Texas Lawmaker Wants Strippers To Wear Licenses Displaying Their Real Names
Texas state Rep. Bill Zedler ® has earned a reputation as a fringe extremist even in the conservative state legislature. But Zedler has outdone himself with his latest bill, which would regulate “sexually oriented” businesses, in part by requiring strippers to obtain and wear a license to work.

Licensing requirements for strip clubs and performers exist in many cities and in the state of Alabama. Usually, these laws require a background check and registration with the Labor Department. However, Zedler’s bill goes further, mandating that exotic dancers would need to “conspicuously display” the license while working. They could only obtain the license after completing a training program on human trafficking:
{....}
But the bill states that anyone who receives a license would have to wear it while doing their job — including dancers.

“They could wear it around the neck … or on their shoes … or attached to a head band,” Zedler suggested.

Yes, we must regulate strippers but not guns, because, you know, guns don't kill people, strippers do......

is just a way to flatter your ego." -Barney Frank

Boobs never hurt anyone.
The requirement would be an open invitation to stalkers and violent nuts. That Zedler guy must be a real ass.
