Last year Georgia strippers helped get out the vote in a runoff election that sent Warnock to the U.S. Senate. Their pitch: “Get your booty to the polls.”

Nobody can say how much it helped, given that TV election analysts don’t break down the exotic-dancer vote. But Warnock won by only a 2% margin, so any support may have made a difference.
