Tampa Strip Clubs Prepare For GOP Convention With Sarah Palin Stripper, Online Chat Rooms
Family values by day, topless dancers by night?
With high-rolling Republicans flooding into Tampa Bay, Fla., this August for the party's convention, local strip club owners hope many of them spill into their champagne rooms.
The Tampa Bay area boasts more than 40 clubs. Some expect their business to more than quadruple during the massive, four-day Republican National Convention, WFLA-TV reported.
To get a leg up on the competition, some are adding special attractions to help entice GOP bigs.
So while top Republicans work the conventioneers during the day, a Sarah Palin doppelganger will be working the same crowd at night. A strip club called Thee DollHouse, which got a $1 million facelift in advance of the big event, has hired a look-alike - sporting glasses and her trademark updo - to entertain hard-working Republicans after-hours.
Tampa Bay was the setting for the Channing Tatum strip flick, "Magic Mike," but no word on whether a "Magic Mitt" will be entertaining Republican ladies at any of the male clubs.
