At ham breakfast, Kinder sticks to his story on strip club saga

SEDALIA, Mo. – Dogged for a week by questions about strip club visits he made in the mid 1990s, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder tried to put the matter behind him today at the Governor’s Ham Breakfast at the state fair.

“I did five interviews yesterday,” Kinder said. “I’ve said all I’m saying.”

Asked how his answers had been received, Kinder said: “I’m getting a terrific reception….”

….Kinder initially declined to comment but he changed his approach and did several radio and newspaper interviews Wednesday.

In the interviews, he said he was not proud that he visited the club about 10 times when he was a state senator. He said he stopped going when he realized it was “not consistent with my upbringing.”

Kinder blamed a “Democratic operative” for the story coming out now.

Asked at a news conference after the breakfast whether his campaign had anything to do with the story, Nixon said: “All this stuff’s kind of disappointing, disturbing. I really don’t have much to say about it. Let him answer the questions….”

“….I did five interviews yesterday,” Kinder said. “I’ve said all I’m saying.”

Asked how his answers had been received, Kinder said: “I’m getting a terrific reception….”

Think about that for a moment.
