Peter Kinder Responds to Allegations: "This Woman's Bizarre Story Is Not True"

Kinder and Chapman: The photo that started it all.
This morning we wrote how Peter Kinder has remained mum since Tuesday when Riverfront Times first revealed a former stripper's startling allegations against Missouri's lieutenant governor.

Tammy Chapman accuses Kinder of being one of her best customers when she worked as a dancer at Diamond Cabaret in Sauget in the mid-1990s. But once Kinder became rough with her during private dances, Chapman refused to perform for him.

This year Chapman again ran into Kinder when he visited Verlin's, a bar in the Grove Neighborhood where she and other waitresses sling drinks in their underwear. Chapman says Kinder asked her to move in with him.

Today Kinder issued a statement quickly denying Chapman's claims, and then suggested that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is to blame for "false stories" about his past.
Like most people I am not proud of every place I have been but this woman's bizarre story is not true. The Democrats have tried to use these tactics against me in the past and they have failed. Jay Nixon may want to make up false stories about the past, but I, like most Missourians, remain focused on the issues that are important to Missourians like jobs and education. Under Jay Nixon's leadership, Missouri ranked third-worst in terms of jobs losses in 2010 and nearly 50,000 fewer Missourians are employed now than when Jay Nixon took office. Today, Missouri's unemployment is 8.8%, we are being out-performed by all but three of the states that border Missouri and more than 269,000 Missourians cannot find work. Our schools are failing, our families are hurting and I will remain focused on talking about the issues that will move Missouri forward.
But as RFT's Sarah Fenske, who broke the story, explained earlier today, Kinder is wrong to think this is some grand conspiracy.
[T]he whole sordid tale began unfolding last Thursday, when we jokingly published a photo of Kinder "pressing the flesh" at a St. Louis bar. We (honestly!) had no idea that the bar, Verlin's, was known for its "pantsless parties," in which bartenders sling drinks in their panties. Or that he was posing with a former "Penthouse pet of the month" -- or that the "pet," now a 39-year-old, openly gay bartender, would be interested in sharing her story when we tracked her down. We just thought the picture was moderately amusing," explains Fenske. "Really, the only reason any of this came to light is because RFT readers are such barflies, they almost immediately recognized the bar -- and the bartender. The GOP may want to claim this was an organized effort, but it looks a whole lot more like that new-fangled "crowd sourcing" thing to us.
In other news, Kinder's response finally opened the door for the Post-Dispatch to report on the story with a brief article this afternoon on stltoday.com. And shock of all shocks, the article even mentions how the Riverfront Times first broke the story. We can just imagine the Post-Dispatch editors holding their noses as they let the name of St. Louis' alternative weekly appear in their pristine pages.

Now 39? When was that picture taken? She looks about 50 in it. Either way, who cares if he went to a strip club, it's not illegal.

What do you mean tragedy! It was just a birthday present for planet apes president !!! That's all ! Feels great to flip hamburgers and hip hop atop of good news...makes you feel vibrant and energized !!!

ARIZONA = UTOYA = GOVERNMENT‘S "AFTERLIFE" CASH & $$ FLASH MOB (there was no shooting in Utoya or Arizona, but tear gas and theater instead on faces of multiculturalism maniacs..your guilt or blame and shame weapon against us and our families in our own countries atop of forceful unemployment during so called "ECONOMIC CRISES" during which third world foreigners are allowed to rape, kill, and still is nothing else but fast way to early retirements for government related criminals/ terrorists...$$$ extra bonuses, and newly issued state identities while calling you a terrorists) !!! http://stateofterror.blogspot.... or http://stateofterror.wordpress...

OBAMA = STALIN = BUSH or USA = SOVIET UNION http://avsecbostjan.blogspot.c... or http://avsecbostjan.wordpress.... Whitie is fighting war on terrorism just to come home and be pronounced as terrorist...turned in Timothy, jobless, homeless ...YESSS, WE CAN...YESSS,  WE CAN...GABBY OPENED HER EYES (Obaminator’s psychotic speech in Tucson = failed “Apocalypse Now“)

WAKE-UP !!! WAKE UP PEOPLE BEFORE IT GETS ALL TO LATE ON PLANET  APES !!! TEARS WON'T DO YOU ANY GOOD !!! AS BUSH STATED "THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE PAID FOR"(to die ) !!

EVEN IF IRAQ WOULD  HAVE BEEN WAR FOR OIL ONLY,  VETERANS WOULDN'T NEVER EVER HAVE TO BE HOMELESS PEOPLE THE WAY THEY ARE AND NOR WOULD OUR PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE ALLOVER THE PLACE THE WAY THEY DO TO VERY TODAY(never ending “war on terror” story). BECAUSE EVEN IF WAR WAS FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY, MONEY SHOULD BE USED  FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS AND NOT WHAT THE CASE IS OR AGAINST WHITES(to destroy us allover the world) !!! You don't really proof for 911, just put  your sht together in your heads...THIS IS PLENTY ENOUGH TO HAVE O(B)SAMA  INDICTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE AMERICAN HUMANITY TOGETHER WITH HIS ZIONIST MASTERS) !!!

Don't worry O(s)bama, you have just saved USA what is lots of Dollars in  your DEBT DEALS as those best of America or Navy Seals would  also grew older and then you already know how it goes...DEAD & ILL = DEBT DEAL !!!

HOW MUCH FURTHER ARE WE WILLING TO GO IN ORDER TO PLEASE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO DENY US EVEN THE RIGHT TO EXISTENCE(what is to you country without laws or lawless country in respect to your personal rights, but the one that in contrast to your denied basic human rights recognizes you extremely liable when payments are due) !!?

IS IT INDEPENDENCE THAT WE CELEBRATE OR DEPENDENCE (what are your credit card bills or alimony saying about it) !!? HOW IS YOUR DIABETES AND LOST MARRIAGES !!? FORECLOSURES AND  JOB SEARCH !!? THAT IS THE QUESTION TO BE OR NOT TO BE !!! IS IT LAND OF THE FREE OR STATE OF TERROR AGAINST OWN  POPULATION !!? IT IS TIME TO LET THEM KNOW WHAT COLOR ARE THE STRIPES ON OUR STAR SPANGLED BANNER !!! TIME TO DETERMINE WHOSE INDEPENDENCE/AMERICA, WE CELEBRATE TODAY(who wants to erase us and denies us the right to exist) !!! IT IS  IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHOM WE ADDRESS WITH "PRESIDENT" (STOP HUMILIATING YOURSELF) !!!

VOTING POLL:

DO WE NEED MORE PROOFS TO INDICT OBAMA AND BUSH ADMINISTRATION FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY !!?

1)NO, THEY ARE CLEARLY GUILTY AS OIL WAR NEVER EVER WAS REAL ISSUE IN GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITES. REAL ISSUE  ARE FACTS OR WHAT WE WITNESS TODAY WHEN VETERANS  ARE HOMELESS, JOBLESS, KILLED, ETC.

2)NO, AS 911 ALONE AS WELL AS ACTIONS IMPOSED AGAINST  WHITES IN USA (as well worldwide) ARE CLEARLY INDICATING ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY

3)YESS AS JUST YESTERDAY(for over 15 years to very yesterday), WE (news/media = vacuum world of lies) WERE TELLING YOU THAT UNEMPLOYMENT WAS AT 10% WHILE TODAY ONE IS AT 50% (HOW COME NO ONE QUESTION JOURNALISM LIKE THIS OR  WHAT IS WORLD OF LIES AND DEMENTIA)!

4)I AGREE WITH FIRST TWO ANSWERS ABOVE.  IT IS TIME TO PRESS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST BOTH ADMINISTRATIONS DUE TO ACTS OF GENOCIDE AGAINST WHITE HUMANITY FOR THE SAKE(SAFETY) OF US AND OUR CHILDREN(DO NOT TURN THEM IN WHITE REFUGEES ON PLANET APES OR WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE WHEN VISITING ABOVE PAGES) !!!

So now we know how Sarah broke the story. She was running around pantless at Verlins and jealous that Kinder didn't give her the time of day.

Kinder was just doing his part to make sure all the strippers and bar tenders stayed employed.

Maybe he was doing research in all those bars and strip clubs over the years so he could run as a 'saved by Jesus' reborn Christian in the upcoming election.

Yeah, research, that's the ticket!

Leave it to a repub to try to turn a scandal into an attack on his opponent.  Usually means he is guilty as sin.Then again, hanging out with a stripper is pretty low on the repub outrage meter.

Like most people I am not proud of every place I have been but this woman's bizarre story is not true. (An admission of something here.)

The Democrats have tried to use these tactics against me in the past and they have failed. (Redirecting blame.)

Jay Nixon may want to make up false stories about the past, but I, like most Missourians, remain focused on the issues that are important to Missourians like jobs and education. (Wow, bash your archrival by the 3rd sentence. Classy. The money he blew on hotels, meals, tips, etc. that he could paid for out of pocket (like some of our other officials)? Could've paid someone's salary. You're goddamn right jobs are important.)

Under Jay Nixon's leadership, Missouri ranked third-worst in terms of jobs losses in 2010 and nearly 50,000 fewer Missourians are employed now than when Jay Nixon took office. Today, Missouri's unemployment is 8.8%, we are being out-performed by all but three of the states that border Missouri and more than 269,000 Missourians cannot find work. Our schools are failing, our families are hurting and I will remain focused on talking about the issues that will move Missouri forward. (A lot of blaming stastistics. MO's 8.8% unemployment rate is a shade under the national average of 9.2%. He's been in office long enough to provide some SOLUTIONS to these problems nd not just talking about them.)

This statement is boiled shit cooked up by Kinder and his mouthpiece. Here, taste it!

What other people said: fuck this abusive Hefner wannabe. Just more of the GOP "Do as I say, not as I do."

As usual, the enablers of the family values Republican sleazeballs miss the point either willfully or through stupidity.  No one cares if he went to strip clubs.  And one can question the allegations of the ex-dancer that he was a creepy and aggressive stalker.  But for this clown to blame Nixon for his own poor judgment and then pretend that he and his cronies are working to bring jobs to Missouri is just laughable.  The only jobs this dirtbag has helped create (at least on this side of the river) are in the luxury hotels and restaurants he frequents on the taxpayer's dime.

My problem with this isn't that he goes to the clubs... you're human... my problem is that he "invited" this woman to live with him in a place that WE THE PEOPLE OF MISSOURI pay for...

No... not cool.

Every penny counts eh...

Peter Kinder is a worthless woman-abusing piece of shit who wastes taxpayer money so he can stay in lavish hotels for months.  

Sure, there's nothing wrong with going to a strip club once in a while  But let's face it, this piece of shit was practically LIVING at the strip club.  Of course I'm sure he's the first one to talk about how much he loves Jesus and family values.  What a fucking HYPOCRITE.

Fuck you Peter Kinder, you and that other piece of shit Ed Martin should just tongue each other's assholes until you both fucking drop dead of syphilis

"Like most people I am not proud of every place I have been ..." Um, so you're sorry about all the hotels AND the strip clubs. Got it. And while the state faces so many problems you remain focused on "talking about issues" rather than actually doing anything about them...?

On KMOX Chapman trashed Kinder for no apparent reason. He wasn't bothering her or making statements about her. Pretty unusual way for a dancer and bartender to treat a patron.

The River Front Times is a liberal rag!!!!!!!!   There reporting is biased and never say anything good about a consertive.   This is another example of how they distort the truth.

Who cares if the guy went to a strip club 20 years ago.  I would be worried about any politician who claims otherwise....   Why do we (the public) obsess about this nonsense when there are real issues and real problems facing our state (anyone notice the local economy lately?!?!?) but all we can do is fall into the tabloid-trap...  Wake up people!  This is MEANINGLESS.

Verlins Moved Out of Soulard and went to the Grove right after Mardi Gras.  He opened Verlins2 likely with some of the money he owes people here in the neighborhood.

to update your post, now Kinder admits the story is true but is saying the devil made me do it.

Rebecca forgot to tell us that she was a stripper at the club when Kinder was there. She is a scorned bitch who hates Kinder because he didn't stuff any tens and twentys in her cum stained g-string.

I agree - if he happens to be the best man for the job, I couldn't care less if he went to strip clubs or shoved spoons up his ass while wearing a dress and reading Harry Potter book out loud in a feminine voice.

He went from "I have no idea what this crazy person is talking about" to "I went to those places but I found Jesus" and "If there was a crime, she should've filed charges." Throw in how much he spent on hotel rooms, meals and events on the taxpayers' dime compared to other politicians ("but it's okay, I finally rented a condo with my own money") and people think that THIS guy is the best man for the job based on his fiscal responsibility and family values?

Huh. If you substitute a rolling pin, there is a 98.7% chance Kinder has actually read a Harry Potter book that way.
