A Phoenix strip club has endorsed a Democratic pastor for Congress. And the candidate, Rev. Jarrett Maupin, says he welcomes the The Great Alaskan Bush Company’s support.
“The Lord works in mysterious ways,” said Maupin, who calls himself a member of the Progressive Christian Coalition.
The strip club recently touted the endorsement on its Grand Avenue sign: “Jarrett Maupin for Congress ‘The Rev.'”
Maupin said he heard from the owner that employees voted to back the pastor because he supports affordable student loans, all-day kindergarten and raising the minimum wage.
