LUBBOCK (AP) — An apparent stripper in Oklahoma has filed for a protective order against a Texas Republican state senator who likened what he called America’s “spiritual battle” to the Holocaust.

The clerk in Creek County, Oklahoma, confirmed Tuesday that a request for an order had been issued against Sen. Charles Perry of Lubbock, Texas.

The clerk said the document couldn’t be released since it hadn’t yet been served.

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.”
