Strip Club Endorses Democratic Pastor for Congress story image
PHOENIX (AP) -- An Arizona strip club has endorsed a Democratic
candidate for Congress. And the candidate, the Rev. Jarrett Maupin, says
he's happy to have the support of The Great Alaskan Bush Company of
Phoenix.

The Arizona Republic reports the strip club recently
announced its endorsement on a sign that reads: "Jarrett Maupin for
Congress `The Rev.'"

Maupin, who calls himself a member of the
Progressive Christian Coalition, says employees voted to back him
because he supports affordable student loans and all-day kindergarten.

Maupin
is running in a close race for the 7th District seat against three
other Democrats to replace retiring longtime Rep. Ed Pastor.

But
he can't vote for himself because he was convicted in 2009 of lying to
the FBI in a case involving then-Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon.Strip Club Endorses Democratic Pastor for Congress
