Penthouse Pet Dishes on Peter Kinder: "He Was One of My Best Customers"
Chapman alleges that while she gave the state senator private dances, he would grab 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 by his conduct and the letters he was writing, she told him not to come in any more. "I was willing to give up the money he gave me," she says simply.
Even then, he'd visit. "He would show up and sit there and just ogle me," Chapman recalls.
Eventually, says Chapman, Kinder gave up. She saw him four years ago at an NRA convention: Their eyes locked, and Chapman confided to a companion that this was the creepy guy she'd told him about. But the two never spoke.
That is, until earlier this year, when Kinder showed up while she was tending bar at Verlin's, a south-city watering hole famous for its "Pantsless Parties," during which bartenders sling drinks while clad only in their underwear. Kinder walked in during the day, and she was fully clothed, Chapman recalls. (She has since left Verlin's.)
Peter Kinder and Tammy Chapman: She says the photo was taken earlier this year, when the lieutenant governor walked into the south-city bar where she was working.
Trying to do her job, Chapman asked the 56-year-old Kinder, who was now lieutenant governor and a rising Tea Party star, whether he remembered her. He said he did. They got to chatting, and when she mentioned she was looking to find a new apartment, he pounced.
"I just got a nice place in Brentwood," he said. "You can come live with me."
