Christie: Strip Club Won't Hurt 'Family-Friendly Nature' of Atlantic City
Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said the opening of a strip club in Atlantic City will still make the destination a family-friendly one.
As NJ.com has reported, a Scores' strip club will open in the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort next month. Christie has tried to market Atlantic City as a place where whole families can vacation together.
"Listen I don’t think having one Scores in Atlantic City is going to kill the family-friendly nature of some of the other attractions," Christie said on Tuesday. "I assume that most people like me wouldn’t bring their kids to Scores. I think that’s probably a pretty good bet."
According to reports, the "New York strip club will open a $25 million satellite — complete with private VIP rooms, stripper poles and ultra-VIP rooms for celebrities and high-rollers — in the casino," although New Jersey laws that govern casinos "prohibit total nudity."
Christie said, "As long as they comply with the laws they’re allowed to conduct business however they see fit."
