You could assume that, but only by overlooking Bartle's obsession with sex. He's sponsoring Senate Bill 300, a shut-the-sex-shops piece of legislation that would, among other things, limit the hours that sexually explicit stores can operate.
As The Maneater reports:
“It does not help the image of the state of Missouri when you see billboards lining the roads or tin sheds with “Triple X” painted on them,” Bartle’s Chief of Staff Todd Scott said. “We would like to invite tourists here. We have made a lot of efforts to promote Missouri as a family-friendly state. These signs and businesses just give a rather seedy look to the state.”
“Twelve hours a day is enough for a business,” Scott said. “It’s not an infringement on their rights if you give them five or six days with over 40 hours a week to be open.”
Bartle is also pushing to banish billboards for sexually oriented businesses. In Bartle's perfect world, "family friendly" means no sex. Someone get this guy a biology book, stat.
