San Francisco, Ca /Rolling Stone - This liberal bastion of "anything goes" mentality is now proposing "Proposition K" , a measure that will make it illegal for law enforcement to investigate, arrest or prosecute anyone involved in the prostitution profession.
Police spokesman said Proposition K may alleviate some of their problems that now cost tax payers $11m to prosecute about 1500 cases a year, with 95% receiving probation or small fines.
While the state still considers prostitution illegal, the city's action, if adopted, would effectively negate the state law.
State legislatures say that if SF voters pass the law, the issue could be tied up in the State Supreme Court for years, causing untold expenses to taxpayers and requiring massive doses of Preparation H for sitting judges.
A spokesperson for the "working girls" said if the law passes, they will be able to form Community Action Coalitions similar to ACORN and lobby for independent housing, universal health care, collective bargaining, unemployment benefits, and Workman's Comprehensive Insurance.
Pimps thrown of their management positions will be eligible for a one time buy out program on a tax payer funded "Golden Condom" retirement package.
Defense attorneys for former Governor Eliot Spitzer and Democratic Congressman Tim Mahoney are carefully watching progress on the Proposition.
Spokesman for both sexually addicted DEMS say they will move for a change of venue for upcoming trials on Spitzer, for aiding interstate prostitution, and Mahoney for possibly misusing campaign money to pay off one of his mistresses.
Spitzer, whose wife should divorce him, and Mahoney, whose wife has just filed for divorce, should both soon be homeless and able to change their residency to San Francisco and receive a pass on any wrongdoing if the bill is passed.
If charges are dropped it will clear the way for both politicians to resume their career . In any case, it has been reported elsewhere, that the question may be moot, as both have been assured by Obama's new Attorney General Alcee Hastings, that their names are near the top of the list for Presidential Pardons scheduled for January 21, 2009.
