GOP to outspend Dems on strippers at convention

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

They may be cheapskates when it comes to granny, but the GOP appears to love spending cash on strippers. Maybe they view it as young voter outreach?
But if past conventions are any indicator, Republicans are likely to outspend Democrats heavily at topless bars and strip clubs, says Angelina Spencer. She heads the Association of Club Executives, an organization for the nation's 4,000 "gentleman's club" owners. The group talked to members in the host cities of past conventions.

"When we compared spending," Spencer notes, "the average showed Republicans spending $150 per person at an adult club, versus Democrats, who averaged $50 a person."
I did a double-take thinking this was The Onion story about the GOP convention, but no, it's CNN.
