Sarah Palin Wannabes Expose Themselves

5/13/2010 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin was a featured speaker at the Rosemont Theater in Chi-town last night -- but the real tea party was blocks away, at a Palin-alike stripping competition!


It all went down at Chicago's Admiral Theatre -- where a 21-year-old Palin doppelganger named "Bia" (above) won $2,500 after proving she has nothing to hide on some very hot button issues.

According to the organizers, a portion of the the proceeds went to a "legitimate tea party organization," and while Sarah was invited to judge ... we're told she never got back to them on the offer.

Wonder why?

As much as I dislike Palin and her policies, to my knowledge there has never been a look-a-like stripper competition for a male politician. It is not okay to objectify and degrade her for being an attractive woman. This type of competition is sexist and shouldn't be tolerated. You should know better than to promote this as something humorous, TMZ.

What is the point of having a lawyer at the helm from People's Court when TMZ uses photoshopped pics without attribution in their TV program, Thurs., May 13, 2010? While some may lament celebrity news is not journalism, I at least thought beyond the glossy hype TMZ went for accuracy. Shame.
