Special Hell...

Wow. Just ... Wow.

School board member convicted of running prostitution ring
MORENO VALLEY, Calif. – A Southern California school board member has been convicted of pimping, pandering and insurance fraud.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports 42-year-old Mike Rios was taken into custody after being convicted Friday.

Rios was accused of trying to get women and girls to work for him as prostitutes while he was sitting on the Moreno Valley School Board. Prosecutors say he told at least one woman he was a school board official and asked if she needed a job.

In a perfect world, he would be released from custody with no jail time. However, there would also be a stipulation for immunity for the fathers of the girls he propositioned. Guy sounds like a real piece of work - I'd be real curious to know if he ran for school board so he could interact with the young ladies.

But really? Using your position on the school board to entice women to work for you? Even if - as he claims - it was just exotic dancing, that's sleazy as hell. Add in that there was the illegal element of prostitution and it's plain disgusting.

Then again, at least we have one elected official who's open about screwing us...

That is all.

You're too hard on him.

He wasn't screwing us, he was trying to get us laid.

I am very conservative on the issue of prostitution - I believe there should be as little government interference as reasonable. I believe the trade in sex (between consenting adults) should not be over-regulated and should not be a criminal offense when conducted outright as selling sex. I think that anyone who really sees this as a truly conservative issue (as opposed to a law and order issue) should agree with me. After all, it was one of the first professions and I am all for those who want to conduct profitable businesses.

Of course, in today’s world, I think there should be some regulation such as a requirement for monthly health examinations and cessation of business if there is a health problem (with super high fines and imprisonment for those who disregard the exams and spread a disease) but that is about it. After all it is a profession with a happy ending so long as no illnesses are spread. Is it moral or ethical - that depends on your definition of morality or ethics and thus should be left up to the individual. I believe the same about recreational drug use. Bear in mind, laws against recreational drug use (at least in the USA) were passed by leftists and I would bet so too were the original laws against prostitution.
