That’s right, the Republican Party is the part of family values – just don’t tell Wisconsin State Senator Robert Cowles. According to an article on JS Online, Sen. Cowles Cowles has more than $50,000 invested in two companies – Rick’s Cabaret International and VCG Holding, both of which operate numerous upscale strip clubs throughout the United States. Now here’s the real kicker:

Along with owning 15 strip clubs, Rick’s Cabaret also runs an extensive number of erotic Web sites, holds an annual Gentleman’s Club Owners Expo and publishes several magazines, including TEEZE and Exotic Dancer.

The firm’s Web sites include names such as “coupletouch,” a site for swingers to meet one another; “naughtybids,” an online auction site for all things porn, such as one-on-one stripping shows and props used by porn stars in their films; and “xxxpassword,” which gives subscribers entry to unlimited porn sites for $39.95 a month.

This is the same man who last week said, “I’d like to think that I have family values.” I guess Robert Cowles’ family values just don’t extend to his investments.

    How could you possibly pass on the best line of the article?

    ““This investment stuff is sticky,” Cowles sighed.”

    Only if you’re doing it right, I guess.

    Grumps, I must have missed that the first time I read the article. That is indeed the funniest line of the article, given the subject matter.

    This is irrelevant because the wimpy Senate Democrats refused to even field a candidate against Sen. Cowles. So Senator Cowles can do whatever he wills, there is no mechanism for the voters to correct him if the Democrats refuse to even show up with a challenger on election day.

  4. Zachary says:

    James, that’s not the point.

    Did you have such comments on Edwards the adulterer or do you just attack Republicans? Do you always hold the group responsible for the action of rogue individuals? Were you incensed by Clinton getting blowjobs in the oval office?

  6. Zachary says:

    There’s no denying Edwards was a hypocrite of the highest order.

    As for Cowles, I felt his story was worth mentioning because he’s a fellow Wisconsinite who also says he likes to think he has family values. I just can’t help but wonder what constitutes “family values” in his mind, because in my mind a guy with family values doesn’t invest roughly $100,000 in adult-oriented businesses.
