Walker Communications Director Claims Only Job a 'Hooters Girl' Does is "Wait Tables"

“So you guys want to write a that I waited tables in college--I’m confused as to why that’s a story.” That's what Scott Walker's communication director, Ciara Mathews, said when asked whether she was, in fact, a "Hooters Girl" wayyyyyy back in... 2007.  (Ancient history, I know.)

In fact, that's her, pictured above, "waiting tables" on a customer.

Matthews also would dispute a , covered in the Wall Street Journal, that found a “Hooters Girl” is “the very essence of Hooters’ business,” whose “predominant function is to provide vicarious sexual recreation, to titillate, entice, and arouse male customers’ fantasies.” 

Hmmm... that sounds like more than just waiting tables.

Is Hooters performing abortions?” #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;"> #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">No... silly... Hooters isn't performing abortions!  They just that get pregnant.  As long as you're NOT PREGNANT you have nothing to worry about... wink, wink. #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">The best part, though, is when Elbow asked her if Walker knew she worked at Hooters when he hired her!  Matthews responded, "I don't know."  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">Ah-ha!  We have another scandal! Hootergate!  What did Walker know and when did he know it?!? #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">All joking aside, if you want to work at Hooters, fine.  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">If you want to go to Hooters, fine. #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">  #000000; background-color: ; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;">But, don't call it anything that it is:  A watered-down strip club that serves food.
