And you have evidence of Schocks "illegal methods"? Perhaps if you do you should inform law enforcement so he can be properly arrested and tried in a court of law, instead of just spreading rumors without evidence.

What does this woman know about being intelligent? Isn't she the one who claimed they had to pass Obamacare to know what is in it? I would think the Prime Minister of Israel knows a lot more about Iran than the Congresswoman from San Francisco.

Illinois strip club tax being considered

From qctimes.com:

SPRINGFIELD — Illinois lawmakers could vote this spring to impose a “pole tax” — a tax on stripper poles, that is.

Under legislation pending in the Illinois Senate, operators of adult entertainment facilities would pay a $5 fee to the state for each person who enters their establishments, with the proceeds going to fund rape crisis centers and other sexual assault assistance organizations.

State Sen. Toi Hutchinson said it didn’t take long for a lobbyist representing strip club owners to contact her after she filed the proposal.

“I knew it was going to be provocative,” the Olympia Fields Democrat said.

Hutchinson said she has nothing against strip clubs and topless bars but thinks they should contribute to the cause of helping abused women.

“If you’re going to sell sex and alcohol, then bad things sometimes happen,” Hutchinson said. “I’m hopeful they’ll work with me to take some of the stink off their name.”
