TOLD YOU

Here is an article in the Huffington Post confirming the lawsuit filed by Maxine Doogan was DISMISSED. 

JUST AS I PREDICTED.

The complaint wasn't written with one leg to stand on.  Not if the intent was to decriminalize prostitution as she's claiming the lawsuit was intended when she was out fund raising and garnering support from sex workers who don't have 30 years of experience with the legal system as I do (I've been working as a paralegal for 30 years since I left sex work).

Which is why when I first read the lawsuit, and knew it would be dismissed, I reached out to Maxine offering her support to modify the complaint to something I thought would have a better shot at winning the stated race of trying to get prostitution decriminalized.

So I contacted her attorney's directly thinking maybe Maxine just didn…

LETTER I SENT PATRICIA CALLAHAN

Dear Ms. Callahan:

LETTER I WROTE ARIANNA OF HUFFINGTON POST

Dear Arianna:

I'm preparing a report for the new administration about to be elected about the state of sex trafficking in the USA.  So far, I've been asking the Huffington Post to allow me to print SOMETHING, anything, about the work we're doing on this front.

So far, I've been ignored while you've brought in one after the other after the other of "influencers".  A common trade practice by companies such as Amazon - who just happens to have been arrested for prostitution a few months ago also.

 As of this moment, I'll be noting in my report this fact unless you have some explanation for why you continue to allow the views of "influencers" in your publication - but yet refuse to print even one word from this country's oldest, and largest, group of survivors of sex trafficking domestically, Sex Workers Anonymous.  Leaving us with…
