Underwear Police? Virginians May Be Fined For Low-Cut Pants
ExpLing readers may remember 30%'s previous post of muffins and low-riding jeans. It appears now though that a state representative from Virginia stands poised to "crack down on people" who wear low-riding pants. Norfolk Delegate Algie Howell Jr. proposes fines of $50 for people whose undergarments are exposed, saying in a beautiful piece of logic: "That's why they're called undergarments. They're supposed to be worn under something else." Beautiful.
Apparently, the bill was taken up in subcommittee, and the response was "sympathetic yet skeptical because of legal issues."
The bill faces a floor vote soon, and ExpLing readers can count on 30% to keep them posted.
