Family Association Head Urges Complaints Against ‘Las Vegas’

Feb 9, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Donald Wildmon, head of the Tupelo, Miss.-based American Family Association, is urging association members to file complaints at the Federal Communications Commission alleging that a Feb. 6 episode of NBC’s “Las Vegas” included a scene inside a strip club that violated the agency’s indecency prohibitions. In an e-mail to AFA members Thursday, Mr. Wildmon included a video of the allegedly offensive material-which shows partially exposed female buttocks and suggestive dancing. “After watching the video, please follow the instructions to file your official complaint with the FCC,” Mr. Wildmon said. “Do it for your children and grandchildren.” The text of the suggested e-mail complaint also raises objections to a scene of a simulated lap dance. A spokeswoman for NBC Universal had not returned telephone calls by late Thursday afternoon.
