Judging by the tweets, the District’s seizure of James “Tru” Redding‘s Stadium strip club is the biggest government shutdown since, well, the government shutdown, I guess.
When news broke yesterday that D.C. had taken over the club to collect on $100,000 in unpaid taxes from Redding’s shuttered TruOrleans restaurant, reactions on the social media service fell into several camps:

How you allow a club as popular as Stadium get seized is beyond me unless that bitch wasnt as profitable as it looked
