MORE ON THE ATTACKS AGAINST US

Scroll down to the bottom of the attack site set up against us on www.sexworkersanonymous.org and note the date of July 15, 2015.

Note the date on this article about Relativity Media, the company who filmed "8 Minutes" on which this article of July 15, 2015.  Remember Kamylla claimed she was a woman who was paid to be on the show pretending to be a prostitute for them to pretend to save and is the woman they're claiming I was "using" to promote ourselves into the press.  http://deadline.com/2015/07/relativity-ryan-kavanaugh-lawsuit-catalyst-capital-1201476388/

Okay one point here - I challenge anyone to find anywhere online, in the news, anywhere where I identified Jeane Palfrey, the DC Madam, as a member of Sex Workers Anonymous until AFTER her death when I did so in protest of the determination she was a suicide victim.    Now if I was "trying to get some publicity" I would think I would have said something about the fact she was talking to me every day for the last two years of her life BEFORE she died.

I was NOT "exposing sensitive details on Kamylla online" as they were claiming.  Kamylla was a complete "catfish" used to raise money by people who THOUGHT she was on the show.   When I did get a call from a woman claiming she had been filmed on this show, nothing about her story washed.

THAT'S what I was exposing.

There was no case with the Houston court matching her story under ANY name.  She was claiming she was (1) being evicted, (2) being deported, and (3) had been arrested for prostitution by cops on the payroll of "8 Minutes".

The prosecutor and the jails in Houston said if she was not a US citizen, there would be no case pending under ANY name because they would not post bail for a non-US resident without a paycheck type of job.  They are held without bail until their case is heard because they might deport them.  In fact, there's been riots in jails lately over the fact they are holding aliens for indefinite periods of time without processing them just to collect that per diem for holding them.

Here's an article about just this practice.  http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/21/12072030-immigrant-detainees-land-in-limbo-in-alabama-jail  But she's supposedly gotten bail on a prostitution charge and needs money to fight the case?  SHE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN RELEASED.  Here's more about jails in Texas doing this.  https://www.hrw.org/legacy/reports98/us-immig/Ins989-05.htm

Every reporter said they had not seen her face, seen her face on the show, nor had they even seen a contract that she'd even been on the show.  Nor a copy of the $200 check she claimed she was paid.  Relativity Media's HR department refused to show the W2 or give any type of confirmation she was even on the show.  I have a tape recording of Relativity refusing to confirm she was even on the show.

By the way, she's not the only "catfish" on the show either.  Kelly Townsend is a man who claims HE was connected to "8 Minutes" as a private investigator.  http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2016/04/kelly-townsend-12-legions-of-angels.html

She told everyone she was from Brazil.  The voice of the woman who called me sounded Brazilian.  However, listen to the voice Maxine claims is Kamylla.  Does that sound Brazilian to you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw7OG6MD0Ss&index=31&list=UUh1P670bv7af17B1zzKShdg  Also, WHERE is Kathleen's "threat".

No I'm not going to post the original voice online because I think they may have coerced a real prostitute into calling me and I don't want to put her voice online.

Kathryn Griffin-Townsend was NOT even running a program back then this Kamylla was claiming to have been in.   I checked with all of her social media and found nothing on a diversion program.  When I spoke to the Houston jail, police, and prosecutor they each said she hadn't been running even her jail program - let alone their diversion program in over a year.

I didn't put up fundraisers for Kamylla - but the person who put together www.sexworkersanonymous.org did.  Not only did they use her to raise money, but also to get emails to generate support for Maxine's lawsuit against California.

More important to try and not let the cat out of the bag the show had been staged and faked and was NOT REALITY.

Why?

Two reasons.

One - that show was based on the premise that Kevin Brown ran a "real" trafficking program.  If it leaked out it was faked  - it would raise questions about people like Lexie Smith.  Lexie Smith who was speaking at Obama's church as a "trafficking survivor" courtesy of Shared Hope.   http://sharedhope.org/2016/03/04/3-ways-church-helped-free/

Not just Lexie - but also D'Lita Miller or Dee Tucker or whatever her name is.   Here she is on the cast http://www.aetv.com/shows/8-minutes/cast/dlita-miller  Then I have her on the phone telling me they "have no resources for victims".   Some "consultant".  When I offered to share a list with her of resources for victims - she blocked my phone.
http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/search/label/D'Lita%20Miller

Now does the cast photo look like this person?  http://ridley-thomas.lacounty.gov/index.php/survivor-of-trafficking/  The reason why I said "Dee Tucker" is I have people who claim that there WAS a legitimate program out here in Los Angeles, that got infiltrated by "imposters" who then took over the program right out from under her and then ousted her out.

Sounded a lot like how I have Brenda Myers-Powell having done three documentaries now making it appear SHE'S the founder of Prostitutes Anonymous instead of me so I get it.  Ask someone in Chicago who founded PA and they'll tell you "Brenda".

Why?  Money.   Lots of grant money. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/trafficking-599120-beach-long.html

Meaning if the truth came out the show "8 Minutes", and the team of people doing the show, were complete "catfish" then that's a pretty big conspiracy to defraud not only the government, but also the donors who were going to all those church fundraisers while the show was on the air.

So was I "threatening and exposing a sex worker online"?

Nope.

I was exposing a fraud.

Another Samoly Mam who is hiding the voices of REAL victims of trafficking and REAL sex workers.  Not "influencers" like Domina Elle and Maxine Doogan.  Jenna Jameson called out to unionize sex workers.   http://inthesetimes.com/working/entry/6569/jenna_jameson_calls_for_porn_stars_union_after_actors_positive_hiv_tes

In all the press about Kamylla and "8 Minutes" and Maxine Doogan's lawsuit - have you heard one peep out of anyone about a union?  http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/3691984-181/group-seeking-to-legalize-prostitution

Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire trying to get prostitution legalized in this country, who is obviously supportive of what Maxine is doing, is a union buster.  http://www.peoplesworld.org/billionaire-casino-owner-adelson-takes-aim-at-unions/

I never opposed brothels in California when I defeated Joe in 1988 - I opposed the workers had no union nor advocate.  Same for when they wanted to expand into Las Vegas twice and I opposed them and won.  So while Maxine and Domina Elle are pushing legalization, and trying to attack me personally - they're also trying to attack someone supportive of unionizing sex workers.

Relativity Media also took investors money based on "8 Minutes" being a reality show.  So they were screaming fraud also - and Ryan had to back them down by saying he wasn't.  So he couldn't have me running around saying he was.

THIS is how the modern pimps fight.  In the streets they get their "bottom bitch" to do their fighting and threatening.  Online - they get Domina Elle, Maxine Doogan, Christina Parriera, etc.

Don't know what or who to believe?

I have clips spanning 30 years at www.hightechmadam.com

There are two sites online bashing me.  BOTH set up in 2015 by Domina Elle.   Both written by her with clips and screenshots she claims are mine.

Meaning she's violated my privacy while attacking me for supposedly doing the same to Kamylla.  You are also reading she drove by my address listed online to see if it was where I lived.

So who is threatening and violating the privacy of who here?

Do you see any others posted before or after attacking me than hers by anyone else?

John Quinones came to visit me and liked what he saw.  So did Bob Herbert.  So did the findings of Sharon Oselin's 10 year study "Leaving Prostitution".

So you take a look at this and I think any person who can read can figure out what's going on here.

She's also begging me to sue her.  I won't.   What give her a date and time where I'm going to be?  Don't think so.  Anyone with half a brain can see what those sites are.

No different than when I had stashed a woman in a safe house in 1984 and the pimp retaliated by calling the cops and claiming I was "running a brothel" and got me arrested.

Pimps retaliate.

Means I'm doing my job.

If I can't expose a poser how would I keep a pimp plant out of our meetings?  Think about it.  They cleaned up on fund raisers, grants, investors and supports to legalize prostitution WITHOUT unionizing.

And I'm the predator?

LETTER TO JAMES QUEALLY

Dear James:

Read your article. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-california-trafficking-task-force-20151119-story.html  I'd love to ask you this question.

First, let me introduce myself.  IF you look at the news clips at www.hightechmadam.com you'll see I was arrested in 1984 for supposedly "running a brothel".  Only think about it - a warehouse with high tech security equipment next to the police station?  What the warehouse was in reality was the first safe house for adult sex trafficking victims.  I had rescued a woman whose pimp had broken her arm and nose who was sleeping in the warehouse when the pimp tried to break in to drag her back.  He couldn't get it and he couldn't shoot up the place without the police hearing the noise (why we put it there).

So he calls in a tip that the place was a "brothel".  The woman was on probation for prostitution and answered the door in her PJ's.  Of course to the police a woman answering the door of a warehouse in her PJ"s who is a prostitute must mean the place is a brothel.  We sorted it out and she testified against the pimp.  The charges against me were dropped. but I now had a problem.

Clearly I couldn't just go on doing rescues without going out to change the world.  At that time in history calling the police to say someone was being trafficked met with the same response as if I were to call them up today saying little green men from mars were trafficking victims and our legal system needed to change to help these victims.   If you even told a therapist back then about sex trafficking they would literally try and lock you up for observation thinking you were hallucinating.  The world then believed sex trafficking had died years ago with the days of the Barbary Coast.

So I contacted Edwin Meese who had prepared the Meese Report.  He told me if we formed a 12 step program we could provide "alternative to sentencing" for the victims until such time as we could change the laws of the land and get people to realize this was happening.  So in 1987 we launched the first hotline for adults (Children of the Night had a hotline for teens), along with our 12 step program.  With then mayor Tom Bradley's help we also put together the first alternative sentencing program, the first outreach to the sex industry, and set about for the first time getting social services and our legal system to view these victims as such and not criminals.

Meaning I'm the founder of the modern day sex trafficking movement.  We achieved federal recognition when the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed.  So all of this is very new.  While I spent 13 years going on national media explaining that sex trafficking was real, was happening in the USA,  and was happening to American men and women (not just the Chinese here or only in other countries as previously thought) - I'm still dealing with a world who doesn't understand the differences between prostitution, pimping and sex trafficking.

We didn't start this movement to have every sex worker branded a "victim".  We started this movement because it was open season on us by everyone.  If you look back at our history here in Los Angeles in the 1980's - we had a record number of serial killers targeting prostitutes.  The Grim Reaper case alone took 25 years to get resolved.  Even these victims mothers protesting in the streets the police were "doing nothing" about these murders didn't have an impact until years later when a reporter started putting pressure on them in the 2000's.   We wren't just "whores" in the eyes of the police and the public - but also criminals because prostitution is illegal.  This meant that we were not only being forced to work as prostitutes against our will, but also sold, kidnapped, murdered, robbed, raped, etc., with no one caring.  If you doubt how bad it was/is - I ask you to name me one case even today where a known prostitute has filed rape charges and won anything but a "theft of services" award?

Pimps are one thing - but traffickers another.  Trafficking doesn't exist without two things - the first is a connection with drugs through organized crime.  Prostitutes are used as drug mules and dealers to further protect their pimps from drug charges.  The way cocaine in the 80's for example got from the docks, to being processed by gangs in south central, into the homes of the Hollywood elite was in the purses of high-class escorts ordered through madams like I was back then.

The second is corruption.  Those boats and planes with drugs didn't get into this country without someone being greased or even being a part of the operation.  In the 1980's I was witnessing Iran Contra.  If you don't know what that is - it's where our CIA was raising cash to buy guns for the Contra's by selling cocaine.  So they brought the cocaine into this country through the gangs of Los Angeles who also got the blame.  It wasn't the CIA being blasted on the 11:00 o'clock news - it was the gangs.  Images of battering rams in south central crack houses were being shown in major media as where the drugs were coming from without even asking the question - how did it get into south central when most of those kids couldn't even drive a car let alone a boat or plane?  Look at even the movie "American Gangster" showing the drugs were coming into NY on military planes in caskets from Asia.

When I set up these first projects in Los Angeles - the authorities then knew what I was dealing with. Victims who can't call law enforcement for help because in the cases of trafficking victims - that's who they're running from.  So we used our hotline and these calls were, and are, answered by another survivor on the assurance we're not connected with law enforcement.  Why is this important to a victim?  http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/When-Jailbirds-Sing-It-was-the-pure-savagery-of-3018647.php  This is why.  Margo was calling for help in the 1970's.  The police weren't equipped even to help her and it resulted in her murder and her children's.  Corruption aside - the system didn't even understand she had to be put into special protection so this wouldn't happen for what she did.  Her story is why I had a secured warehouse with surveillance cameras and special security - again completely unheard of in 1984 when I'd set this up - but necessary.

Is this still happening?  Of course.  Look at the cases of Kemp Schiffer, Chris Butler, the DEA agents who owned a strip club in NJ who was trafficking dancers, as well as the recent news of two cops in Chicago who were trafficking a 14 year old girl.

Two years ago, a woman called me up who resides in Pasadena to tell me she was being trafficked by people connected to Liang Yaohui.  http://sinosphere.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/29/trial-of-chinese-hotelier-features-accusations-of-prostitution/?_r=0  This was before his arrest.  She'd been forced to work as a prostitute since she was 8 years old and she was now turning 50.  Her son was entering UCLA and she wanted to quit.  She told them she was quitting to accept a marriage proposal to a man in Florida - only to find herself being drug out of her home by two police officers where she was then slapped with two phony prostitution charges.  She was then told if she didn't "go back to work" that they'd hit her with a 3rd which would get her deported wherein she would then be slapped with a charge that would get her the death penalty in China.  They had photos of her they'd made by drugging her and forcing her to pose with her sister - a crime punishable by death in China.  They further threatened to charge her son, who had now turned 18, with "pimping" for receiving money from her earnings as a prostitute and ruining his life.

She came to me because I run the only hotline and program for those who are dealing with this type of thing.  This woman can't call the police for help nor just go into some homeless or domestic violence shelter.  They're not equipped for her type of situation.  No sex trafficking "safe house" in Los Angeles is set up for that type of victim yet.   I obtained an attorney for her who set about to try and see if her story about the fake charges were even true by ordering a copy of her booking video first.  In response, he was threatened by a police officer and attorney.  I then went to speak to her - whereupon I was threatened by a police officer.  I have recorded the threat made to me by the way.

I've been getting so many calls from Los Angeles over the last two years by women identical to her story, as well as prostitutes informing me they're HIV positive who also had slept with Charlie Sheen, that I started getting alarmed.   Then so many members of SWA started telling me of other alarming things going on out here they were begging me to relocate out here again so I could get back re-involved with the legal system in order to do something about these issues.    So I did.  I moved out here about a year ago.  In fact, right before Jim McDonnell's election.

I was told that "there was nothing he could do" about these complaints I was hearing about until he was elected into office.  After he was elected into office - I was told there was "nothing he could do" until he was inaugurated.  Then I was told "nothing could be done" until he "formed his policy".   Then  I was told "nothing could be done" until he obtained his grant money.

Well now he's obtained his grant money.  The ACLU has been awarded money to do something about the police corruption in this town.  I've written to every Internal Affairs office I can find about these threats I've received, and other prostitutes have received from men in law enforcement.   So James - I'm writing to ask you to please ask Jim McDonnell when exactly he's going to be willing to talk to me about what our members are coming to me about.

We already know Charlie Sheen has now admitted to spending over $10 million dollars to try and cover up his HIV status.  I have no doubt that has something to do with why the police stop arresting juvenile prostitutes in 2015.  The reason is because mandatory HIV testing is required when one is arrested for prostitution.  So we now do not have any accurate HIV results for 2015.

Which is a real threat to public health and safety being that we have a confirmed HIV epidemic in Tijuana.  Anyone knows the Mexican Cartel is trafficking women from Tijuana into San Diego, and thus the rest of this country.  There's video footage of them bringing women in from Mexico right into the fields down in southern California.  This was in 2008 - meaning that yes this is why I'm now getting the same amount of phone calls into our hotline now that I used to get in the 1980's HIV epidemic.

Only what's different now is when I saw this epidemic in the 1980's affecting sex workers and I started contacting the CDC, and people like Mayor Tom Bradley and Edwin Meese - these men did something about the situation.  I however can't get Jim on the phone.  I've asked to even be put on the list to be notified of when there are meetings with respect to this trafficking task force - and can't get anything out of anyone.  They act like we don't exist in fact.

Which is ironic James because if not for me and my big mouth - they wouldn't have a task force to begin with.  What they're doing is the same as setting up a DUI court while trying to act like Bill Wilson and AA don't exist.  But that's the difference between us and AA - no one forces the alcoholic to drink against his will.  So James - can you please ask Jim for me what he's going to do about any of this?

Leave it up to Kevin Brown?  http://www.latimes.com/local/great-reads/la-me-c1-prostitute-squad-20131002-dto-htmlstory.html  Only problem with that is that all this publicity about this so called "outreach" was used to create the so called reality series "8 Minutes".  Which was exposed in April of 2015 as being completely bogus.  It was scripted and staged with actors.  There was no outreach.   It was all one big "catfish".  Someone should have figured that out when Greg Reese and Kevin Brown were trying to do "outreach" while also acting like our program which started the movement out here didn't exist either.

Or D'Lita Miller?  The technical consultant for "8 Minutes" who helped stage the fraud?  The producers of "8 Minutes" by the way are being sued by their investors for fraud.  They were also told the show was "reality" when it was not and they lied about a lot of other things.  So they're in bankruptcy proceedings right now.   When I contacted Ms. Miller to ask her why she would help stage a fraud upon the public about a fake rescue operation - she said it was because they were "trying to raise money to create resources".   I explained to her there ARE resources.  Right here and I have a huge database of resources I offered to share with her so they could pass them along to victims who actually believed them and reached out for help.

She blocked my calls after that.   Had another fund raiser to go to I guess.  Well no actually she admitted she was forced to be silent because of the confidentiality agreement she'd signed with Relativity Media.

So my questions remain.  Up until two years ago, if I needed to get a victim out away from a trafficker - we just did it.  With victims of Snoop Dogg, Chris Butler, Kemp Schiffer, and others I can't talk about because they're not in the papers let so I can without violating confidences - I just got them out.  However, we have a whole new technology now to deal with that didn't exist a few years ago.  The phones of these victims are tapped.  My phones are being tapped.   We are under surveillance as you know by the NSA.  Surveillance corrupt police can easily access.

Meaning we can't organize rescues anymore without being overheard.    RICO laws were written because you can arrest someone in a criminal operation - but the operation goes on.  Which is what happened in Wichita with respect to the victims there of this operation connected to Liang Yaohui.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/24/gary-kidgell-yan-zhang-sex-trafficking-kansas_n_3647993.html  The ring is also part of this - http://www.buzzfeed.com/sheerafrenkel/former-usc-students-indicited-selling-trade-secrets-to-china#.sim7W46Aa so they're quite sophisticated technologically as you can tell by this article.

The victims in Wichita were set free because prosecutors there were wiling to arrest the pimps despite the death threats and the corruption.  In fact, the arresting officer was fought so hard by other officers who were on the payroll to get these arrests he waited until he retired from the police force.  He then got hired at the Zoning Dept.  From there he was able to gather the evidence which led to these arrests.

Now I have plenty of information tying Gary Kidgell, and those connected to the heads of this operation as being connected in Pasadena.  I've been told "nothing can be done" until a "complaint is filed with the Pasadena police".  Only they're the ones who have threatened the victims and even myself.   So I can't do that.  I've gone to Internal Affairs who tells me there's nothing they can do - they just had files burned over their objections for the last five years.  I've gone to City Council who tells me they're "busy" with $6 million dollars stolen.  I've gone to the politicians who tell me there's "nothing they can do" until a police report has been filed.   I went to the Attorney General's office who told me there was an investigation being done already into the police and we had to wait "until the report was done".

Well the report's been done.  And redacted and revised.  I've gone to the ACLU who tells me Jim's been stalling them about doing anything they want to do.

So James - can you ask Jim what he plans on doing about any of this?  I've love to hear about it because in the meantime we have a serious problem.  Women who may be HIV positive are being forced to work as prostitutes without protection, testing or prevention.   I started to go out in the streets to do an outreach campaign about the signs the state has now required to be posted in places like massage parlors and strip clubs thinking that while we were hanging signs we could also do some HIV outreach.  Only I got threatened again by the police with a "5150" campaign.  So I can't subject myself or other SWA members to being carted off like Sandra Bland possibly to do outreach unless I know I have the support of the police behind me.

I've love to hear what answers you get because I'm not getting any.  I asked to speak at the HEAT conference about these issues and they told me there was "no time for public comments".

Thanks.

PS - Dear James:  In reading further at the bottom of your article I see Merrill Ladenheim is actually going to be the head of the task force now.  http://www.loscerritosnews.net/2014/06/17/cerritos-sheriff-captain-abruptly-transferred-to-lakewood/ 

Maybe you can ask him what's going to be done now.  

I've love to hear the answer since I never know when their meetings are to attend as no one will send me the notices.

Thank you.

Jody Williams

PSS - James:  Could you please ask Merrill Ladenheim if he's still feeling the same way about Tanaka now he's head of the trafficking task force?  http://abc7.com/news/exclusive-abc7-eyewitness-news-obtains-lasd-trial-evidence/350453/

Especially in light of the charges of skimming money from a foster group home?  http://witnessla.com/category/paul-tanaka/

DEATH TO THE MADAM INSTITUTION & RISE OF THE GOVERNMENT INFORMANT

Before Google - if you were a wealthy, famous, or powerful man who couldn't risk something like what happened to the Secret Service down in Columbia happens when you pick up a street walker, or what happened to Steve Sassa when an escort's pimp was blackmailing him, or when Donald Banks got blackmailed by Teofil for $500,000 - the sex industry had madams.

Madams allowed students, aspiring lawyers, house wives, writers, and anyone who wanted to work as an escort without fear of records of phone numbers or ads coming back to haunt them years down the road - would work for a madam so they could maintain their confidentiality.  They also worked for madams because the calls were pre-screened and they knew what they were walking into as they walked in to it.  That's what they paid for.  Madams had "black books" of clients they did business with regularly so they knew who they were sending young girls, or boys (think American Gigolo), into seeing.  So there wasn't any real danger - usually.  If a guy was dangerous - the madam knew about it and would "black list" them.  Ethical ones anyway.

The clients paid the money to maintain discretion.  If the prostitute would steal something - I'd take it back to the client because I wanted his repeat business.  If one of the girls got sick - I'd make a discrete phone call to him rather than the health department.  If one of the women started even thinking about blackmail - I'd threaten to blacklist her out of the business.  Because again I had a regular clientele I wanted to keep happy and keep coming back.  These men could come to my house I'd set up so these women, and men, wouldn't know the clients real names, or have anything they could blackmail them with again like we saw with the Donald Banks case.  If he'd paid a madam in the old days - that whole scandal would not have happened.  If it had been attempted - we'd go deal with it, get his money back, and that would have been the end of it.  So if you think about it - confidentiality has always been a big deal to me.  

But again the internet has changed things.  Now one thing also used to happen with madams that I talk about with Iran Contra with me, and other things.  I was approached by men within our own government wanting information on girls who had no family who would question their disappearance.  They wanted white girls, blue eyes preferable, without a drug problem, and who didn't have anyone who would miss them if they were to disappear.

I was offered $25,000 a woman and told all I had to do was send her on an appointment where they'd be waiting with chloraform to knock her out.  Then she'd be loaded onto a diplomat's plane which is not stopped or searched.  Thinking if this was real I needed to stop it - I asked to know more details.  I was then shown everything about the operation - including that the women were being sold or traded for oil deals, government contracts, trade secrets, drug deals, etc.  For all I knew - this was a set-up to see if I'd bite.  Maybe it was just some guy yanking my chain.  So to see if this was for real - I asked to see more of the operation by pretending to entertain their offer.  

Once I saw this was real, and had names, addresses, planes even - I of course then went to law enforcement who didn't believe me.  Remember, we as a world didn't believe sex trafficking existed in the 1970's and 1980's.  So I set up my own security to protect us - hence why I had a warehouse by the police station that was armed with security equipment, cameras, a computer, etc.  (www.hightechmadam.com for clippings).   

Now I refused to make these deals because I'm just not that kind of person.  Because I refused I was told I had better comply or they would "arrest me and take everything I earned and wipe me out" which is exactly what they did.  Then they tried to make a movie glamorizing me as they'd done with Dolly Pardon and the madam down in Texas who ran the "Chicken Ranch".  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lraodsPEQ78

Only I began to notice a pattern.

I watched that film, and others like the "Happy Hooker", (which in today's world would be Magic Mike XXL), and it enticed me into the business.  I then started seeing the other madams who were arrested having the same type of movie produced.  I then went to each of them from the Beverly Hills Madam, the Hollywood Madam, and the Mayflower Madam to name a few and asked them why they let such an unrealistic movie be made about them.

In each case I heard "who cares about the truth - I got paid".  Okay that's my answer.  I began to see these films as "inphomercials" to entice others to replace us - just as Heidi Fleiss then thought she could rise up and replace Alex and me.  Because of course "she's smarter" than us and "could make it work" as every addict tells themselves.

Even Jeane Palfrey had the same experience.  We heard about this when I knew her and even from Montgomery Sibley in his interview with us.  When she refused to sell women for government deals - they busted her, took everything she owned, and I believe killed her to silence her when she was trying to warn us.  Again, she refused a plea bargain to walk because she wanted to get the proof out there in her phone records of what was happening.

But the internet has pretty much wiped out the madam.  The porn industry has "agents".  Strippers have "managers".  But madams are pretty much extinct.  Prostitutes can use google phones, and hushemails, and run ads where they "anonymize" their email address while TOR can "anonymize" your IP address.  

So what replaces us with respect to who is going to funnel information on men and women in the sex industry to men like I witnessed if the days of the madam are over?

I invite you to read this article very carefully.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/records-show-las-vegas-constable-s-office-database-misuse  This computer system database is not just in Las Vegas either.  When Rick Rizzolo was in custody in California - there was an Orange County Sheriff who was busted, http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2012/03/rick_rizzolo_mike_carona_las_v.phphttp://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2012/03/rick_rizzolo_mike_carona_las_v.php  and his computer privileges revoked because he was supposedly selling information to Rick http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2007/10/oc_sheriff_carona_indicted_for.php    on people in the porn and strip industry out of this computer spoken about in this article here - http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2015/05/orange_county_prosecutor_misconduct_judge_goethals_takes_district_attorney.html

Now - notice how this computer in Orange County also says it has in it's database a list of "informants".  As I've told you in previous blogs, I was approached by law enforcement years ago and offered a monthly salary in exchange for being an informant because of answering our hotline and running many of our meetings, and talking to our members all over the USA.  I refused.  

Welcome to Abeni, and the Cupcake Girls, as well as groups run by D'Lita Miller, Safe Passage who was working with Kevin Brown, etc.   Here's some links to these types of groups that have popped up since 2013

https://www.facebook.com/AbeniOC and http://www.thecupcakegirls.org/ and http://www.ocregister.com/articles/reese-373758-brown-sweets.html

Please notice what each of these group's has in common - a connection with law enforcement and also with the state legislature.

Cupcake Girls - Nevada legislature.  http://www.thecupcakegirls.org/#!A-Step-Forward-for-Sex-Trafficking-Survivors/cmbz/556fa0860cf219f177242529  Notice Assemblyman John Hambrick is backing them.  Only John Hambrick also backed Congo Justice who pushed to get AB67 pushed through while ignoring members of Sex Workers Anonymous who were strongly objecting, as well as SWOP members according to Jennifer Reed.  I also have a videotape of an SWA member, Aubrey, who spoke to the Nevada legislature against AB67, and also to stop the brothel expansion into Las Vegas to John Hambrick directly and he is on the videotape speaking to her - that he later than denied any knowledge of that very evening on his Facebook page.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/nevada-legislature/prostitution-bill-not-nevada-legislatures-agenda  (Aubrey stood up to George alone to defeat this bill that wasn't even listed on the calendar - and we won.  Do you see her or our name here as credited?)  

When I showed him the recording to prove he knew this woman and spoke to her - he blocked me off his Facebook page.  So no - Assemblyman John Hambrick is NOT the sex trafficking victim's friend.  But here he is pushing the Cupcake Girls with this phony claim that "they can't find work because of a trespassing charge".  Every casino in Nevada WILL hire someone with such a charge - and the only thing that is blocked from them in Nevada to my knowledge because of a prostitution arrest is to get a license to work at the legal brothels.

Let's look at Abeni.  They're listed as connected to the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force.  Right here on their staff directory - http://www.egovlink.com/ochumantrafficking/staff_directory.asp

Safe Passage - https://www.linkedin.com/company/safe-passage-oc  Founded by a retired cop who had partnered with Kevin Brown, another ex-cop.

Seeing a pattern here yet?

Notice something else - what's lacking?

I don't see Sex Workers Anonymous listed on this task force, nor anything to do with these groups.  In fact, each one of these groups has blocked me when I contacted them upon hearing of them to find out what they do for our hotline.  Now if they don't like SWA that's one thing.  But I do answer the only hotline currently for adults who are not just trafficking victims - but want to leave, and recover, from the sex industry in any form.  I can't do everything - so I give out referrals.

I hear about a new group and I reach out to them to find out what they do so I can give out referrals.  Only when I reached out to all three of these groups, Cupcake Girls, Abeni and Safe Passage - I not only got shut down, blocked and blown off but Meg from Abeni even started telling people that I was "stalking her, threatening her, and she was scared to leave her house for fear of me".  Why?  I can show you a transcript of the whole conversation if you'd like and tell me if my asking questions about what Abeni does would inspire you to have so much fear you'd be asking people where I live so you can swear out a warrant on me. You know with this much grant money at stake - people can get really weird let me tell you when it comes to "economic interference" as the law states and for which a lawsuit is being drawn up against these groups by the way as we speak.

Which I won't publish the conversation here because she has photos of her children of her facebook page.  Now if she wants to claim she's helping sex trafficking victims while posting photos of her children and risk their safety like that - that's her decision.  But I'm not going to play into it simply because I think she's a fraud.  If she was helping these victims - trust me someone would be threatening her children and those photos would not be online.  But maybe she's just stupid - so I'm not going to publish them.  You'll notice I don't publish any photos of my daughter anywhere despite how beautiful she is because I care about her safety.  She's not even "friended" on my social media for that reason.

But both Orange County and Las Vegas have computer databases where information on people in the sex industry is listed.  It's not "official" and Slate says it's also a database of informants.  If you saw the series on TV recently about the man who infiltrated the Hell's Angels - then you have an idea how informants work.  They gain your trust, pump you for information, and then as we saw in the Rick "Freeway" Ross case - they also set you up to get arrested and put away for life.

If you read his story - while enticing people into investing in him being an "at risk community rebuilder" he also still spoke to someone who was an informant.  This informant then threatened to kill someone supposedly to get him to agree to return to crime.  However, I know good and well from experience he could have gone to someone and agreed to put a wire on that informant, have him arrested and sent off to jail.  Certainly someone with all his connections could have done that.  But no - he went ahead and got himself arrested again.  There's also allegations that Rick Ross is even a "snitch".  http://allhiphop.com/2014/12/01/exclusive-freeway-rick-ross-responds-to-rapper-rick-ross-allegations-hes-a-snitch/

My point about the informant here is this clipping shows proof that some guy was walking around on a $40,000 a year salary to do nothing but go around setting people up.    http://www.biography.com/people/ricky-ross-481828

Our organization goes to great lengths to protect the confidentiality and "anonymity" of our members.  We don't sell our Recovery Guide on Amazon for one reason - Amazon can turn over a list of the buyers to law enforcement if they wanted to.  Now do only members of SWA buy the book?  No.  But some do.  So that I protect those members - I self-publish and sell the book myself.  I then burn the bank information.

It's probably why I'm now on the "second generation" of victims in our work.  What I mean by that is that I'm now getting calls for help from mothers we helped in the 80's and 90's who are now finding their kids being trafficked and want to call someone they trust for help - so they call us.  

There's another group who protects the confidentiality of their clients - www.childrenofthenight.org  They do NOT take federal grants, nor are they structured in such a way where they can be audited by an outside group that would reveal donor, client, or other information on people who call their hotline, or go into her program.

Notice a pattern?  That the same places that DON'T list us - also aren't listing Children of the Night.  So is this personal against me?  Nope.  We're not affiliated with CON or Lois Lee in any way.  I've never even met the woman in person.  So it's not personal against us nor against them.

What's the common denominator?  Abeni claims to not be faith based - although the other groups are. So it's not that we aren't faith based.

So what's the common denominator?  We protect the anonymity of those we help.  That's one thing.  We also aren't using these people as research data - but actually helping them.  Nor are we pumping them for information and then casting them aside - we're actually helping them.  Hence the common denominator.  

Now here's something interesting.  I got a call from a woman who says she connected to the Cupcake Girls in Vegas when they were in a strip club doing make-overs for the strippers.  She got pretty pissed because she says she can't get a job outside of prostitution because she's from another country and she can't get her birth certificate - so she can't get an ID and thus can't work.  But rather than help her - they're giving make-overs and blew her off when she asked them for help.

Now I'd like to add in strip clubs they have undercover cameras that take your photo.  If she asked for help from the Cupcake Girls inside that club - she gave them contact information.  There's also cameras inside the clubs which can easily go back and take her photo after she'd identified herself to this Cupcake Girl rep.

But here's a little known fact - if someone gets your photo they can put that photo into security cameras that are in casinos like the Cosmopolitan.   That casino takes a photo of your face when you enter the casino.  It's then ran through a database to see if you're a card cheat - or have a warrant out.  Then they alert security  so that you're to be escorted out of the casino.  http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2011-06/spy-vs-spy-casinos-cant-see-cameras-hidden-gamblers-sleeves

Now this woman told me she'd been working as a hooker out of the strip casinos for about eight months without one hitch.  Friday night she walks into the Cosmopolitan and security is on her.  She swears she wasn't doing anything but had just walked into the casino.  Then security came up to her and said either she could go with them "willingly or she'd be handcuffed".  I asked her "you do know that's kidnapping right if they try to restrain you or hold you without being arrested?" To which she said "but they were going to hand cuff me".  Well she still complied so technically she gave them consent.

She then told me the same story I've heard 1000 times out of Vegas and other clubs - they were photographed and then told if they "come back again they'll be arrested".  They do this because they don't want accurate records in Nevada for the prostitution activity.  They also don't charge them with prostitution because the law states anyone arrested for prostitution in Nevada has to have an HIV test.
After Nevada prostitutes came back with an 80 percent positive HIV rate  in the 1990's - they stopped arresting most of these women for prostitution.  Instead, they do a 24, 48 or 72 hour hold where they're not even arrested or charged.  They're just held in the jail for that time period - where of course they get paid per day for each day these men and women are in custody.

Now their numbers of HIV positive prostitutes disappears.

What a racket.

If they do charge them with anything - it's trespassing most of the time.  You really got to piss someone off to get arrested for solicitation in Nevada.  I did an informal interview once inside Clark County jail for women and literally half of the women in custody were on a 24, 48 or 72 hour hold where they were told to either accept the hold or have a prostitution arrest on their record.  About 25 percent of the women told me they were not prostituting but they would be so ashamed of a prostitution arrest on their record - they simply took the hold without question rather than risk a record.

What a racket.

But my point being that this is not the first call I've gotten where someone has found themselves magically arrested for something within a very short period of time after talking to the Cupcake Girls.

If you ask me - people have learned a lot from watching me - but they're doing it the wrong way.  In 2012, I spoke to someone who worked at Polaris.  I explained there was a woman who wouldn't leave the pimp's house or watchful eye except when she was on a call.  To extract her from the pimp - we'd set up a fake appointment with a volunteer who pretended to be a customer.  We found a hotel where we could take her out of the window of the room (not easy when most windows nowadays don't open in motels), to get her away from the pimp.  I had explained the "sting" to Polaris - and then interestingly I see the premise of "8 Minutes" pop up with the whole "john sting" idea in a motel setting.

Not unlike how I sent a letter to NBC about how we'd also find out trafficking information by going online and pretending to be a young pretty girl to flush out the pimps.  A year later - we see Chris Hanson with "To Catch a Predator".

These people also know that members talk in our meetings about their lives, and what they've gone through.  They know or they wouldn't have approached me to pay me as an informant.  They came to me in the late 1990's and asked me for "research data".  When I refused - well we have Polaris now don't we?  Who doesn't do anything that 911 doesn't do.

Let me explain.  When we started this work in 1987 - we went to the police and we asked them how many murder victims were prostitutes.   They told us "we don't keep records like that".  Okay.  I then went to the ER and asked them how many of the violent attacks they treated were victims of pimps vs. a husband or boyfriend.  They said "we don't keep records like that".  I contacted the Rape Hotline and asked them "how any of your rapes are prostitutes being raped on the job?"  To which I heard "we don't keep records like that".   I then went to the jail and asked them how many of their inmates were prostitutes.  We were told "we don't keep records like that".    I went to the drug treatment centers and asked them "how many of your clients are prostitutes?"  To which I heard "we don't keep records like that?"  And so on.

Frustrated, and remember I was 25 years old at this time and very naive about how the system works - I asked "well can we?"  To which I got explained about the 5th amendment right now to "incriminate yourself".   So basically the police, the treatment centers, the hospitals, doctors, counselors all told me "we aren't going to ask if they're prostitutes on our forms because then we're asking them to admit to a crime - which is a violation of their constitutional rights".

I then said "can we ask them anyway and see if they'll tell us voluntarily?"  For which they said "if we ask - then we have to mirandize them under the law because it's incriminating.  Also, if we ask them and they say yes then we're obligated to report this to the police.  We don't want to do that - it's a whole can of worms."  Ok got it.

So now we have this:

http://www.hhs.gov/asl/testify/2014/09/t20140911a.html

They explained that if they started asking and then made the required report to the police about their answer  - that the fear was the prostitute wouldn't seek help for drug abuse, rape, violence, etc.  I then asked "well what's the difference between saying I'm an addict vs. saying I'm a prostitute?"   Isn't it a crime to say you're using illegal drugs?

To which I got informed there are laws in place federally that state once you ask for help for drug treatment, rape or domestic violence - the laws of confidentiality go into place.  Here's information on some of those laws.  http://adaiclearinghouse.org/downloads/TAP-13-Confidentiality-of-Patient-Records-for-Alcohol-and-Other-Drug-Treatment-103.pdf

But mind you in 1987 - we had no federal recognition that sex trafficking was even real.  We didn't get federal recognition until the year 2000.   Which means we aren't going to get laws passed about the confidentiality of people seeking help until we get it recognized as real - which again didn't happen until the year 2000.  Then magically in 2002 - we get the National Trafficking Hotline.

So for a long time I tried to figure out why is the Polaris Hotline basically taking information but not doing anything for the caller?  Then it clicked - data.  You get raped and call them and identify.  Then they turn you over to law enforcement for help - but Polaris now got the data on a prostitute being raped that the police report doesn't note.

Am I wrong?  They sure get a lot of research grant money.   http://www.polarisproject.org/component/content/article/1-national-human-trafficking-hotline/245-federal-anti-trafficking-efforts

Polaris has acknowledged problems with the 5th amendment and their hotline.  They said to me that's "why we don't record calls unless asked to" and also said "we don't refer anyone to law enforcement unless they ask".  But this is an acknowledgment they know that what these people are saying to them essentially is a form of incrimination.

Meaning can someone in law enforcement go in and pull their 800 phone number phone logs and identify who called them against their wishes?  Absolutely.  Not something they're going to shout from the roof tops by the way along with those billboards - that yes law enforcement can issue a warrant or subpoena for their phone logs and get data on the phone numbers of people who have called them for help that are not protected under the same laws that addicts and alcoholics have in place when they call for help.

Now you know why I publish my home cell phone number along with our 800 number where someone can call my private home phone number from a blocked number.  By being an ordained minister, by using my private home phone to take calls, and by not using an 800 number that records your incoming phone number automatically on a log when you call us - no one can pull our phone records without obtaining a warrant first.  So if I hear one more person say to me "well you don't have a business line so you must not be legit" I'm going to scream.  I have a residential line so that I can protect the information on the callers to our hotline and therefore I will get calls that the other hotlines who don't - well don't.

Now I ask you - if I take these precautions to protect you so that you can come forward for help without worrying about it coming back to bite you, or to ask people who know about trafficking to call me and tip me off to it without fear of anyone finding out they told us - what about these people who say they want to help you, care about you, but don't take these steps?  Even Polaris is trying to protect you by not recording calls, and not turning over any information to law enforcement unless you ask them to (except of course where required by law such as when a child is in danger, etc.)?

Cupcake Girls?  Abeni?  Safe Passage?

How much is this data worth?  I contacted a group out in Los Angeles when I saw a big press release about them doing an outreach campaign to look for victims.  I assumed if they were doing this - then they had some resources available.  Since I'm preparing to do an outreach in Los Angeles - I wanted to find out what resources they had so if a victim says to me "yeah I want out of here" I know where I can put them.  Because I don't do outreach unless I have somewhere to take them.  Hearing they're doing outreach - I assumed they had somewhere to take them.

So I called them to ask about this.  I'd also read that Orange County had just received $400,000 to provide housing for victims http://district34.cssrc.us/content/janets-journal-june-2015     and Los Angeles had received $1,000,000 for housing for victims - https://www.calfund.org/page.aspx?pid=1159    so I'm assuming they're tapping into this fund.  I can't get any information from anyone on where this housing is - so I'm assuming they'll tell me.  http://www.cspinc.org/ and http://ovc.ncjrs.gov/humantrafficking/traffickingmatrix.html

http://webapps.foundationcenter.org/rc/grants_ltr/index.php?resultpage=17&id=22 and http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/endtrafficking/funding-award-annoucements  and http://www.dailynews.com/general-news/20150505/la-county-supervisors-back-federal-grant-to-create-human-trafficking-task-force/1  and https://oag.ca.gov/human-trafficking/help  and https://jenesse.org/media/news/articles/Dept_of_Justice_Article.pdf  and http://www.la2050.org/site/assets/files/1765/my_la2050_report_final.pdf and http://district34.cssrc.us/content/california-department-housing-and-community-development-awards-grants-interval-house

Only I was told "oh we have a year waiting list for help".  Now wait a minute - you just announced you're doing outreach.  Why do that if you have a year waiting list?  Oh because we need to build the waiting list.  Why?  Because with a bigger list - we can get more money.  http://www.butlerfamilyfoundation.org/grants?field_giving_program_tid=All&field_grant_category_tid=All&field_grant_year_value%5Bvalue%5D=&title=&page=1&order=title&sort=asc  (Looking at all these grants that are offering money to work with trafficking victims - are you beginning to see why they're getting pretty desperate at finding those victims enough to possibly set up "fake support groups" to flush them out?)

This doesn't seem fair to me.  Go in and ask a victim if they want help.  Then when they say "yes" you say "ok here's a waiting list for a year".  Are you kidding me?

So I asked this woman - look I don't have housing and I don't believe in a safe house system anyway because the pimps just locate it and then target it.  So how about I come in and show your volunteers how we get housing immediately and bang names off that waiting list?

To which she said "oh no".  Huh?

"Well we need to build the list bigger so we can raise more money".  To which I then saw them put together a celebrity laden event where a plate was $50,000.  The cheapest plate to attend was $250.  So I asked them if I could get a free pass donated so one of our members could come and see how they put together an event like this - maybe it would help us learn how to fund raise.

We were denied.

So the founder of Sex Workers Anonymous can't even get a free seat at a sex trafficking luncheon.  Wow.  I need to get off the phone talking to real victims of trafficking who need help and I need to learn how to put together a $50,000 a plate luncheon to raise money by telling people I can't help these victims.

Or do I?  What are your thoughts?  Because frankly I'm getting tired of people comparing me to these groups who spend all of their time fund raising about how I don't have bells and whistles that they do because they have money and I don't.  So you tell me - because I can't do both.  I can't smooze and fund raise AND do the work that I do with this hotline and program for our members to be here for that second generation now who is calling me for help.

So you tell me.

Dear Concerned Parties:

First let me introduce myself. My name is Jody Williams. After a high profile arrest where I was dubbed the “High Tech Madam” in 1984 (clippings you can read at www.hightechmadam.com) – I was finally able to find help to leave what I had been lured into myself in 1985. While in the sex industry – people knew they could get help to get away from pimps and traffickers from me. Still wanting to help, but not wanting to go back to sex work to do so - in 1987, I founded the first 12 step program called “Prostitutes Anonymous”, the first hotline for those seeking help to leave sex work (trafficked or not), and stepped up to demand our legal system change to acknowledge that not all of us were “criminals” but some in fact were victims being forced to do what they were doing. Thus I am the founder of the modern day sex trafficking movement itself I would like to add here.

Before I started our program – I was friends with Margo St. James, the founder of COYOTE, which later transformed into the St. James Infirmary when she retired. This was a sex workers rights group who also believed sex work was a career choice – and that people shouldn't be forced or trafficked. Her group was set up to help the sex worker – not to help them leave. We both agreed women should not be hunted down and locked up like criminals either. But she couldn't form an “alternative to sentencing” until we could get the laws changed. After talking with the California governor who told us we'd “never see the day when prostitutes are not arrested – but we could at least see they didn't have to go to jail by forming a 12 step program like how NA does for the addict” - we decided to form PA.

Thus the modern day sex trafficking movement was born. We changed our name in 1995 to “Sex Workers Anonymous” because the internet was blocking people from finding us because of adult filters not recognizing the word “prostitute” - and also to acknowledge the very real fact that not all seeking help from us were people selling physical intercourse for money.

So we were the first people to put together an HIV/AIDS outreach into the sex industry, to demand condoms not be considered “evidence of a crime”, the first alternative sentencing and diversion program, the first training for counselors, social workers, etc. in how to work with us properly, as well the first residential programs, the first “safe houses”, and the first “rescue” operations. Since most of the children we were finding being forced into prostitution were having this happen at the hands of their parents and/or guardians – we started referring anyone under legal age to Children of the Night – which was the only program around in 1987 equipped to handle this type of child and problem.

The other people I'm writing you about are Tom Forman, Kevin Brown, Maxine Doogan, Domina Elle, D'lita Miller, the Cupcake Girls, Abeni, Hookers for Jesus, and a woman calling herself “Kamylla” online. To understand the players in this letter – let me briefly introduce them also.

TOM FORMAN:
He is the man who produced the show “8 Minutes”, as well as “Catfish”, “OC Jails”, “Intervention” and “Gigolo's” through Relativity Media.

Kevin Brown:
Founded “Side by Side Church” after having been an Orange County officer. He was the host of the show “8 Minutes” and supposed “rescuer”. He says in interviews he “found God” after he retired – but the church paperwork was registered in California in 1994. Interesting since sex trafficking wasn't federal recognized until 2000 with the Trafficking Act of 2000.

Maxine Doogan
She's a dominatrix that runs the Erotic Service Provider Legal Educational Research – a nonprofit based out of San Francisco that's also filing a lawsuit to have prostitution decriminalized again after a failed attempt in 2008. She's also a convicted pimp according to one interview about this. The Case number for that lawsuit is 15 CV 01007. Her EIN # is 27-2049888 for ESPLER.

Domina Elle
A dominatrix based out of Denver, Colorado. However, she has phones registered in Pennsylvania, a travel agency registered out of Kentucky and California, and various other locations. She is doing business under the legal name of “Shekinah Avraam” who actually died in 2007. There is a voter registration showing her birthdate as 1966 – but again the person who is the owner of that name was born years earlier according to the obituary. Supposedly the real “Shekinah” worked with Domina Elle according to her Linkedin profile. She has a website at www.dominaelle.com for her dungeon. I have a phone report I got from Intelius available if you'd like to see it listing some of her addresses across the United States, along with phone numbers and emails she's used also.

D'Lita Miller
In interviews she says she was a legal assistant who had no idea about sex trafficking until her daughter was trafficked in one interview – while in another she admits she had been a prostitute herself when she was younger. She was told by the police “there were no resources” so she set about to create a program called “Families Against Sex Trafficking”. She says she was a “consultant” whose input was “ignored” by the producers of “8 Minutes”. When I spoke to Ms. Miller about a week before she went onto CNN to do the segment “The Truth Behind “8 Minutes” with Jennifer Pozner, she told me that her biggest “frustration” was “not having any resources for the trafficking victims she works with”. I told her that was strange because there were a lot of resources available in California especially and I offered to show her these resources. She declined and then stopped returning my calls and email after I insisted there were resources available.

Cupcake Girls:
A program that opened a Las Vegas branch in 2012 according to news interviews. Their goal is to provide “help” to sex trafficking victims in Las Vegas. Recently, they appeared at the Nevada legislature in order to get a bill passed allowing those convicted of prostitution to have their records expunged by the claim that these women were “unable to find work” because of their criminal records. I've been placing prostitutes in jobs since 1996 when I relocated to Nevada, and I have a list of companies that will hire not only ex-prostitutes, but those with drug charges and even felonies. When I offered to give them a copy of this list to refer their clients to work – they declined. Clearly they're not interested in clearing these womens' records in order to find them work. This group is a front. I say that because I've also helped many a prostitute expunge their records, and also help them get work cards WITHOUT having to put down $5000 for an attorney. There is no reason for this bill other than because the legal brothels require that no one with a conviction for prostitution can be licensed AND the fact their paid lobbyist also happens to represent the Las Vegas Defense Attorney's.

Abeni:
A group in Orange County founded by Meg Munoz. Abeni is about “harm reduction” and believes in mixing sex trafficking victims with currently active sex workers according to interviews she's given. She is listed as a program utilized by the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. Out of absolutely nowhere, with me saying nothing to her to warrant this accusation – Meg started saying online that I was “stalking her” and that she was “afraid for her life”. She then started trying to find out where I lived so that I could be hauled off on a 5150 charge. Not a light thing considering what happened to Sandra Bland after she was taken into custody after her comments about law enforcement. I have screen shots of our exact conversation SHE initiated to prove I said nothing to her that would warrant either of her accusations against me. The woman is clearly trying to do this to try and “squash the competition” to what her program is offering sex workers which from what I can see isn't much.

Kamylla:
A woman who claims to be the only “non-American” woman filmed for the show “8 Minutes” who has now had multiple fund raisers given for her now online driven by Maxine Doogan and Domina Elle – two women who claim to be active sex workers. She is supposedly married, with multiple children under the age of 18 years old she's raising along with her also out of work husband who was portrayed as her pimp on the show supposedly. I say “supposedly” because I have not seen the episode.

SITUATION I'M CONCERNED ABOUT
About March of 2014, I received a call from a man claiming to be working with Kevin Brown. The story he gave me was this man had been a cop for 20 years, then after retiring he “found God”, and decided he wanted to go help the prostitutes he'd seen while on the beat. That he put together a program, and was now calling up prostitutes to a hotel room where he was then offering them “help”. That if they said “yes” he was taking them out to a compound in New Mexico he'd put together, getting them cleaned up, and off the streets. He said that “word was out” that they were doing this “sting” and now they couldn't get women to come to the hotel rooms and they wanted me to send them women to a hotel where they would then be offered help. Honestly – I thought this was a pimp calling me up at first or some cult. I mean he's “taking women out to some ranch in New Mexico”?

Now when I first started our program – it was not easy, not easy at all, to get these men and women to stop the “revolving door”. I mean we saw right off they'd put some time together, and then “relapse”. When we went to look for help from someone to show us how to stop this constant “relapse” - we found nothing. We found nothing because no one even understood how the sex industry worked back in the 1980's – let alone how to solve these problems. So truly we had to learn to invent the wheel about this. It took me YEARS to learn how to build a program that actually “worked” and this guy just sets his cap to it and suddenly he knows how to break this cycle? Plus what about the pimps that would come looking for these women? Nothing was jivving about this story. So I asked to see this with my own eyes – him, the survivors, the program, the house - everything.

The first thing I did was ask what types of jobs he was getting his “success stories” into. I got told that they were now being employed by the church to do these outreaches. I'm like “wait a minute – so you haven't actually got these women working and self-sufficient then if you're paying them?” To which he said yes. Again, it sounded like a cult to be honest or some guy with a fetish to be around hookers. So I asked about the screening. I know that you can't get a trafficking victim up to a hotel room without passing screening by their pimps. Then when the victim doesn't return – they're going to come looking. So I started asking how come they were not running into the same problems we do when we extract a sex trafficking victim – including the threats from local police, attorney's and private investigators.

When I asked how he was handling these threats – he just starts stuttering. I also didn't understand why the hotel sting. Why not just call them up or do street outreach? I mean we only use a “john sting” when we've found there is no way to get them away from the pimp other than when they're on an appointment. Otherwise, there's no point to this. This makes no sense to me at all – so I said that I wasn't going to give referrals to them unless I saw everything with my own eyes. I wanted to meet these so called “success stories”, I wanted to see this ranch, I wanted to see what type of program they were using, meet their people, etc. I also wanted to meet Kevin Brown. But when I asked to have these meetings and tours set up – he balked completely.

He then said “well don't you need help? If you send your callers to us we can help them.” To which I pointed out our system was working just fine and he could listen to some testimonials we have up at www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk. What I found strange was a group new to this work not asking questions of us who have been since 1987 and don't even know who we are. I told him frankly I questioned how when he put this program together when he didn't go online and at least talk to us about what our program does before starting his own. That's been a real red flag to me in the past that something is fishy. Samoly Mam is a good example. She's another one who didn't even bother to speak to me about our program, nor acknowledge we even existed – and she was a complete sham.
It just made no sense to me and that's why I said I wasn't going to give him any referrals until I met people and saw things with my own eyes. I didn't hear from him again and since he called me from a blocked number I couldn't get in touch with him again either.

Then in March of 2015, I received a phone call from Domina Elle's phone. She was gathering information on groups like ours to find out what services we offer. This was before the show “8 Minutes” had even aired. I told her what I tell people scouting for information – if she knows of someone who needs help they need to call us themselves to get more information.

On April 13, 2015, I got a call from a woman who called herself “Claudia Ortiz” at first. I knew it was a fake name because she said she was from Brazil, and also her call frankly sounded scripted. She insisted she was terrified if her story leaked out to the press she'd be deported – but I later learned she' talked to over 10 reporters before even calling me. People afraid of press don't call that many reporters. After telling me her story about the series being faked, and her being paid $200 to act like she was a prostitute, and her husband acting as her pimp on the show – she then said she really wanted help to quit sex work. All while not asking me anything about how to quit being she'd called SWA. Yes I have a tape recording of that call she gave me permission to publish.

But she said the producers wouldn't help her. This made no sense to me because if the show was being staged – then why would she think they'd help her? If they had a program – they wouldn't be hiring actors. But she also told me she was going to be evicted in two days, and she had no car, no money, and supposedly an open prostitution case and an open immigration case. She also said she was terrified they were going to air this show without her face blurred and this would affect her children's safety. She asked me for help – and I told her truthfully I had her “covered”.

First of all, I've been a paralegal for 29 years now. All of our members practically come in with evictions, or divorces, or restraining orders and no one can afford an attorney. So I told her I'd fill her out a “stay” for her eviction and get that filed in the morning. (Which by the way is why I think the Cupcake Girls are attacking and undermining our program – their lobbyist is also paid by defense lawyers who are not happy that as a paralegal I'm helping out women who can't afford to hire an attorney. However, what these attorney's don't understand is these women can't afford even the filing fees when I help them – let alone to pay for legal counsel. I spent 15 years being mentored by the best attorney's in Los Angeles and do know what I'm doing as far as helping members fill out forms.)

I also have a member of SWA in Houston who owns a call center. He could hire her and her husband on the spot. Since it's a call job – they can work from home and don't need a car. As for her being in the USA – what she told me sounded like she would be a good “expert witness” in the current lawsuit that Backpage has going all over the country. I figured we'd talk to them and as long as she's being used as an expert witness – then she can maintain her visa to stay in this country and this is not a job where she's replacing an American. All requirements for her to stay in this country on a work visa.

I further felt we could file a class action against Relativity on behalf of all of the women on the show asking for a million dollars because their constitutional rights were violated based on what she's telling me. Asking someone to pretend to be a “criminal” in reality was already something that the cast of “Gigolo's” went through. When being asked to be filmed committing a criminal act of prostitution while that film is labeled as “reality” is a form of entrapment and thus also violates their 5th amendment rights.

Something neither cast of “Gigolo's” nor “8 Minutes” were advised of before filming. They resolved that on Gigolo's by having the cast labeled as actors – NOT REALITY.

So not only did I feel we could sue them for violating these people's rights not to incriminate themselves – but I also felt the show was a defamation of both real victims and real sex workers separately who we could also name as plaintiffs. Why? If you watched the show they portrayed what I believe to be sex workers. Those who advertise on Backpage for sexual services for money – and if they wanted to go into some program for help they could. The show called these women “victims” over 10 times within five minutes. They said they were “mentally ill” and “junkies” and made it appear they all could not care for their own children. So they “defamed” sex workers.

As for victims of trafficking – they defamed them by making it appear that they CAN just make a choice in “8 Minutes” to simply stop what they're doing by choice. The whole definition of a victim is that THEY CAN'T LEAVE AND THERE IS NO CHOICE. Which was not what was portrayed on this show that was again STAGED. By staging this show the producers DELIBERATELY DEFAMED BOTH sex workers AND sex trafficking victims in one shot.

As for blurring Kamylla's face – we could get an injunction against that show airing based on it endangering her safety and her children's. But I didn't have a lot of time since it was airing in two days. This isn't the first time I've dealt with this. Mind you I've been through this when Annie Lobert was doing her so called “reality show” on Bravo that I got yanked after one episode because it was also a complete sham. Why? Because people had been donating over a million dollars to Pastor Benny Perez who basically filed bankruptcy and there was no house – and I got left being the one to provide the services to the prostitutes they'd promised help to. Maybe there is a house now in Vegas – but there wasn't one back in 2010 when Annie was claiming that such a house had opened already falsely.

I also helped to get “Gigolo's” pulled off the air until they could resolve their legal issues. They were also claiming to portray “real” male escorts and the reality of that world – well if that's the case then they were filming a crime. Metro then got involved because it was appearing they were filming a crime in process. The show then had to restructure itself before it could continue airing by admitting everyone was an actor on the show – even the clients – and that everything was staged.

Why was that important to me? Because Heidi Fleiss and Dennis Hof were using that show to raise millions out of investors who were led to believe that there's enough women buying men to sustain a male brothel for women when the reality is – well it's been shown – there aren't enough women who would patronize a male to female brothel. I also was the one who had to tell a lot of male hookers who relocated to Nevada thinking they'd be able to be like the men on the show - it was hype and then I had to help them get on their feet when they realized they weren't going to be another “Gigolo” . Once again, they got the money and I got the tab.

Which was exactly what was happening with “8 Minutes”. When it started airing I'm the one answering the phone now every night until 4:00 in the morning – while they're getting the donations, the grant money, the fame, etc. I'm the one talking people out of staging hotel stings once the show aired. I'm the one people are calling for help when they are trying to find Kevin Brown and not finding him. So now I had proof that show was in fact “staged” - I was going to go public with that information. I had a social obligation to do so because people were donating money thinking that what Kevin Brown was doing was “real”.

I was also very concerned about public safety what with people thinking this “sting” idea was actually a good idea. Someone was going to get hurt if it continued.

When I started to come forward with the fact the show had been staged – I'm suddenly having people coming out of nowhere insisting this “Claudia” now “Kamylla” might be deported if we release this information. Which was ridiculous. First of all, if she was going to be deported she would have been already when they arrested her. Second, if they tried to deport her while we were suing them then it would be clearly retaliation. I highly doubted they'd even attempt this sort of thing for fear of the bad press. Third, if they did try to deport her we could make a motion that we needed her in the states to testify in the Backpage lawsuit I'm sure we could have gotten her on as an expert witness about how the things being said about them are in fact “staged” because that's what she saw them doing during the taping of the show – they “staged” it to appear Backpage was where these women were coming from.

It was during this time I learned many of the people who were telling me “not” to do this were fake profiles – or “catfish” if you will. Which is why I warn you this is a deep rabbit hole with all the fake people, fake programs, fake churches, etc. involved in this whole situation. So I released a statement that the show was faked and did so knowing that “Claudia” was not her real name. Because this statement did not contain this woman's “real name” so no one's identity was violated plus it was very clear she wanted this press or she wouldn't have talked to all those reporters was my thinking. Now I understand yes she wanted the press – but wanted the press to NOT be about the show being staged.

I then served upon Relativity Media a notice that I was intending to file a lawsuit against them for defamation, and to get an injunction against them based on the threat to Claudia's safety if they showed her episode without blurring her face. I placed a copy of this notice on the A&E page about the show, and also all over social media. I thought it important to let people know there was no “program” in reality because when I went on the A&E page – I found Mercedes Reese, Greg Reese's wife, claiming that she was running a program in Orange County and that people could reach out to her for help.

Only based on my conversation with her – there was no program she was offering and certainly not one that I saw was effective at helping either sex trafficking victims or sex workers wanting to leave the industry to find help. Now they could be using a group to pump prostitutes for information like Slate wrote about how prevalent “informants” are in Orange County and from what the prostitutes were telling me – but not a real “program” that was helping them to leave sex work. What I was seeing was a combination of intelligence gathering, evangelism and fraudulent fund raising if anything (straight out of the Samoly Mam handbook) – but no actual program she was offering anyone.

If you wonder what I mean by that – let me ask you this simple question – if you were to want to help an alcoholic to get sober, or to get sober yourself, while you might use a church to help, and even go into a treatment program – wouldn't you even think of attempting this without at least consulting AA?
These people knew about us. Kevin Brown knew about us a year before. Domina Elle knew about us in March. This woman, Claudia, knew about me to call on April 13th for some reason. Yet despite knowing that we existed, and knowing that we've been effective with our members – they're not even asking us anything about our program, how it works – no questions were coming from them to us. So it's not about helping sex workers or trafficking victims then is it?

I'm sure that if Mercedes and Greg Reese had decided to start Safe Passage to help prostitutes it crossed their mind to go online and see if any existing programs were already operating which of course we can be found in two clicks off Google. I've answered our mail, email and hotline since 1987 and no one had contacted me for any information before setting up these so called “programs” so yes I am going to say they weren't set up with the recovery of these men and women in mind. Not just my program either were they ignoring – but also Children of the Night, Covenant House, CASTLA, Dream Center, Mary Magdalene Project, and so on. Our hotline lists all kinds of programs that they hadn't accessed because no one had called me to find (1) what programs already existed, and (2) how did we work?

So why are they doing this then if not having any intent to actually outreach someone into a program that works to help them exit and recover from sex work then? Good question. The next morning after this call from Claudia/Kamylla – my phone rings off the hook from an attorney in New Jersey and another in Houston both claiming she's their client. Clearly she has legal representation. I know that once you are an official “client” of an attorney – they can't just stop representing you if you run out of money. In fact, a judge can refuse to allow them to stop representing you over simply a lack of money.

So her call was a sham like I suspected. Which is why I had no problem going forward with the statement the whole show was a sham. Even Polaris had stepped up saying they had NOT given them permission to use their hotline even in connection with the show. So if they're not working with me, and not working with Polaris – then what is going on? But I'd also seen fund raisers going on in connection with “8 Minutes” so I had a moral obligation to those donors to let them know something.

But I was worried that others who had been promised their faces would be blurred were going to have shows airing that didn't – and their children might then be in danger. People only know what they hear – not the retractions. Fearing for this, and after being told by five reporters they would not print anything about this for fear they'd be fired – I decided to announce the injunction I could file in the Nevada court at the Las Vegas city council meeting being held the next day. I also knew some news reporters I knew would me on air to announce the filing of an injunction against the show.

However, I'm out of town getting my daughter medical care and can't afford a hotel. I'd been hearing about this group the “Cupcake Girls” so I wrote them about how women could be in danger of their faces being shown on air as “prostitutes” . I asked if they knew someone who could let me take a nap before driving back home. Their response was to tell me to go fly a kite, and then block me. I'd been trying for months prior to get information from them as to what they do for our hotline to no avail – and then this.

It honestly made no sense as to why they're out there doing all this PR about how much not only do they want to help the sex workers with their program, Cupcake Girls, but also made no sense from a Christian perspective why they're refusing to meet with me. Even more so in light of the fact I'm an ordained Christian minister and survivor as to why they're refusing to meet with me.

Which is when I suspected they were in fact a “front” for something else so I started nosing around. Sure enough, the Cupcake Girls have a paid lobbyist named Kerrie Kramer working for them. Now Kerrie also represents – wait drum roll now please – Las Vegas Defense Lawyers number one. Number two is the Nevada Bus & Limo Association, and number three Live Nation Entertainment. Now Live Nation Entertainment, based out of Los Angeles, also happens to produce concerts, and they're also a Wall Street traded company. Second drum roll please - - - because Live Nation Entertainment also happens to be producing Snoop Dogg's tour currently. This makes more sense when you review the website, and campaign, I have up at www.boycottsnoop.com

Now it's making much more sense why these people are bringing cupcakes to strippers, offering them make-overs, and facials, and saying it's their “Christian outreach”. Baloney. I knew this was a sham the minute I heard that these women can't find work other than stripping when they appeared at the legislature. I've been placing strippers, prostitutes, and porn stars in great paying jobs outside the sex industry since 1996 in Nevada. I also had the Cupcake Girls refuse this list.

They clearly aren't doing this for the strippers as they claim. Not when you realize that Joy Hoover, their founder, also owns a salon in Las Vegas. THIS is why she goes into the strip clubs offering free make-overs. Which is fine frankly if that's how you want to grab some customers for your salon. But DON'T pretend this is a ministry to “HELP” them, all while bashing a group that's been in Las Vegas since 1996 ACTUALLY HELPING THEM.

The reason they refused the list, and also why they're against what we're doing is further understood when you realize their PAID lobbyist also represents defense lawyers of Las Vegas and Live Nation Entertainment. Defense lawyers who don't want to see a prostitute not needing a lawyer to expunge her records when all they've had to do in the past is get our assistance. This is a direct attack upon the fact we've been able to get prostitutes out of jail time through alternative sentencing in our program, as well as we've been able to get the work cards, jobs, and record expungement WITHOUT having to put up $5000 retainers to defense lawyers.

You also can not convince me their attacks upon our program are not connected with the fact that Live Nation Entertainment is producing two concerts coming up with Snoop Dogg – who I started a boycott movement against in 2013 when “Turbo” was first released by Disney. I also set up a website about the boycott at www.boycottsnoop.com Why? Because sex trafficking victims are not able to get help, nor able to prosecute their traffickers when they're under Snoop's umbrella of protection. Since he started the Youth Football League – pimps are now able to get onto high schools they previously were unable to get access to because they didn't attend these schools. The cheerleaders are not being educated about sex trafficking – nor do they have anywhere to go if they are targeted. The boys are being shown a confessed pimp as a role model – yet Snoop does nothing to educate them about the dangers of sex trafficking or even of becoming pimps like Jeremy Greene who started out at 16 years of age.

WHAT HAPPENED
The minute I announced the show was staged – it was like a very well organized battle plan went into action. The page was taken down from the A&E site and Buzzfeed noted it was down four hours after I'd placed a copy of the legal notice on that page. Mind you when shows are canceled – it is not normal to take down their page and the videos by the way. Go online and you can still watch canceled shows. It's so unusual that Buzzfeed posted an article about it.

So I sent the reporter, Ariane Grange, a copy of the notice I'd put on the page and told her this notice was why I felt the page was taken down. Then instead of writing anything about this notice, my email to her, etc. - she acts like she's not aware of this at all – and instead starts quotes Maxine Doogan where she proclaims she's the reason why the show was canceled. She had done no “due diligence” to verify anything about this woman's story before asking people to donate. Her omission about the information I'd given her outright suggests fraud and manipulation – because a lie by omission is still a lie.

But Maxine, who had been protesting them for weeks to no avail – releases a photo claiming victory on her part for getting the show canceled. Okay who cares I think. She wants credit – fine. But I find that the very reporters who are writing that she's responsible for this victory – are not writing anything about the legal notice I'd posted, nor about the fact we had a similar problem with the Annie show, or the Gigolo show, about the fact the producers asked people to portray a crime in action they filmed and called it “real” which is a form of entrapment, nor even mentioning anything about even talking to me.

Mary O'Hara for example had talked to me, and even acknowledged that she hadn't seen a contract out of Kamylla and that her story sounded “fake” - yet now I'm seeing a fund raiser for her that Mary's asking people to go donate to? Now that's really fishy. Why would she admit to me her story sounded “fake” and she's not even sure the woman was even on the show – and then ask people to go donate to her? Why is she printing articles that act like she's never even spoke to me or heard about me? Why is the issue of entrapment not discussed despite the fact it was discussed when “Gigolo's” went through the same exact issue with their filming from the same production company?

As I see this fund raiser going up that Domina Elle set up at www.sexworkersolidarity.com – I note the domain was registered a year ago. Strangely the very week filming started. Okay she says she “had it laying around”. But then she claims that I had done something to trash it and they had to move it to another site. I had not. Wondering why she's lying – I go onto this fund raiser to see that she's also asking people to support a bill forcing homeless shelters to take in sex trafficking victims. There's a reason first of all that they don't. A reason why I had been saying since 1987 that our system needed to change the way it was helping sex trafficking victims because shelters across the country weren't secure enough to handle when these pimps show up in the middle of the night bearing guns.

But what I'm trying to figure out is why is this woman trying to champion a law like this? Plus doing it in combination with a fund raiser for this Kamylla as she's now being called? I ask if this woman is a lobbyist – and no she's not. So they take down the information when they move this fund raiser yet again – again falsely telling everyone that it's because of me that they're moving it. I'm also concerned because there are multiple lawsuits ongoing with respect to not only Backpage right now in different states – but also with respect to Maxine's lawsuit. Isn't this mass propaganda these women are engaging in without being lobbyists' also a form of “jury tampering”?

I served Domina Elle with a notice that I would file a defamation lawsuit if she did not take down these lies about me that she was posting. Her response was to yes take them down. However, the same exact postings, wording and even cartoon that she'd made of me then just pops up under a completely other, and fake, name. When I served that person with the notice – it's taken down – but then pops up under another name of a real person. I do it a fourth time and the same thing happens. I've checked the law and this makes what she's doing now “conspiracy” because more than one person now is engaging not only in this defamation, but now we're reached the point of “tortious economic interference”.

This tells me she knows what she's doing is illegal – but she's going to just keep doing it like a wolf pack until I'm too exhausted to fight. Why lie about me? I'm not understanding any of this. Then something clicks that scares me. My mother had been charged with pimping me based on a photo of me handing her a $20 bill for a bucket of KFC chicken. The hotel clerk and the cab driver were also arrested with me under pimping charges. I've seen cab drivers, nail ladies, and even hotel clerks arrested before for pimping. They charged Heidi Fleiss' parents with it at first, and even tried to go after Jeane Palfrey's mother. The law is very clear that if you take so much as $1.00 from a “prostitute” - then you're guilty of pimping. You give a phone number to a prostitute – and that's “pandering”. 

The law is very clear here and this is why I don't even pass the basket at SWA meetings.
Yet here they are asking KNOWN PROSTITUTES to donate to Kamylla who has no legitimate means of support to show where her money is coming from other than sex work or this fund raiser that's now money donated from prostitutes. I become greatly concerned that if she accepts this money – she could be charged with pimping as well as possibly money laundering. Further, that if without a job she gives even $1.00 of this to her husband then HE could be charged with pimping. That upon receipt of this money, if they both are charged with pimping, and even possibly money laundering, then they won't get bail because they're not American, and their children could placed in with foster care.

So I start asking Maxine and Domina Elle “what precautions are you taking about this?” to which the roar increases where they now want to make sure no one is talking to me. This is when they start trying to target our friends and followers on social media – only I went through this dance in 2013. For that reason I already have told our family, friends, supporters, members NOT to have me added anywhere, not to mention my name, not to have me listed anywhere so that someone can locate them using my name and then target them. But some had recently come in through SWOP and had mentioned my name in defense of me – and sure enough the threats started coming to them “don't talk to Jody or you'll be shunned by everyone”. Which is why I say this has gone beyond “defamation” and even “conspiracy” but now we're reaching the point of “tortious economic interference” in that they are now not only trying to do what I do, but they're now telling other people they can't even speak to me.

It's now reached the point of “economic interference” when they're now going to groups that we belong to that we do outreach in for those who need our help – and they've forced the moderators to take our name off the list. The moderators have told me privately they don't “want to – but were forced to”. Again, since they're working in a pack – this also makes it a conspiracy. Since it's also about conning people out of money that's now reached well over $10,000 - we're looking at a very serious issue here.

Only what did I do? I offered Kamylla help her with her legal issues, get her a job, help her sue the producers, help her stay in the country and suddenly I'm the “bad guy”? It's making no sense at all. To drive me off the internet – these people started attacking our hotline. Text bombing my phone at all hours to try and get me to shut off the phone. Setting up websites at www.sexworkersanonymous.org telling people I'm a “predator” and to not call or trust us that they tell me won't come down until OUR website comes down. I mean what is it about us that is making these people so nervous? When we refused to cave – they started up with the phony calls to our hotline. When they couldn't trip me up into saying anything messed up – they get even angrier and more lies start spreading about us online.

I start getting calls from other members of groups like SWOP, Red Umbrella and Desiree Alliance we've helped over the years when they got arrested, and when they exited the sex industry. But now even out of the industry they still believe the laws need to be changed so they belong to both groups. They start telling me that these people are now trying to drive them out of these groups simply based upon being my friend, or a member of SWA. Again this makes absolutely no sense – but it is familiar.

I went through an almost identical scenario when Samoly Mam and Ben Hilliar were out in the anti-trafficking field trying to convince people they were real. Their people didn't want anyone around to denounce them anyone would listen to. Which is why I say I was “prepared” this time by not having anyone listing us on their social media – we'd already gone through this same exact type of smear campaign and witch hunt in 2013 when some people were trying to pass off phony sex trafficking survivors and rescue groups back then. Back then I'd been advised this was conspiracy, fraud, rackeeteering, money laundering, defamation and economic interference, as well as “cyber stalking” - but I didn't document what was happening when it was being done by Samoly Mam and her people. However, this time I was prepared and have. The names have changed – but the game is still the same.

Having those red flags go up – I start smelling someone's scamming money. Samoly Mam had gathered millions of dollars during her run before she got exposed. By running me out of the anti-trafficking groups I wasn't able to warn people about her before millions of dollars was scammed. So I start looking – and sure enough I see that Orange County (where Kevin Brown and Greg Reese is) has received $1,200,000 in grant money to “fight sex trafficking”.

A little more digging and I see that Orange County has also received $400,000 to provide housing for sex trafficking victims. Funny thing is I'd written the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force many times since they formed offering our services to their victims – only to never get so much as a return phone call from them. But I don't see Kevin Brown or Safe Passage listed on their directory.

Doing some homework on D'Lita Miller, who is claiming to be a “consultant” to the show, I find her name connected with very large sums of money, about $3,500,000 for victims, and another $1,500,000 for “outreach” in Long Beach. Only when I'm doing homework on her programs – I'm again finding nothing but smoke and mirrors. When I spoke to her and she told me there was “no resources” for these victims she says she's working with – after being involved with all this money being granted isn't there some obligation for her to at least find out from me what resources are available?

What I did found confused me even more. I found a big article in the Los Angeles Times, and the OC Register about the “outreach” that Kevin Brown and Greg Reese had been doing before the show “8 Minutes” had started recording. One article talked about how they were out “knocking on doors” and how they're trying to do “outreach to a 17 year old” only what concerns me now is why? Why are they out there trying to talk to a 17 year old minor female about what we now know is a non-existent program? If they were referring this girl to Children of the Night, or Covenant House – then I'd understand what they're doing. But if there's no program, and the show was staged, then why are they out there trying to track down a 17 year old prostitute if not to simply show off for the reporters? But then we go back to the issue that a lot of money was given to help these women. Maybe the 17 year old prostitute doesn't exist. But the women are telling stories identical to Kamylla's in that they aren't receiving anything. This is all very confusing and why I'm writing all of you to help sort this all out.

As for “Cupcake Girls' – this is a group that is out fund raising for this woman that any attempts I've made to document her story is real is coming up short. I've asked around and no one else has any documentation. Now I donated money to her fund raiser myself which means I have some right to have my questions answered as to the validity of her story. Otherwise, now I'm a victim of a scam. But when I asked the Cupcake Girls for some kind of proof they'd verified this woman's story after having donated to the fund raiser – I then got ignored. As a 501c3 I find this completely out of line.

Especially with how they're using their nonprofit status in a very unethical manner. After learning of this woman through me – they cut me off from her, threaten her she won't get her $5000 and she'll be deported supposedly if she speaks to me again - and then went after her to create a fund raiser that raised their public profile. They are not supposed to be a political organization, and have done extensive public relations in the past stating they are not a political organization. Yet they capitalized on this press to go to the Nevada legislature to have a Bill created asking to expunge records for prostitutes on the claim that these women “can't find work” because of those records.
I've been placing men and women through now only Sex Workers Anonymous, but also Narcotics Anonymous, in Nevada since 1996 and I have NOT found a criminal record for trespassing, solicitation, or even prostitution to hinder their ability to find work in any way other than cashier jobs, or jobs handling money. Even then, I've been able to help them apply for a work permit, or speak to their employer, and we've found it not to be a problem. I have a list of companies who will hire someone with not only a prostitution charge, but also drug charges, and even felonies. I offered this list to the Cupcake Girls and it was refused.

This to me tells me they are doing a disservice to these women. Especially when I'm getting phone calls like I did on August 11, 2015, from a woman who says when she asked them for help to exit the sex industry they referred her to the local homeless shelter only and blew her off. The woman turned out to just be very stressed out from her PTSD from being in prostitution. When I went with her to DMV – we had no problem obtaining her ID card which then allowed her to start seeking work so she wasn't forced to prostitute to support herself.

Which is what concerns me deeply about this. This woman had gone to Hookers for Jesus, and to Cupcake Girls, who are raising large sums of money on the spirit of the promise to their donors that they are helping women to leave prostitution. This woman who I'll call Sally went to both of these programs first asking for help. She couldn't get legit work because she couldn't get a valid ID card from DMV because she wasn't born here in the USA, and she was adopted. With an ID card, she also couldn't apply for social services. She reports they wouldn't even give her food at the food bank without an ID card. Without being able to find work, nor social services – she was forced to prostitute to care for herself. After coming to them with this problem – she says they both refused to help her.

Well I take that back. Hookers for Jesus offered to put her in a six month residential program, and the Cupcake Girls she says offered her a make-over inside of a strip club. Neither of these things were what she needed. However, upon rejecting her request for help to get her ID so she could find work – she was again forced to prostitute. In my mind, this makes them an accomplice to crime – and it also violates the spirit of the money that was donated and/or granted to these nonprofits when they are not EITHER doing what women like her need OR referring them to our program where WE CAN.

Now luckily some people like Sally go online, and keep looking. Upon continuing to look for help – they find us and then are helped. However, I've also known many a story where a woman has felt completely lost, hopeless, and outcast when refused help at groups like these – and they've gone home to kill themselves. I've then had long talks with their mothers who had to bury their babies about how they killed themselves because of knocking on door after door after door and getting no help.

It's one thing not to offer them the help. It's another to actively deny we exist, refuse to refer them to us, as well as that we're having to do the work while they're the ones getting all the grant money and press. Frankly, I don't have the time to do the press they do BECAUSE I'M BUSY HELPING THE SALLY'S OUT THERE. This woman called me at 4:00 a.m. After spending hours talking to her on the phone, I wasn't able to wake up until 3:00 in the afternoon the next day. I then got up and got on the phone with DMV to find out what paperwork we needed to get her ID. Then the next day we spent literally eight hours at DMV obtaining her ID card. I had to pick her up in my car, take her to DMV, and then take her home again all on my own dime. Work I would like to add I WOULDN'T BE HAVING TO DO IF EITHER OF THESE GROUPS HAD DONE IT FOR HER.

Which again is fine – but then when I try and go online to raise any type of support for the work we're doing to cover my expenses in having to help women like her – I'm finding myself either blocked out of access to do this, or I'm having people telling me they're being threatened about being fired if they speak to us, their grant money messed with if they speak to us, social shunning if they speak to us, AND reporters telling me they'll also be drummed out of the industry if they give US the SAME PRESS THEY'RE GIVING THEM.

After looking at who the paid lobbyist, Kerrie Kramer, represents then these attacks make much more sense now. Including how it all connects right back to the Los Angeles based Relativity Media as well.

So something has to give here. Which is why I'm in the process of filing civil lawsuits against these people. In the meantime, I'm writing your offices to see what you can do to investigate for possible criminal charges for one. For another, I'd like the IRS to review whether or not these groups are abusing their 501c3 privileges granted by your offices.

I also think the grant sources need to know about what's being done with their money in reality. If you will note this fact – each one of these groups that have been trying to chase us out of business (if you call what we do “business”) is connected by either a large grant, or a large financial interest. Therefore this is “economic interference” and “conspiracy”. As well I'd like your offices to also investigate into whether or not these activities constitute fraud or not. I also don't think defense lawyers and corporations, as well as Snoop's guard dogs, should be disguising their agenda under the Cupcake Girls skirts or Domina Elle's leathers either.

I've attached some documentation with this letter to help you review these issues. If I'm missing something you need, I have all kinds of screen shots that I've taken to document their activities, including the receipts to show that I've donated to these fund raisers, as well as the emails between the parties and myself too numerous to include in this already long letter.

Thank you very much for your time and attention in this matter.

Sincerely,

Jody Williams
