The great state of Kansas is $200 million in the hole, but not to worry. A creative maneuver aims to fill that hole and a few more by auctioning off some sex toys from a seized business.
Governor Sam Brownbeck is facing both pressure and ridicule after his tax cuts landed the state in some major debt, leading the administration to start selling assets seized from various businesses who failed to pay taxes. Pretty normal, right? Um, almost! As the Kansas City Star reports, it looks like one of those businesses was an adult store, so there are some pretty sexy items up for sale at the moment:
"The online site lists about 400 lots — individual lots contain can dozens of items — that include the Pipedream Fantasy Love Swing, books, hundreds of DVDs, sex and drinking games, a wide assortment of sexually oriented equipment, the carrying cases for devices, the Glass Pleasure Wand, bundles of lingerie and the Cyberskin Foot Stroker."
I guess you could call Kansas a swing state. Because I was curious if the Foot Stroker was a foot-shaped stroker or some device that strokes your foot, I looked it up. It's a foot-shaped sex toy. Nice.
Unsurprisingly, Democrats have been taking some pretty gleeful potshots—this shit is just too easy:
"Brownback is so desperate to fill the massive hole in the state budget caused by his reckless income tax cuts that the state of Kansas is now in the porn business," said Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley. "This is the same governor whose supporters spent this past week attacking his opponent for a strip club incident that happened 16 years ago."
(The strip club incident in question? Kansas gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis, Brownback's opponent went to a strip club one time when he was 26. That's it.)
Anyway, great job, Kansas. Glad to see you're taking this one head on. OR SHOULD I SAY DILDO ON?
