Hooters to Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy: We’d love to have you!

Hooters, the nationwide restaurant chain that proudly claims to be “delightfully tacky yet unrefined,” is inviting Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy to pay them a visit.

In a web chat with readers of the Syracuse Post-Standard on Thursday, Onondaga County District Attorney Bill Fitzpatrick was asked whether he has any interest in becoming lieutenant governor. On Wednesday, Duffy revealed he wouldn’t be seeking re-election in the fall.

Fitzpatrick gave a — ahem — colorful response.

“Being Lt. Governor in New York is kind of like being a baby changing station in a Hooter’s Men’s Room,” Fitzpatrick wrote. “It’s very useful, but you just don’t get a lot of work.”

That prompted a playful response via Twitter from Duffy, who publicly professed he had never been to a Hooters. The restaurant, of course, is best known for dressing their waitresses in low-cut tops and short, orange shorts.

In an email Friday, Hooters spokeswoman Chantal O’Connell extended an open invitation to Duffy.

“In regard to Lt. Gov. Duffy never having visited a Hooters restaurant before — we’d definitely like to change that so please let him know he’d be welcome to visit any time :),” O’Connell wrote.

And O’Connell confirmed one other piece of information: Hooters does not, in fact, have baby-changing stations in their men’s bathrooms.

“But many of the women’s bathrooms do indeed have them installed!,” O’Connell wrote.
