Dana Nessel, the Democrat whose campaign ad asked, “Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting?” has skeletons rattling around in her closet.

It seems the woman running for Michigan attorney general once defended a Detroit strip club that illegally employed a 15-year-old girl as a dancer.

Nessel, who views herself as the anti-sexual harassment candidate, defended Club Onyx despite evidence they had exploited a child by hiring her to perform for their audience. Nessel, rather than have club owners charged, suggested police give “lectures” to the staff about how to run a 21-and-up strip club.

“We requested members of the police department to come in and give lectures (to club staff),” Nessel said. “It’s a legitimate business, and they are trying to work within the balance of the law. They don’t want to cause havoc in the community.”

The girl had been arrested months earlier for performing at another club. The legal age to perform at that time in Michigan was 18.

“I will not sexually harass my staff and I won’t tolerate it in your workplace either,” Nessel says in her new ad. “I won’t walk around in a half-open bathrobe, and I’ll continue to take all sex crimes seriously, just like I did as a prosecutor.”

You can’t make this stuff up.
