Casey Anthony Strip Club Offer Sparks Controversy in Florida

Casey Anthony's strip club offer has the town of Port St. Lucie divided.

A strip club in Port St. Lucie, Florida, offered Anthony an unusual chance: to become a stripper. Some don't approve of the mother's presence, however.

Doug Delvin, the owner of strip club "Body Talk," had, like many people, heard of the infamous mother's trial, acquittal, and her subsequent move to Port St. Lucie from nearby Orlando. Delvin also had heard of Anthony's employment struggles; because of a lack of education or skills, she has been unable to find a job.

Sunday, he put up a sign at his establishment, reading, "Hey Casey We Are Hiring."

Some residents of the 150,000-person town were critical of Delvin's sign.

"I started hearing the gossip around town and I'm like, who really? I wanted to welcome her to our city, as a bit of a joke," Delvin told CBS 12.

After being questioned about the sign further, though, the strip club manager admitted that he might actually hire Anthony were she to apply for the position.

"If she wanted to come in and apply for a job, I would look at her like everybody else," Delvin told WDBO-AM radio station.

Other Port St. Lucians are skeptical of Anthony's arrival, and just want her gone.

Brian Scheuble, founder of the Port St. Lucie Christian travel agency Go With God, has countered Delvin's offer with one of his own.

Go With God offered the 25-year-old Anthony a free one-way ticket to any airport in the world, as long as the controversial woman does not come back to live in Florida.

"I think if she really wants to convince people that she's a certain way … then she might consider going," Scheuble told The Orlando Sentinel.

In addition, Go With God offered Anthony airfare and hotel accommodations- provided she attend an anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington, D.C. later in January.

Scheuble doubted the highly vilified woman would take his or any other offers, according to The Sentinel.

Anthony was accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony, but was acquitted due to a lack of evidence. Media scrutiny contributed in the trial becoming a national sensation.

Public sentiment continues to be negative for Anthony, including Port St. Lucians.

"People are not happy she's here," said Scheuble.
