Kinder Talks About Strip Club Visits

"Hoping to curb what has become a growing distraction to his political ambitions, Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R) today talked more about his strip-club visits and how he came to be photographed with a stripper he knew," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Kinder, who is widely expected to run for governor next year, said he first visited the strip club the mid-1990s and returned about 10 times. He said he stopped visiting the club after he concluded that it contradicted his religious beliefs.

Said Kinder: "I came to realize that this is not consistent with my upbringing. I'm a Christian. I was raised in a good family, and I thought, you know, continuing to go there is leading me down the wrong path."
