Christian-Conservative Nebraska Politician Took Donations from Adult Store Owner

As long as you moan, "oh, god," it's all good

LINCOLN – Bill Kintner, a conservative Christian senator from Papillion, accepted $1,349 in campaign donations last year from "Dr. John" Haltom, owner of a chain of adult novelty stores and a convicted criminal, campaign finance reports show.

Kintner said he met Haltom while campaigning door-to-door last year in Ashland, and Haltom offered to donate signs because he has a "sign-making operation."

Kintner said he wasn't aware at the time of Haltom's profession, but added, "I don't think he owns Doctor John's anymore."
