The Associated Press is backing its reporter. "Our reporter spoke to him at length," media director Paul Colford told The Guardian. "She asked him about that statement twice. After the story appeared, Mr Moore told associates he was making a joke. Our staffer did not report that the bill would go so far as to outlaw yoga pants. Or that he intended to, we stand by our coverage."
The Guardian reports that Moore's indecent exposure bill was inspired by a naked bike ride through Missoula last summer.
In the interest of avoiding government overreach, maybe just make naked bicycle rides illegal? Just a thought.
