GREENVILLE – Following requests from State Representative Bryan Slaton and concerned Texans, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced his office was investigating Mister Misster, a bar in Dallas which hosted an event titled “Drag the Kids to Pride” earlier this summer.
At the event, children were subjected to inappropriate displays by scantily clad men and encouraged to put money in their underwear – activities that appear to run afoul of Chapter 102 of the Texas Business Code. Comptroller Hegar has announced that his office has begun the investigation.
In light of this news, State Representative Bryan Slaton gave the following statement:
“I would like to thank Comptroller Hegar for demonstrating strong leadership on this important issue. When it comes to protecting children from grotesque content, Texans deserve elected officials who will stand up for our children’s innocence. Any business that allows kids to attend an event of a sexual nature should be held accountable, and I am proud of Glenn Hegar for taking steps in that direction.”
Representative Slaton continued:
“Texas should not tolerate the sexualization and exploitation of children. I’m encouraged to see conservative leaders like Comptroller Hegar who are willing to defend our kids. Like many Texans, I am eagerly awaiting the results of his investigation. In the meantime, I will continue working toward passing legislation to ensure children are never again subjected to these events.”
