Two mothers are up in arms over a billboard they say is indecent.

The billboard, located along I-43 near East Troy, Wisconsin, is an advertisement for the strip club Show Palace Gentleman’s Club.

Dorene Muenkel has to drive past it every day with her young daughters and is not pleased.

“This has crossed the line, and I think it needs to come down,” she told WITI.

Muenkel and her friend Lisa Stoll complained to Gov. Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, but to no avail. The state can only regulate the size and lighting of billboards, not the content.

Show Palace Gentleman’s Club also attested that its controversial billboard was within the limits of the law.

“Show Palace Gentleman’s Club respects the public and never tries to offend anybody. By the nature of the business, we realize we can’t please everybody. We pride ourselves on classy advertising and classy entertainment. We apologize to these two women who have made this complaint,” a spokesperson for the club said in a statement.

Muenkel and Stoll say they will not give up their fight.

“It will be down,” Muenkel said. “It’s just a matter of when.”
