Slo-Mo Conservative Mayor Dares Left-Wingers to Challenge Town’s Thong Ban

(CNN) –If you plan on going to Kure Beach, North Carolina, bring your sunscreen and shades, but please leave your thong behind. The seaside community has adopted a zero tolerance policy on anyone wearing the barely-there bikini by the shore on their part of North Carolina’s Pleasure Island, just south of Wilmington.

“You can do what you want to in your own space,” said Mayor Dean Lambeth, “but for public decency, keep it off the public beach.” Lambeth told CNN he and the town supervisors last week unanimously approved the ordinance banning the skimpy bathing wear. “Everything we do is family oriented. We like the small town atmosphere,” he said.

Section 12-32 of the Code of the Town of Kure Beach, which was adopted on April 22, makes it illegal “for any person being naked or insufficiently clothed … to bathe or swim in the Atlantic Ocean” or any other area within the town’s jurisdiction. Sun-bathing “naked or insufficiently clothed” is also banned. “Thong bathing suits or similar attire are specifically prohibited,” the code says. Anyone wearing a thong on the beach will be fined $25.

Lambeth said reaction to the no-thong policy has been overwhelmingly positive. “I have gotten probably 100 e-mails from all over the U.S. supporting our stance,” he told CNN. “I’m getting calls from New York, California that they are glad somebody is finally taking a stand for public decency.”

Lambeth, who said Kure Beach’s population swells from 2,500 to 11,000 in the summer, described the town as “nice, slow-mo and conservative.” “We’re just a small southern community, and that’s how we’re going to keep it,” he said.

He also suspected the decision on the thongs could end up in court and blamed liberals for that. “You can file a suit — the way this country is leaning so far left, it wouldn’t surprise me,” he said. “They want to challenge it? They want to spend the money? Go for it.” Lambeth said people can wear thongs in their homes and backyards. And with his policy in place, he told CNN he’s content.

“I’m sitting out here looking at the ocean and don’t see a damn thong in sight.”

    The second thong picture makes me a sympathizer for the mayor.

    I do hope you were being facetious. Size-ism is a serious problem that plagues our society.

    I guess I won’t be wearing my thong there…Do they say what is considered a thong, we latinas have different names for our bathing suits depending on the amount of fabric. The smallest ones are called dental floss. ;0)

    Atlantic City, and other east coast beaches of the pre-1960’s, required women to wear a skirt-style bathing suit that was required to land a number of inches above their knees.
