Iowa Gubernatorial Candidate Bob Vander Plaats weighs in on Wednesday’s refusal by the Iowa Court of Appeals to review a 2008 decision in regards to Iowa’s public indecent exposure law that basically makes it legal for minors to perform nude if it considered “art.”

Vander Plaats said:

"This ruling violates the ‘reasonable person’  and  ‘common sense’ applications to the intent of the law. It is, quite simply, a clear abuse of the intent of the law and demeans an underage girl. As a parent and as a citizen, I find this ruling appalling at best. This ruling, if allowed to stand, has serious long-term consequences for minors who are put in this situation and negative consequences for our communities and state."

We need to tell Iowa’s legislators to close the loophole!
