We Elected a Stripper to the School Board

Maine--the way life should be!!! Portland elected a stripper to the school board over a former CEO. She also is a teacher at an alternative school...a charter school. Now we are working on joining Canada! So pack your bags and come on up and leave the winger nuts behind! And you thought we just count moose for entertainment! Bring booze..the winters get long and those moose are really ugly mothers ....

8. Why don't you look it up?

You're the one making the claim, you should provide links to back it up. You did the same thing in your Papa John thread.

13. Interesting: she's a Green Independent, not a Dem or GOP

That seems to be the significance here. According to the article you can see posted below (just click on the link), her 'burlesque' hobby never came up during the campaign.

Good for her for defeating a bankster/finance entrenched competitor!

Burlesque dancer wiggles into seat on Portland school board

On Tuesday, Holly Seeliger, a 26-year-old teacher and burlesque dancer, won the District 2 seat on the Portland Board of Public Education, getting 59 percent of the vote to defeat a candidate with an ideal pedigree to serve the school district.

That candidate, Jeanne Swanton, has 17 years of financial experience, including a stint as a vice president of Citigroup. Unlike Seeliger, she has children in the school system and is active in the Reiche Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization.

Swanton, 45, also had a significant fundraising advantage over Seeliger, who got one contribution, of $100 (from the Green Independent Party). Seeliger's pre-election finance report shows she spent $690 on palm cards and yard signs.

10. "Burlesque dancer" != "Stripper"

Google searches are a lot more successful when people use terminology that matches the "fucking" words which are actually used in the story.

3. That probably makes her more qualified than the average school board member.

4. I'm reminded of Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" video

Is the teacher in this 80's video per chance now retired and the winner of said school board election?
