Why target strip clubs for a new tax?
“Other states have started to put an entrance fee on strip clubs, part of the thinking being that strip clubs, that work, objectifies women,” [executive director of the Springfield-based Illinois Coalition Against Sexual Assault Polly] Poskin, said. “And our work is to assist women who’ve been objectified and have suffered as a result of that.”
Uh-huh. It seems to me that they are, in some way, calling strip club patrons rapists. Lets just continue funding these things out of the general fund and not try drawing a line from strip clubs to rape.
