A former porn star has qualified to run for a seat on the Palm Beach County School Board. 

David Mech of Boca Raton wants the District 3 seat currently held by board member Karen Brill.  She faces another challenger as well, candidate John Michael Hartman. 

38-year old Mech was known in the adult film industry as "Dave Pounder."  He began a math tutoring business, the Happy Fun-Math Tutor company, in 2010.  He also produces documentary films about the porn industry. 

The Palm Beach Post reports that Brill made headlines earlier this year with a short-lived proposal to enforce a dress code for parents on school property.
