VA Introduces Anti-Underpants Bill
I see London, I see France, but you better not let me see your underpants....
That's the message Virginia legislators are sending out by endorsing a bill to ban low-riding pants.
Delegates approved a measure that would allow police to assess a $50 fine on anyone who exposes their below-waist underpants in a "lewd or indecent manner."
[Freshman Norfolk Delegate Algie Howell Jr.] said that since he introduced it last month, he's been deluged with calls and e-mails about the issue, mostly positive. Howell told The Virginian-Pilot that he kept hearing from customers in his barber shop that something needed to be done about young people who wear their pants around their knees, exposing their underwear.
Update: The bill is dead.
