An exotic dancer at Sensations Premier Gentlemen’s Club in Inola filed a protective order in Creek County against a Texas state senator who she claimed is stalking her.

Cynthia Ortiz (on Twitter as @TipAStripper) asked for a protective order from Texas Sen. Charles Lee Perry on May 6. Ortiz said they met in 2009 at a Lubbock Area Republican Women’s luncheon and he began stalking her in 2010.

She said she left Lubbock to get away from Perry and he continued to stalk her when she moved to Denton, Texas, and then Oklahoma.

“Since taking office, my family has dealt with a slew of false, malicious allegations by a single individual,” said a statement on Perry’s Facebook page. “The outlandish claims have ranged from stating that I have placed cameras in her house to hacking her computer.”

Ortiz claims that she knows other women whom Perry has stalked. She also alleged that he’s trying to intimidate her and smear her reputation by implying that she’s mentally unstable in order to discourage others from coming forward. She said her only goal is the safety of her family and herself.

“I appreciate the fact that Charles’ camp will think that me making this statement is crazy, being that is their allegation. However, this is the way this is going to be handled by my side,” she said in a statement posted on Twitter. “I do not believe asking him to follow proper court procedure or asking him to leave me alone is in any way indicative of a mentally ill person.”

Perry previously made news during his 2014 Senate swearing-in ceremony, during which he said the U.S. government “continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God,” comparing it to the Holocaust.

Perhaps Oklahoma has enough crazy already.
