Texas Ban on Sexy Cheerleading Fails

Last week, I informed readers of the Texas House of Representative's move to ban "sexy cheerleading." It appears that the bill has stalled in the Senate and will not be heard this year.

Apparently, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders influenced at least one Senator's decision:

"My wife loved that bill," said state Sen. Kim Brimer, R-Fort Worth.

Brimer said his wife "lobbied me hard" to support it, then he reminded her that seductive cheering is not always a bad thing.

"I told her we had the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders coming to Arlington. I'm not going to offend the Cowboys in any way," he said, referring to the team's decision to build a multimillion-dollar stadium in the city.

So, for at least one more year, the epidemic of sexy cheerleading in Texas will continue unabated.
