David Moore, Asshole of the Day for February 16, 2015
Montana Rep. David Moore was the victim of a crime last year, and that crime was seeing a few naked bicyclists. True story.
But a member of the legislature doesn’t have to take this sitting down, he can do something, and so he has:
Moore, who is upset that group of naked bicyclists pedaled through Missoula last year, decided that what his state really needs right now is tighter regulations on trousers. His proposed bill, HB 365, would outlaw not just nudity, but also “any device, costume, or covering that gives the appearance of or simulates the genitals, pubic hair, anus region, or pubic hair region.” Per the Billings Gazette:
The Republican from Missoula said tight-fitting beige clothing could be considered indecent exposure under his proposal.
“Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway,” Moore said after the hearing.
That’s right– yoga pants. Of all the problems in America today, yoga pants is where Rep. Moore decides he has had enough.
Thankfully his fellow legislature don’t share his passion on this issue, and so it’s been tabled. But Asshole of the Day isn’t an award about results, it’s about intentions and statements, and I think we can all agree, Rep. Moore is the Asshole of the Day.
It is David Moore’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
