Cops, Condoms and Handcuffs: How the Bush Administration Spends Taxpayer Dollars
Arresting Prostitutes Under the Guise of Fighting Terrorism

May 6th, 8 PM Roxie Cinema, San Francisco

This presentation summarizes recent cases against women who have been targeted by our state and federal governments. Jeanette Maier's case is familiar to the American public after a TV Movie starring Ellen Burstyn. "This is a movie in which the operators of a whorehouse are the good guys and the villains are the FBI, who -- according to the film -- waste precious time and the taxpayers' money trying to close the joint down." writes By Tom Shales of the Washington Post. Norma Jean Almodovar was set up by the LAPD after word got out that this former police officer-turned-whore was writing a 'sex and corruption' expose about her fellow police officers. Robyn Few was a medical marijuana activist who arroused the ire of the Feds when they were frustrated in their efforts to target the medical marijuana community. From Keystone Cops to conspiracy theories, these stories and videos will reveal sordid corruption, bizarre misconduct and general waste of your taxpayer dollars!
