  • CENSORED: St. Louis paper strategically edited Penthouse photo of stripper who recounted dealings with Missoouri lt. gov.
Ever heard of Peter Kinder? Arkansas Lt. Gov. Mark Darr drops his name a lot. Kinder helped Darr raise money during his 2010 campaign and Darr recently signed onto Kinder's legally dubious effort to wedge himself into a lawsuit attacking health care reform.

Who is Kinder? He's lieutenant governor Missouri. He also appears to be kinky. Or was before he found religion. Ask Kinder about this next time Darr brings him to town.

Missouri Lt. Gov Peter Kinder (R) has spoken out about the allegations that he long frequented a strip club and sort-of stalked a stripper who worked there, admitting that he used to go to the strip club in question but maintaining that it was years ago. "I came to realize that this is not consistent with my upbringing. I'm a Christian," he said.

... Kinder's comments were in response to allegations from former Penthouse model Tammy Chapman, who claims Kinder was a frequent customer when she was an "entertainer" at said club in Illinois.

She told the River-Front Times earlier this month that sixteen years ago Kinder had repeatedly tried to sleep with her while she was working there, and would shower her with gifts when he made his multiple weekly trips to the club. But, Chapman claims, she cut off contact after a while. "He became very aggressive with me," she says. "I couldn't tolerate what he was making me do."

Chapman claims that she saw Kinder again last winter when he came into Verlin's Bar & Grill, a St. Louis bar that boasts the slogan "every night's a pantless party," where she worked at the time. According to Chapman, Kinder recognized her and suggested she move into his condo. She then took a picture of her and Kinder, which she gave to the Times.

At first, Kinder denied the allegations — and claimed it was part of a conspiracy by Missouri's Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon. "Like most people I am not proud of every place I have been but this woman's bizarre story is not true," Kinder said in a statement last week. "The Democrats have tried to use these tactics against me in the past and they have failed. Jay Nixon may want to make up false stories about the past, but I, like most Missourians, remain focused on the issues that are important to Missourians like jobs and education."
