New Jersey 101.5 Forms "100 Stripper March"

NEW JERSEY's proposed smoking ban in restaurants and bars has MILLENIUM Talk WKXW/TRENTON-WIXM/MILLVILLE-ATLANTIC CITY (NEW JERSEY 101.5) afternoon "JERSEY GUYS" CRAIG CARTON and RAY ROSSI hopping mad (well, maybe CRAIG a little angrier than RAY). CRAIG and RAY are assembling a "100 Stripper March" with over 100 strippers and "exotic dancers" joining the hosts and representatives of bars and restaurants across the state in marching on the STATE HOUSE in TRENTON next THURSDAY (1/12) to protest the pending law.
The hosts have called the state's exemption of ATLANTIC CITY casinos from the ban hypocritical; "once again," CARTON said in a statement, "the politicians of NEW JERSEY prove that they are out of touch with the common man and the small business owner." NEW JERSEY 101.5 has been involved in several major statewide protests over the years, most notably campaigns to unseat then-Gov. JIM FLORIO over a tax increase.
