fancy running into you again!Unmarried elected Republican lieutenant governor Peter Kinder loves throwing money at a hot former Penthouse lady reasonably close to his own age. That “scandal” only ranks about a three out of ten because… eh, there’s the “adult lady” part. But is there some fine print? Sure: “[Tammy] Chapman alleges that while she gave the state senator private dances, he would grab her by the shoulders and aggressively try to force her head into his lap. ‘He’d pull me down to his groin — really, really hard, to the point that it hurt me,’ she says.” More scandal-ish! But it’s hardly news that all male Republicans, even closeted ones, are always aroused by spiritual, political, economic and physical violence against women, so it’s not much of an exception as scandals go. Maybe still just a six? NOH WAIT, here it is: creepy red-faced ogre Kinder continued to hang around Chapman’s place of work even after she asked him not to visit and “found her” when she went to another employer and asked her to come live at his condo in order to “snuggle up” with him. That’s Jesus-speak for “sex until your brain bleeds tumors out your ears.” Ding ding ding! Elected official sex fiends never disappoint. Who’s paying for the condo, incidentally?

Kinder’s campaign committee pays for it, because Kinder got tired of being yelled at by taxpayers for racking up $50,000 luxury hotel bills on the public’s dime while visiting St. Louis.

From the Riverfront Times:

​Tammy Chapman, the former Penthouse Pet photographed earlier this year with Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder at a south-city bar known for its “pantsless parties,” says she never had an affair with the politician — but it wasn’t for lack of trying on his part.

In fact, Chapman tells Daily RFT, Kinder was obsessed with her nearly sixteen years ago, when she was a young stripper on the East Side and he was an up-and-coming Republican state senator — to the point that she cut off all contact. Still, when he saw her at Verlin’s Bar and Grill last winter, after they hadn’t seen each other in years, she says that Kinder — who is now widely believed to be mounting a challenge to incumbent Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat — suggested she move into his Brentwood condo.

The bartender didn’t take the invitation as a platonic one. “He told me it was a big place, with a couple of bedrooms, and I could have my own — unless I wanted to come snuggle up with him,” Chapman says. “It was like going straight back to the past when he’d offer to have me come to events in Cape Girardeau all the time. I declined, declined and declined — every offer he gave me. I only danced with him because he gave me money.”

This sounds like a metaphor for the entire Tea Party. [Riverfront Times]

    Looks to me like Kinder has already got a challenge to his mounting.

    I clicked on that Riverfront Times link. Ms. Chapman's photo is, well, uplifting. The caption "Tammy Chapman, featured in this August 1992 Penthouse spread…" Somebody at that paper has quite a sense of humor!

    Meanwhile, " Chapman says. 'It was like going straight back to the past when he’d offer to have me come to events in Cape Girardeau all the time.'"

    And we all know Cape Girardeau's favorite son.

  • SorosBot

    Reading the whole article, Kirsten got one point wrong; Kinder is 56 and Chapman is 39, and when most of the stalking happened Kinder was 40 and Chapman 22. That's nowhere near "reasonably close to his own age", though at least she's an adult.

    • In terms of GOP moral equivalency, they are practically married.

      In other words, it is totally ok because a) she is a lady, and not an underage boy and b) the age differential is under 20 years. They were almost high-school sweethearts!

    • DahBoner

      Cool summers?

      "Yesterday we showed you a picture of Missouri Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, grinning broadly at a bar with an unidentified blonde.

      Today we can tell you where that photo was taken: Verlin's, a south-city bar famous for its "pantless parties." That's not to say the lieutenant governor wasn't wearing pants: The comely bartenders at Verlin's sling drinks in their undies; the patrons evidently remain fully clothed. As the bar's ad in RFT proclaims, "Every night's a pantless party.""

      "Kinder, you may recall, recently came under fire for using government money to subsidize his lavish stays at local hotels during his frequent trips to St. Louis. (He's since promised to pay back the money.)

      "Yesterday, the lieutenant governor's car, a 2009 Ford Flex, was reportedly stolen in Cape Girardeau and promptly rammed into a gun shop. The vandal then torched the car and left it burning on a county road."

      "Came under fire" and then the stolen car was burned. Well played.

      Meanwhile, I think it's pretty well known that when "stolen" cars are burned the owner is often seeking an insurance payoff of the auto loan. Just sayin…

  • Doktor Zoom

    Well, sure, Kinder's a dick, but here's another offensive story from that paper's current issue. Listen: The town of Republic, MO has banned Slaughterhouse-Five from the high school library. Happily, there's good news, too: the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library has pledged to give away up to 150 copies of the book to Republic students who ask for a copy.

    EDIT: Oh, hey, and if you think that's a good idea, the Vonnegut Library is also asking for donations of $5 to cover sending books to Republic kids. I just PayPal'd mine. (Worth hitting the link just to see their browser-tab icon)
