Just don’t put him in charge of ‘Show & Tell’
Strip club owner runs for school board

Mehlville, Feb. 28 (UPI) — A Missouri school board candidate says voters should focus on his fatherhood -- his three kids -- rather than his livelihood -- national strip club boss.

Micheal Ocello of Mehlville, Mo., who used to a be a male stripper, runs a chain of successful adult clubs across the nation, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Now, he wants to help run the schools attended by his children and is one of six people seeking two seats on the Mehlville School Board.

Several potential voters interviewed by the newspaper said Ocello does not have a chance of winning in the conservative St. Louis suburb.

"I don't want to say anything negative about anybody," Tom Diehl, a nonprofit fundraising consultant, told the Post-Dispatch. "I imagine it might be tough for some voters to get beyond that issue."
