Pete Sessions' Burlesque

Republican Congressman Pete Sessions held a fundraiser in Las Vegas. Never mind, that his congressional district is in Texas, there was campaign money to raise. Eyebrows followed when the Washington Post reported the host of the event, Forty Deuce, a burlesque club. Poles, scantily clad women cavorting to loud music?

When politicians have to defend one form of nipple covering while being offended by another, it’s not their day. Better luck next time, Pete. By the way, did Sessions thank the casino operators and payday lenders for picking up the tab?
