North Miami Councilman Scott Galvin: 'WPBT2 Aligns with Anti-Gay Pastor' to stop strip club

North Miami is debating whether to allow a fully-nude bar to open next door to WPBT-Channel 2 on "Sesame Street," Northeast 20th Avenue near 151st Street.

Channel 2 is partnering with local pastor Jack Hakimian to stop the city from allowing the club. Hakimian has set up a website, www.nostripclub.org, and he and WPBT have distributed leaflets asking residents to "take action" against the club. The matter will be discussed 7 p.m. Tuesday at the North Miami city council meeting.

North Miami Councilman Scott Galvin supports the club, telling NBC 6 that it would help the local economy. See the following video:
