And sharing space on the statewide GOP ticket with Akin is that other great champion of women, Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder.
Ingrate former Penthouse Pet Tammy Chapman, a lesbian, says that as a young stripper she gave Kinder private dances, and he would grabb her by the shoulders and aggressively try to force her head into his lap. "He'd pull me down to his groin -- really, really hard, to the point that it hurt me," she says. Alarmed, she told him not to return. "I was willing to give up the money he gave me," she says simply. Still, just last year Kinder offered Chapman "you can come live with me." "He told me it was a big place, with a couple of bedrooms, and I could have my own -- unless I wanted to come snuggle up with him," Chapman says. "It was like going straight back to the past when he'd offer to have me come to events in Cape Girardeau all the time. I declined, declined and declined -- every offer he gave me. I only danced with him because he gave me money."
Kinder's chivalry shines through, as does the truth of Akin's much-reviled comment about women not being able to get pregnant when raped. For Chapman describes a rape which almost certainly could not have resulted in pregnancy.
This is documented in an August 9, 2011, Riverfront Times article entitled “Penthouse Pet Dishes on Peter Kinder: ‘He Was One of My Best Customers’.”
