you freak out when trump uses disrespectful language like that


    She is a gun girl. That’s all that matters to me. I hope she opens a Gun Shop
    Go Trump

  • pat

    I think this will hurt us, not help us. Some who were undecided will sway the other way. They will think, there’s a deplorable, I don’t want to be one.


    This has gotten me to rise to the occasion and go vote early, I applaud this young woman for so reverently supporting our great and supreme President Trump. I’m glad she’s strong enough to stand up to radical feminists who want to body shame her. I have no doubt that she will be able to persuade many undecided white males, perhaps even sway some supporters of that dried out prune dinosaur snake-hillary.

    All she wants is attention. This whole thing is pathetic. But hey, at least you can get a laugh out of it! Check out the article on Better Than the Weekend to see how terrible and tasteless the photos actually are.

    PA Police Raid Offices Over Voter Fraud
    ShareTweet/ NOVEMBER 2, 2016/ SOCIETY screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-1-47-12-am

    After attaining a warrant from the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office last Friday afternoon, state police have raided a Delaware County political field office seeking evidence of possible voter-registration fraud. The target is the Norwood office of Field LLC, a national organization that does street work for Democrats. Investigators revealed they were searching for documents, financial information, and lists of employees at the office.

    The nature of the probe is uncertain, but officials reveal that they were were looking for “templates . . . utilized to construct fraudulent voter registration forms” and “completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms.”

    Field spokesperson Matt Dorf released the following statement on the matter regarding the 2001 established company:

    “Field is now working with county officials to provide them with information on our program and applications they are investigating. In keeping with our regular practice, we will work aggressively with authorities to seek the prosecution of anyone involved in wrongdoing.[Field is a nationally recognized grassroots organizing firm founded to help progressive organizations, advocacy groups, and members of the Democratic family take their public engagement and electoral strategies to the next level.”

    In 2012, Field filed thousands of new voter registration cards just prior to the registration deadline. Some of cards were found to be fraudulent.

    In 2012, Cincinnati police arrested a former Ohio University student working in Field on charges of forging and fabricating 22 signatures on a petition drive.

    This young lady is a quality act. She’s intelligent, hard working and trustworthy. While in college she babysat for my daughter. It’s pleasing to see her express her opinion in a positive way, instead of following all the negativity we have witnessed.

    • Gary

      You are sick. Getting half naked is considered “positive” to You? Well when your daughter ends up as a topless dancer or stripper, you can blame your “positive parenting” and applaud your dirty , half naked babysitter that you were probably trying to fondle, like Trump does the women he crossed paths with. Ps- are you sperm donor and deadbeat dad? Sounds it on the moral factor

      • wow Gary settle down

        wow Gary that was all pretty personal and harsh don’t you think??? so I guess it is very, very bad to say positive things about someone who did absolutely nothing wrong but it is then OK to say despicable things about someone you have never met and have no idea what kind of person they are?? comments board is for people to peacefully voice their opinions not be personally attacked and insulted… I think you need to take a long look in the mirror Gary and make some improvements in your own life…. good luck to you man as it appears you have an uphill battle ahead of you…

  • Mandy

    I agree with her and appreciate what she is doing but the only bodies that are suppose to be draped in the American flag are those of our fallen heros. Never drape the flag over your body or shoulders. It violates the Federal flag code. Otherwise if you have it use it. Go girl!

  • Bring Pride back to the USA

    Ahhh, Old Fashion American ingenuity, far surpasses the freebee’s that the Demorats use as bait for votes!
