Pastor buying raffle tickets to save official from stun gun

VAN METER (AP) -

An Iowa clergyman is buying raffle tickets with the hope that he wins and will be able to spare a city official from being shocked by a stun gun.
   The city of Van Meter has been selling raffle tickets as part of a public safety fundraiser. The winner will get the opportunity to use a stun gun on City Administrator Jake Anderson or Councilman Bob Lacy.
   A pastor at Van Meter Baptist Church, Paul Porter, has been raising money to buy as many raffle tickets as he can. He told The Des Moines Register that if he were to win, neither man would get shocked.
   The American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa has condemned the event as an improper and dangerous use of a stun gun.
