Strippers in Prince George’s County scored another victory when a federal judge ruled that strip clubs in Prince George’s County can keep on serving alcohol because a state law enabling the county’s licensing board to revoke liquor licenses issued to strip bars violates equal protection and free speech under the Constitution. Somewhere, I’m sure James Madison and Abraham Lincoln are smiling because I think they had exactly strip clubs in Prince George’s County in their minds putting together the 1st and 4th Amendments. I’m sure they would have been offended by the sensibilities of the Prince George’s County law that required – among it other draconian measures – no touching the patrons. No lap dances? The inhumanity.
Why another victory for Prince George’s County strippers? No reason. I just thought it was a fun title.
