Pastor gets endorsement from strip club
PHOENIX, ARIZONA- A Democrat running for Congress got an endorsement from a strip club and he says he's happy to have the vote of confidence.
The Rev. Jarrett Maupin says he's happy to have the support of The Great Alaskan Bush Company of Phoenix.
Maupin calls himself a member of the Progressive Christian Coalition and says employees at the club voted to endorse him because he supports affordable student loans and all-day kindergarten.
He's in a close race for the 7th District with three other Democrats.
The strip club announced its endorsement with a sign that reads: "Jarrett Maupin for Congress 'The Rev.'"
Ironically, "The Rev" can't vote for himself because of a conviction five-years ago for lying to the FBI.
