TLP: Can't Blame Hooters For This
The Tennessee legislator who used to be a Hooters girl has had to explain some bad behavior. And it has nothing to do with orange shorts and bulging owl eyes.
Knoxville News Sentinel:
Yes, she carved her initials in her desk on the floor of the state House, state Rep. Julia Hurley, R-Lenoir City, confirmed today.Boo hoo. Last winter, Hurley wrote in the Hooters company magazine about what her time taking wings orders and deflecting leering pervs had meant to her development as a public servant. "I know that without that time in my life I would not be as strong-willed and eager to become successful," she wrote.
“It was like 1 in the morning on the last day of the session,” Hurley said of that late-night session in May. “I wasn’t thinking straight.”
Hurley was responding to a recent report on a Nashville television station about the incident. The station reported several other desks also have marks on them, ranging from initials to a dollar sign.
Hurley, 29, said she doesn’t remember what she used to carve her initials — J.C.H. — on the desk as she and other representatives waited on the state senate to adjourn.
“To ask me details about what happened three months ago, I couldn’t tell you,” the first-term lawmaker said. “I don’t understand why it’s news, and I don’t want to talk about the desk.”
Guess it must be pretty easy to tell which tables Hurley waited on.
