Ciara Matthews: Former Hooters Girl Now Gov. Scott Walker’s Campaign Spokeswoman

From titillating male customers at Hooters to being staunchly anti-abortion and now acting as Governor Walker’s campaign  spokesperson–well–there seems no end to the resume twists and turns of Ciara Matthews.  Can working at FAUX News be far away for this blonde?

The Capital Times has a great story about this  amusing Republican.

People are starting to pay attention to Ciara Matthews, Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign spokeswoman. She’s a hard-core Republican, has worked on high-profile GOP campaigns, and is a strident foe of abortion.

And now the news is spreading through the Internet that she’s a former Hooters girl, along with a picture that displays a side of her you aren’t likely to see during the campaign.

Asked if Walker was aware of the part of her resume that included Hooters when he hired her last year, she says, “I don’t know.”

Matthews is seen as a rising Republican operative. She has served as communications director for the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that works to elect anti-abortion-rights women to office, as communications director for the Nevada Republican Party and also worked for Nevada Right to Life.

The website that posted her photo questions how Matthews can square her work for an organization that clearly markets sexuality with her longtime war on Planned Parenthood and, well, all those traditional Republican values.

If you are wondering what else this Republican ‘star’ has done with her life–would you find it hard to believe–in light of everything else—there is a Sharron Angle connection.

Matthews previously served as deputy communications director for Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle in 2010, during which Angle snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by blowing a huge lead over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

So why should anyone care about Ciara Matthews? makes it clear in short fashion.

In a hypocritical turn, Matthews seems totally fine with selling chaste sexiness but not permitting sexuality — she used to be a waitress at Hooters. Now, short of cooking meth or murdering enemies of the mob, doing what you have to do to work your way through college is generally admirable, and Matthews shouldn’t be faulted for donning the shiny suntan nylons and orange short shorts of the Hooters uniform. As they say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it. But profitting from selling a plasticized form of unnatural sexiness designed to arouse men while simultaneously believing that women should be forced to face the “consequences” of actually giving into to their sexual desires is a pretty backward way of thinking. And she should be taken to task for it. So we’ve posted this hilarious picture of her in her Hooters uniform to illustrate the ridiculousness of all of this — Walker, Matthews, their wacky beliefs, and the general asshats who we’ve somehow elevated to positions like Governor of an entire goddamn state. Vote, people! This is what happens when you don’t!

    I probably would not like this young woman if I met her, but am I suppposed to like what the WI male “lefty” bloggers are doing to her on their blogs? It’s all pretty weird. By and large the lefty bloggers themselves are revolting-looking. Can I post photos of them and ridicule them based on physical qualitites? It wouldn’t be hard to do. How about bloggers being mocked and ridiculed publically for their sexual behavior? Is that okay? You’ve putt his woman’s “sexual” behavior and self-expression up for discussion…I’m confused here.

    LIke if someone thought that a gay blogger was “dangerous” as a supporter of Kathleen Falk, and wrote a post about how he does XWZ and he refelcts on Falk, so don’t vote for her. Should I go after that guy, post pix of him and try to humilate him? And shame Falk Thruough association with him?
    Is this woman running for office herself? That she is up for more scrutiny than other political operatives like say Nathan Franklin or Jud Loundsbury? can I examine their behavior and post it in relation to Tom Barrett? How about those bike shorts that James Rowen wears? They seem a bit homoerotic, he’s pretty cose with Barrett and Norquist…If she is running for office and so is subject to absurd levels of scrutiny, I missed that. If she’s just a staffer, I have to wonder what the F. is wrong with you people and are all staffers and party members and bloggers and volunteers now open for public shaming? or just a few? If a few, who decides WHICH few? The sexy ones with low tops and spread legs? Do we skip the fat aging ones with varicose veins?
    What DO we do with the gay ones? how about any with suspected substance problems or perhaps marital issues, can we mock anyone who works for Scott Walker for ANYTHING?
    God I hope so, I could do a lot with this new paradigm. I can kick-ass in Photoshop too, can I post ‘shopped pix of varioius people in bed? that would be awesome right?

    Sorry but I fail to see how this behavior is more elevated than anything this woman has done. Plenty of trashy behavior to go around from where I’m sitting.
    (and HOW I’m sitting and what I’m wearing and how big my hooters are is left up to the imagination. I’m sure it all has a lot of bearing on the validity of my remarks.)
    I kind of thought you would handle yourself differntly. but I was wrong. And btw I do not feel that gay bloggers should be harassed, I just do not see how you’re able to miss the race to the (sexy satin-covered) bottom here.
    and I have to LOL, Fox is always pimping blondes for cheap thrills, right I know that. But YOU GUYS ARE NOT?
    LOL you so are.
    What if SCott Walker hired her just to see how badly Liberals males would handle it. Maybe have a few chuckles over the behavior of “dirty Libs”.

    I forgot to mention the Jezebel website is owned by a man, and the so-caled “liberated’ women published there crank out very sensational stories sometimes about their own sex lives in order to generate the most hits possible. The rate of pay they receive for doing so is determined by the man. I understand that when the bonus pay system he had in place actually caused the women to qualify for the bonuses (He thought they couldn’t make it?) he discontinued the bonus pay there after. Pretty liberated stuff.

  3. pete and your real problem is you can’t have her. and she is more then happy to serve the crooks who run this state. it’s not a matter of what she did it’s a matter of this is just another one of walkers long list of undesirables to help him out HE HAS HIRED MANY OF THEM. ASK THE F.B.I and this also shows what a hippocrit she is. i will tease your as# but don’t come near me or i will have you arrrested. maybe now she can even shoot you with the new law Walker gave her. I FELT THREATENED.

  4. Really Libs??? This the best you can come up with? Young girl works at Hooters to make her way through college, works her way up the chain and now works for one of the most courage Governors in the country. If this young lady was a liberal, you would praise her as a woman who elevated herself from waitress to governors aid. Wow! What a bunch of hippicrates! Is this really the best you can come up with??? Sad!!!!

    Only libs would find it a contradiction for a woman to display her sexuality AND maintain personal responsiblity for her actions.

  6. technologist

    Is this what passes for substance? The inability to deflect from the positive reform results that Walker and the Republican majority have executed is risible.

    Nicely done!

    This is manufactured hypocrisy. you are arguing that women cannot stand against the morally and ethically problematic institution of terminating unborn children while simultaneously displaying their attractiveness.
