A stripper in Oklahoma has filed for a protective order against a Texas Republican state senator who has likened what he called America’s “spiritual battle” to the Holocaust.
The clerk in Creek County, Oklahoma, confirmed on Tuesday that a request for an order had been issued against Sen. Charles Perry (R) of Lubbock, Texas. but the document itself couldn’t be released since it hadn’t yet been served yet.
The Associated Press reports:
But the woman seeking the protective order posted a photo of it on Twitter, where she describes herself as dancer at a gentleman’s club.
Perry’s office in Austin didn’t return messages. His Tulsa-based attorney wouldn’t comment.
While being sworn in to the Senate in September, Perry alluded to the Holocaust while suggesting the U.S. government perpetuates “laws that lead citizens away from God.”
The woman, Cynthia Lynn Ortiz, filed a handwritten request for the protective order in Creek County, Oklahoma, where she claims she moved after Perry began stalking her in 2010. Ortiz says she met the lawmaker at a Lubbock, Texas Republican Women’s event in 2009, but later relocated to Denton, Texas, and then to Oklahoma, when he would not leave her alone. According to the protective order request — of which Ortiz posted a photo on Twitter — Perry recruited acquaintances to help him keep tabs on the woman.
“I could not go outside without one coming to watch especially if I was on the phone,” Ortiz’s request states. “A man in a brown truck would follow me everywhere I went.”
Ortiz also claims the lawmaker hacked her computer, interfered with her relationships and her work, vandalized her car and installed surveillance cameras in her home, according to the Oklahoman. Perry’s office has denied each of her claims and taken to attacking Ortiz’s character, in addition to requesting that a judge dismiss the protective order.
“She simply needs real help and treatment,” a Perry spokesperson said of Ortiz, calling her claims “completely false.”
While Perry was sworn in to the Senate last September, he alluded to the Holocaust while suggesting the U.S. government perpetuates “laws that lead citizens away from God.”
