LETTER TO LAURA ALBERT AKA JT LEROY

Dear Laura - I saw the film about your hoaxing of the public about who the real author was of our stories just now.  I want to thank you for coming clean about everything because of two major points important to me.

First of all, you were clearly right in that people would NOT have responded to you as they did had you appeared as "you" being an overweight female in the USA.  Your story clearly illustrates had you been upfront with people about your outward appearance - no you would not have had the success and exposure you did.  I know this to be true because I'm now in the same shoes as you are after having suffered a stroke.  I was very ill for some time and gained a lot of weight, lost most of my teeth, and physically I look a fright!

Which is why this has given rise to MANY "faux" sex trafficking survivors to be now cast by Central Casting such as Samoly Mam.  I wasn't thin and attractive so people with an agenda to sell went out and found their "poster girl" in someone like her who was photogenic.

However, it wasn't REAL.  Let me explain why this is important to me Laura.  Prior to 1987 - the world didn't believe sex trafficking was in fact "real".  They put it on the shelf with urban myths and UFO abductees.  The public had the same response to someone saying they were being sex trafficked as they do today with someone saying aliens abducted them!

Here was my challenge Laura - how do you convince the world that it is in fact real?  I believed the only way to do that was to get the voices of REAL survivors out there to the public.  I knew if people heard the "ring of truth" coming out of people's mouths about this being real - then we'd in fact be able to obtain federal recognition.

Which was why it was important.  Our country right now has no exit system to help people claiming to be abducted by aliens to find help with their PTSD and be able to put their lives together after having stopped the aliens.  It doesn't exist because it doesn't exist.  So for me to get this country to put together programs to help sex trafficking victims - I had to first convince America that it was in fact real.

So from 1987 until the year 2000 when the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed which gave domestic sex trafficking a voice - that's what I did.  I went onto TV, radio, public stages, cable TV and anything and everything I could get booked on and talked.  I talked and I brought on other survivors and we looked right into the camera and right into people's eyes - and we told our story.

It worked.  The problem was however is we're not warm fuzzy puppies people want to write out a check to donate to helping us.  We're not "sympathetic" in other words.  It's a long story about what exactly went into "hijacking" the movement I started out from under me - but what's happened is about 1000 "fake" survivors have now been not only bombarding the media - but further using these fake stories to get people to write fat checks for fake programs.

Here's the problem now however -so many people have now heard the "fake" stories that people are completely confusing what sex trafficking is.  I believe that's been the result of a deliberate attempt by our government to make sure the public isn't aware of what real sex trafficking looks like in this country as differentiated by people with pimps.

A pimp is in an abusive relationship with their victims.  However, in actual sex trafficking operations there is always an element of corruption.  If you google names like Joohoon David Lee - you'll see what I mean.  This man was Homeland Security, ICE and also heading the trafficking task forces in CA and NV before I managed to get enough people to believe me to get him arrested finally.

The "fake" media has people believing that sex trafficking isn't some guy with a Homeland Security badge flying victims into this country and walking them right past security into the illegal brothel where they're then sold like cattle.   Nor that he was falsely accusing an innocent family to make it appear he was "fighting sex trafficking" while in reality keeping everyone as far away from the real trafficking as possible using this fake media with fake victims.

So now everyone is looking on commercial air flights for what appears to be their "concept" of a victim - only it's not real.  Thus allowing the REAL victims to be walking around right past everyone in broad daylight because they haven't been trained what it  REALLY looks like.

Listen to Ashton Kutcher's plea for money recently with the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.  He was describing a child in another country and then creating an image in American minds that trafficking looks like that in the USA.  Only it doesn't look like that in the states - and people like myself and members of www.sexworkersanonymous.com who want to talk about what it REALLY looks like are being completely silenced.

So now I have a new challenge.  Now we have federal recognition that allows victims of sex trafficking to be treated like victims and not criminals.  However, the real traffickers in this country have now so manipulated the media that they have everyone chasing after their tails and wouldn't know what real sex trafficking is in the USA if it went up and bit  them.  In fact, I've now spent YEARS trying to tell the authorities about real trafficking operations who just simply don't believe me.  It's taking more years and more work just to get them to listen now - and when they do they then don't know how to even respond.

Joohoon David Lee for example was arrested and charged with bribery - but not sex trafficking.  Why?  Because there are no laws on the books allowing someone who trafficked another person while working for our government to be prosecuted.  Their immune.  So the best that could be done was to charge him with bribery.  He's right back now driving a limo - and driving trafficking victims around in that limo.

So how am I going to get laws on the books about what REAL sex trafficking is in this country which in most cases DOES involve someone who is immune from prosecution?  Literally these "fake" victims, fake survivors, fake programs, etc. - have so brainwashed our country into these false images that I'm not sure how to pull this train around.

It helps when the fakes come "clean" as you did.  For years when I'd talk to people - they'd think your stories about "lot lizards" was reality.  Now you confessing it wasn't real does allow me the opening of a door to start explaining to the American public what REAL "lot lizards" are like so we can get them the proper help they need.

Because that's just it Laura - there are real "lot lizards" out there who have kids and are struggling just to keep a roof over their kid's heads and they need programs to help them that are designed for them.  Because right now in the USA the number of what I call "third generation" victims is staggering.  So many pimps have had babies with their victims that now are teenagers and the pimps are now pimping them - it's not even funny.  The boys are usually trained to be pimps and dealers while the girls are trained to be prostitutes, strippers, porn performers, etc.

The problem is that REAL survivors aren't like you.  They CAN'T get on the phone and talk to movie producers, musicians, artists, etc., about their ordeals for hours and hours because it's too hard on us to remember that stuff.   Most stuff that stuff down so hard they can't hardly talk about it without triggering a whole breakdown.

I have a real dilemma here.  What I do know by watching this film about you is that you know how to get people in the media to talk to you.  That you clearly know how to do.

My dilemma however is that the  REALITY of this situation is 180 degrees opposite of the images you convey and your demeanor.  Our real victims have had to defend themselves for so long and so alone that many of them are quite aggressive, prickly, and some are just downright mean.  They isolate.  They're not friendly.  They shut down and don't talk.

So what do we do to start getting the REAL information out there so REAL victims can get some HELP?  That's the million dollar question I'm trying to solve right now because in order to get real help to real victims we have to first get the public to now see what REAL looks like.

But how?  I'm clueless and I'm reaching out hoping you'll talk to me and maybe by putting our heads together maybe you can help me figure this out.  Because there's a reason why people believed your voice about some of that stuff with prostitution was real - because the REAL survivors who come out of times like that can barely put two words together - let alone write a book about it!

And we need all of those people who listened to your stories about fake prostitution and pimps and we need to get them to understand what the REALITY is right here in America so we can do something about it other than having it actually allow traffickers and pimps to be operating in broad daylight now.  I mean the public has this so mixed up they think shutting down Backpage is actually shutting down sex trafficking.  While in reality - them doing that only INCREASES sex trafficking because it's now forcing people to have to work for them instead of remaining 'independent".

So please - give me a call if you can any day after 3 pm.  I'm also a very big night owl and talking to our new members also has me up all night most nights.  I really believe your story is one that's in just the right position to help us show the world how what the REALITY is now you've shown them the fake reality!

CONSPIRACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY LAWS

Things are not as they appear. Since Robin died, there has been a disturbing trend for groups like Abeni, SWOP, and others to be clearly just being used to gather information on sex workers. One of the reasons we choose to be a 12 step program is because of the issue of confidentiality - as well as "probable cause" with respect to conspiracy laws.

If you were to start up a group of bank robbers, and then to announce you're having a meeting for those bank robbers to get together to talk about the beauty of being a bank robber - guess what? The police can then use that as "probable cause" to get a warrant to tap the phones of the people organizing that meeting, the people attending that meeting, and to try and gather evidence to charge the organizers of that group under the "conspiracy" laws which became even broader under the Patriot Act because of George W. Bush.

Calls to our 12 step hotline are protected under the confidentiality laws. Things said in an SWA meeting are protected under the confidentiality laws. Even if an informant were to be sitting in one of our meetings - they can not enter into evidence anything they'd heard at a SWA meeting legally because we are just as protected with respect to confidentiality as AA is. That goes for putting wire tapes on our members' phones, their social media, and also our meetings and communications between members. Having a meeting is also not "probable cause" for the police to get clearance to photograph anyone at this meeting, nor eaves drop in any fashion.

These laws came about because there was a time when cops used to bust addicts for going to NA meetings. They would bust them for "violating probation" because of "congregating with other felons". special laws were passed which made going to a 12 step meeting NOT violate one's probation also.

Now that pisses off some people who would like to know more about our membership, as well as to eaves drop in on our members. Something which can't be done legally so there are some who are resorting to illegal methods. But we're confident no one is going to be arrested under the conspiracy laws for organizing our meetings, nor can anything said within our group context be used against anyone in a court of law because it's all protected with respect to confidentiality. Something important to know because many victims might still have things outstanding they were involved with where statutes may be running against them still.
For example - we had a member who died some years ago who was a teenager when sold to a pimp. This pimp would make one of the kids kill another one of the kids every month not only to establish his power, but also to gather blackmail. He would keep the evidence in a "safe place" and threaten the kids with them being arrested for murder if they ever thought of running from him, or trying to testify against him for his trafficking of them. In this man's case, he turned the gun on the pimp and murdered him when he was only 13 years old.

But the fact remains other victims in that trafficking ring had murdered someone because of being forced to do so by this pimp. Just because they're a juvenile, and just because they were a victim, doesn't exempt them from possibly standing a trial over the murder of that other person. Something which they might want to talk about in a meeting, or with their sponsor during a 5th step. Something for which we wanted to make sure they could share in their 5th step as part of the recovery process without having that sponsor then slapped with a subpoena demanding they testify against that person about what was said to them.

Just because some group claims they're a "sex trafficking" group or rescue doesn't mean they have the same confidentiality laws protecting their clients as we do in our program. Also, this goes for sex workers activist groups who want to push towards decriminalization. We had the same problem with COYOTE meetings - the predecessor to SWOP.

Which was why a lot of COYOTE members were also SWA members, and we'd organize things during SWA meetings to give those activists protection. Otherwise, we'd see people in similar situations drug off on a conspiracy charge and threatened with felony arrests and jail time.

If you don't understand what I mean by any of this - then please consult an attorney with respect to the conspiracy laws, as well as the confidentiality laws. Do not forget for one moment that just because sex trafficking domestically has received now federal recognition finally - that does not automatically mean prostitution suddenly stopped being a crime in 99 % of the USA. Nor has pimping and pandering gone off the books where I once saw someone convicted of a felony simply for giving a girlfriend of hers the phone number of a good regular. Receipt of a $1.00 from the "earnings of a prostitute" is a felony. That INCLUDES DONATIONS by the way.

Meaning that if a group or cause is soliciting donations from prostitutes - they could be charged with felony pimping. Now since we also accept money from prostitutes who buy our literature - this is again why we choose a 12 step program for legal protections not afforded us otherwise. I don't have to worry about the DA or IRS stepping up and demanding our financial records on our members for this reason. Again, something not afforded non-12 step programs.

There's also a little thing caused the 5th amendment. You have a right not to incriminate yourself which you are essentially doing if you go to some of these other groups and admit to some of the things you've done which may be illegal. Including if you admit to being involved in an illegal career in order to be accepted as a member to that group. Again, something which our members to our group are protected from such things.

Now if you want to go around waving a banner saying essentially you're a criminal and you want to organize a meeting of criminals and to do so without partnering with us in some fashion to afford yourself the benefits of these protections - then you need to ask yourself why someone would deny you that protection?

Yes there is a site up attacking us that was set up by Maxine Doogan, Domina Elle, and Norma Jean Almodavor. There is also a tracking cookie on that site. If that site was set up to attack us as a warning to sex workers - why the tracking cookie? Why target for identification people who are thinking about contacting our program for help to exit the sex industry? Why do they care who is contacting us enough to set up this trap to try and capture that information?

Good questions and something to think about. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the grant I traced from Swanee Hunt to Domina Elle's art gallery in Denver, the government's grant to Meg Munoz in Orange County, nor Maxine's recent over-turning of her felony conviction for pimping suddenly. Nah - not a thing to do with any of that . . . .

NOTICING THE PATTERN YET?

Another one bites the dust http://www.lasvegasnow.com/news/i-team-former-cop-suspected-pimp-linked-together-in-fbi-investigation/607916728 Notice the pattern yet guys? Yet another "crusader" who had NOTHING to do with www.sexworkersanonymous.com while claiming to be on the same side of the war as us. We established our headquarters in Nevada in 1996 and have been working with REAL victims against REAL traffickers ever since.

Has anyone figured out yet the ones who are all being exposed as fakes were the same ones who were refusing to even talk to us about the victims we were working with? Again, if someone is telling you they're wanting to help an alcoholic while refusing to even acknowledge Bill Wilson and Alcoholics Anonymous - then figure out something is WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!

WHAT'S HAPPENING IS EQUIVALENT TO:

People are asking me "why are you so upset?" about the types of people who have been speaking to Congress and the Senate about sex trafficking.  For years there's either been completely fake people who have been exposed as frauds such as Samoly Mam speaking to them, or when we kept exposing one after the other after the other as being frauds - then they just resort to bringing in an actual actor such as Ashton Kutcher to speak on the subject WHILE asking for money to do what they're doing WHICH IS SOMETHING WE'RE DOING ANYWAY?

Let's put it into terms which might make it clearer why I'm so upset - let's say that we're back during the days of Prohibition.  Prohibition was designed to do something about the problems alcoholics were presenting to this country BEFORE it was known they have a disease.  The thought was "let's arrest people and that will stop the problem".  

Only it didn't.  We saw what happened with Prohibition - it just made money for the criminals easier and bigger while making it harder for those with the disease to get help.  

Now - let's imagine that the subject of sex trafficking is like that of alcoholism and instead of having people like Bill Wilson, Dr. Bob or even Dr. Silkwood speaking on the subject to them you had instead one of the owners of Anheuser Busch breweries testifying on the subject of alcoholism, or the Oxford Group who was a church group who was claiming to help alcoholics but in fact was not doing anything other than being a church who raised money on the false claims they were able to help alcoholics.  

This was the group Bill Wilson was in where he found himself at eight months sobriety so hit with the craving to drink he reached out to Dr. Bob so he could help himself not drink that day.

Or if one of the owners of the sanitariums who was being paid to put the alcoholic in hospice care were to testify - but again NOT Dr. Bob, Bill Wilson or even Dr. Silkwood testifying.

The question is WHY?  Why do they keep putting up people who either aren't authentic survivors, actually run authentic groups that actually do effectively help victims, or non-survivors speaking on behalf of an outside view on the issue as Ashton Kutcher did - rather than put on someone like Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, who was the first group to identify it as a disease, and to come up with a solution that worked for the sufferer.  

I've analyzed what the fakes are saying vs. what one of "us" would say and I can assure you there are key points they're making sure is NOT being recorded on those hearings.  Again, we run the oldest, and largest, program of survivors in this country and until we're invited to speak, or even allowed to be in the same building when testimony is being heard - then we are being silenced about the true nature of what's happening here in the USA.

While yes I agree what Ashton witnessed in another country with respect to a child who was being victimized in a sex tourism racket is truly horrible.  But no matter HOW horrible - it STILL is NOT talking about what American victims go through on American soil! 

THAT'S what's being silenced from the public from hearing.
