Sex Toys for Troy King campaign
Former Libertarian Alabama gubernatorial candidate Loretta Nall, who made headlines because her boobs gave a columnist at the Montgomery Independent, Bob Ingram, the vapors (see my post “Boobage and the governor's race in Alabama“) has a new and different campaign going on.
She's caught on to a story of another man down there with the vapors, attorney general Troy King, who is appalled that the state's anti-obscenity laws are vague — so vague that they haven't been able to shut the doors of sex toys stores in the state. The background, from the Birmingham News:
Alabama Attorney General Troy King might ask the Legislature to amend the state's anti-obscenity law after a Jefferson County judge ruled this month that part of the law was too vague to force closure of a Hoover store that sells sexual devices.
…[Circuit Judge Robert] Vance Jr.] ruled against the city of Hoover's contention that the Love Stuff store violated a state law prohibiting an “adult-only enterprise” from operating within 1,000 feet of homes, churches, schools, day care centers or other places “frequented by minors.”
Vance ruled the law was too vague to enforce because it did not define “adult-only enterprise.”
“While Love Stuff clearly sells a number of items that are for adults only, this Court lacks any standards to decide whether it is an `adult-only enterprise,'” wrote Vance, who spent an hour inspecting the store.
Along with the sexual devices and sexually explicit videos, books and magazines, the store also sells costumes, shoes, lingerie and other items. Anyone can enter the store, but the most explicit items are kept in an area restricted to those 18 and older. The restricted area amounted to about 26 to 29 percent of the floor space and about 32 to 36 percent of the inventory value, according to trial testimony.
Loretta has launched an effort on her blog to help AG Troy out.
Now, I only have six words to say to AG King about his anti-dildo crusade..FROM MY COLD DEAD FINGERS TROY!!!
I think that Troy may not have any experience with devices used in sexual pleasure, so, I am starting a crusade to introduce Troy King to the fabulous world of ben-wa balls, rubber weiners and pocket tooties. I want to encourage all of my readers to purchase a sex toy of some sort and send it to Alabama Attorney General Troy King. I also think there is something fundamentally wrong with a grown, college educated, elected official who seems to obsess over what other consenting adults in his home state might be using in the privacy of their bedrooms. I mean…don't we have much more serious problems in Alabama that our Attorney General should address?
