Bill Montgomery Joins the Morality Cops in Hating on Strippers

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, the anti-stripper candidate.
If you really trust your local politicians (again, we'll pause for laughter), then they're really serious about hating on strippers.

The lobbyists at the Center for Arizona Policy released more local candidates' answers to their questionnaires for this year's elections, including county and city offices, and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery gave the most Bill Montgomery answers you could expect.

Weed -- no. Strippers -- no. Porn -- no. Supporting the gays -- no. Putting religious content on government property -- yes.

In addition to the scores of current or wannabe lawmakers who support "[p]rohibiting touching or tipping dancers and fully nude performances in sexually oriented businesses," Montgomery said he supports it too.

Montgomery also supports "[e]nforcing existing laws vigorously against the sale and distribution of obscene materials."

That one's a gimme, since Montgomery publicly warned porn actors that they may be guilty of prostitution.

In a symbolic middle-finger to the wishes of Arizona voters, Montgomery circled that he supports regulating hours and locations of medical marijuana dispensaries, but just had to write in "But oppose all operations in general."

On the other hand, it's refreshing to see Libertarian candidate Michael Kielsky turned in the survey.

He opposes the stripper-tipping ban and porno prosecution.

In fact, he writes, "[I] oppose all restrictions on freedom of speech; oppose censorship."

He didn't even answer a question about whether he supports providing tax breaks to certain industries over others.

"Support all tax breaks, taxation is theft," he wrote.

To reuse a couple lines Kielsky told New Times in 2010, "Bill Montgomery would make a great neighbor, but I don't want him as my county attorney. He thinks it's OK to use the power of government to punish people for things he feels are immoral."

I was able to listen to Michael Kielsky talk with an audience at the Phoenix School of Law (Bill Montgomery was there as well).  I found the emphasis Kielsky has with the principles found in our foundational documents (the Arizona and US Constitutions) to be heartening.  Why his opponent (Montgomery) thinks that they do not regulate the application of mere statutes is worrisome.

There is a choice this year, either more paternalistic "law enforcement", or applying the power of the office for the protection of individuals and their rights. Chose wisely. @kielsky

The funny part is that these fascists oppose all these things like strippers, health care, mental help for people and gun control laws, but yet they allow people to mass murder others, take away the rights of innocent people and they also promote business and screw everything else.

So it seems Bill Montgomery hates the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the voter approved laws of Arizona. Perhaps Bill needs to find a third-world dictator to go to work for, they love suppressing the will of the people. Or is that what he wants to turn this country into?

Another nerd with too many paperclip hits to the back of the head in Junior High.  Pathetic.

When Arpaio ran his underhanded "Re-elect Sheriff Joe in 2012" campaign back in 2010, which obviously was a manipulation of the election to make sure that he could "fund Montgomery" by going after Romley, I was pissed, but in the end, I decided to withhold opinion of Montgomery until I saw what he was made of.

 

I have over the past year and a half formed an opinion.  Can anyone guess what it is?

The fact that Monty filled out a survey from the bigoted morons at CAP says all you need to know about Billy Bozo!

 

Please! Tell Me SOMEONE is running against Montgomery!

Time to go, you should have never been elected to begin with.  Now that your godfather Boss Hog is going down I would assume your career is over as well. 

From what I have seen it's often people like you who are the closet offenders of everything they say they are against.  Like people being against people using MMJ for pain but I bet  keep some Vicodin around just in case they feel the need.  Against strippers but as soon as they are out of town they go to the clubs and rent porn in their room.  Seen it a million times.

 @WhoKnows Filling out a survey is not to be disparaged.  The CAP survey can tell you whether a candidate supports or opposes certain ideas.

 @WhoKnows LOL.  No.  I have a tattoo on my ass that says "Kiss Here"
