The Democrats sure are having quite a week in their war on women. CNN anchor and hypocrite Carol Costello gets slammed for laughing at violence on conservative women, Anthony Weiner can’t keep from being creepy on social media AGAIN, and now this – Democrat Gubernatorial candidate in Florida Charlie Crist acknowledges that he receives donations from strip clubs, and he’s proud of it!
But that’s not all, folks! From Fox News:
The contributions to Crist include $50,000 donation to his independent political committee from Joe Rodriguez, owner of Cheetah’s in Hallandale Beach, and $40,000 from two companies that operate the Scarlett’s chain, J.W. Lee Properties and S.B. Productions Inc.
Law officers investigated and raided Rodriguez’s club in 2009, charging 16 dancers and two managers with prostitution and cocaine possession charges. Rodriguez was not charged with a crime.
Charges against both managers were dropped and charges against the dancers either were dropped or reduced to disorderly conduct, said Luke Lirot, a Tampa lawyer who represented them. Lirot said the club is still operating.
A former dancer at the Scarlett’s in Hallandale has filed a class action lawsuit alleging its operators wrongly classified her and other dancers as contractors rather than employees, failing to pay them minimum wage or any wage at all.
Stay classy there Dems!!
