In addition to being a cheerleader in the attract mode for the original NBA Jam, former Playboy model Kerri Hoskins Branson also portrayed Sonya Blade in several Mortal Kombat games, beginning with Mortal Kombat 3 in 1995.

Not surprisingly, her Playboy and video game gigs are not mentioned in this biography and Q&A for candidates for the Kane County, Ill. Board. Branson's issues are farmland preservation and children's health initiatives and not say, tossing her opponents around or slamming them into the ground using only her legs.


Kane County is in suburban Chicago; Branson's vying for its district 18 seat.
