AL FRANKEN, SNOOP DOGG, CHARLIE SHEEN, JAMES DEEN & ELIOT SPITZER - YOU TELL ME WHO DESERVES A "FULL ETHICS INVESTIGATION"?

Dear Al:

My name is Jody Williams.  Back in the 1980's I was witnessing not only Iran Contra, which as you know was our own CIA importing cocaine into this country to raise "off the books" cash to buy guns for the Contra's, but also what didn't have even a name for it back then which has since been coined as "sex trafficking". 

To my shock, I found out this wasn't even illegal.  Watch the unedited opening sequence of "Enter the Dragon" where Bruce Lee in 1973 was trying to convey to the world what was true - that is that it was not illegal to lure women into planes out of the country, get them hooked on drugs, and then sell them to the highest bidder.  To wit I saw our CIA selling women for not only cocaine/drug deals, but also to seal oil deals connected to the Bush family members.  I saw it with my own eyes - and because we as "prostitutes" were dubbed "criminals" we couldn't go to the police for help nor to even report what we were seeing.

The Rampart lawsuit was only the tip of the iceberg in that the police were being used as the "pit bulls" for this operation back then, so we not only couldn't go to the police for help - but we were running from them actually.  In order that children weren't going to get accidentally shot in a residential area, I took a warehouse in 1984 and created what I later learned was the first adult safe house for these victims.

Of course, these men weren't happy I was hiding women safely in this warehouse, so I was framed and arrested for "pimping" in 1984 to shut down the safe house.  To explain why we had all this high tech security equipment, I was held on a $50,000 bail while the prosecutor/police told the media I was dubbed the "High Tech Madam".  Only if you google this - you'll find EVERY SINGLE HIGH LEVEL MADAM was arrested in 1984.

Why?  Good question - because we were refusing to "sell" women to these CIA men for these drug/oil deals that's why.  So we were arrested, everything we owned taken, threatened with our family members being arrested, our faces plastered all over the media as "criminals" and then asked if we were going to be more "cooperative".  As it came out in the news, Alex was one became an informant for the rest of her life (Alex is the Beverly Hills Madam who mentored Heidi Fleiss). 

I however wanted to see things change.  So in 1987, I founded the first hotline in this country (yes years before Polaris created the National Trafficking Hotline) for sex trafficking victims to call for help, as well as anyone who wanted to simply get help to leave the sex industry for whatever reason.  I then embarked upon a major media campaign to raise awareness about modern domestic sex trafficking you can see some of on www.hightechmadam.com 

This resulted in the Trafficking Act of 2000 being passed giving us federal recognition for the first time in history.  Bill Wilson created Alcoholics Anonymous which led to the evolution of alcoholism being understood as a "disease" and not a "vice".  I was the Bill Wilson of the sex trafficking movement by creating the hotline, Sex Workers Anonymous (formerly Prostitutes Anonymous), and the movement that led to this Act being passed.

Only to see Randall Tobias and George W. Bush come in and pass the TVRA of 2003 - which gave all that money we created for victims to "faith based programs".  Randall became known as the man who wrote the "anti-prostitution clause" into financial aid.  Which is frankly why Polaris creating the National Trafficking Hotline in 2003 in fact. 

Why?  Because the government wanted to create a "sex trafficking victim hotline" that REFUSED HELP TO SEX WORKERS UNLIKE OUR HOTLINE - that's why.  You see we didn't take any "moral" stance on the sex industry being a 12 step program.  But our government had to - so in order to launch the government's "hot line" for sex trafficking victims - they of course had to EXCLUDE SEX WORKERS from  that hotline.  Kind of like trying to separate out someone who has the disease of alcoholism from someone who maybe abuses alcohol from treatment - which is why it isn't working really.  Because you can't exclude sex workers from trying to help sex trafficking victims anymore than you could try and target human trafficking victims that are maids at hotels while trying to block out aid to any hotel workers.  it was, and is, frankly ridiculous to be honest. 

But you see as we were raising awareness about what REAL MODERN DOMESTIC sex trafficking really is - the light was shining too brightly on those CIA men who were doing things like flooding drugs into our country, fueling gang violence, and selling American women to wealthy oil men and Columbian drug lords.  Which then takes the focus off the African American community - which was really the very backbone of what Iran Contra was about - taking the eyes off the white CIA men and putting it all on the AFrican American "gang bangers" to blame them for the drug epidemic.  Which was the formula they followed when they started "raising awareness" about sex trafficking without real victims' voices, i.e., when they had to start creating "fake victims" like Samoly Mam.  Who was a "manufactured victim" who while she was hogging the microphone - the voices of REAL victims was being silenced.

Look Al, I'm not saying you didn't upset some women with your "sexual harassment" and your upcoming "testimony at Congress" and the "ethics committee" - but frankly I find the focus on you making gestures at someone's boobs at a USO event MORE OFFENSIVE in itself because of who America's eyes will be on instead of who they should be on.  I mean on YOU?

Where's the hearings into what happened with Jeane Palfrey's murder (the DC Madam)?  In 1984, none of us madams had any proof about what our politicians were doing to us back then.  So we had to take the media portrayals of us just like the African American community had to take their portrayals that weren't true - and shut up.  But Jeane was the first one of us who had RECORDS.  She had cell phone records, bank receipts, tape recordings, etc.

NOT OF HER CLIENTS - but of how our government was using her just like they'd been using us for our government's political and financial agendas.  In essence, they were forcing Jeane, and women like Brandy Britton, to be in the industry because of their agenda.  And Jeane had proof.  That's why when she decided to quit the industry and flee the country - she was arrested at the airport.  They slapped her with the madam charge to try and silence her.  To not be silenced, she refused the plea bargain thinking it would come out as public record.  Only because of who the men were she was talking about - it was silenced. 

So she tried to release the "Black Book".  The goal was to get her book and movie out so WE FINALLY could tell the truth about what our government was doing to it's own women and children.  Because where was Jeane to go for help when Brandy Britton was murdered to silence her and when she was being forced to send out women on "calls" where she was being pumped for information, or sending out the information they wanted her to?  She was still someone our country was calling "criminal" as a madam because again the voices of REAL SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS IN AMERICA WERE BEING SILENCED. 

Only ABC LIED about the names in the book - which is why we thank God we had the foresight to give a copy of the book to the Smoking Gun.  They released names like David Vitter and Randall Tobias.  You see there was a deeper reason why Randall was making sure that no one identified as "prostitute" was able to get any type of "aid" or services - because we have to be silenced and not heard. 

When Jeane was going to get that million dollars award from Larry Flynt, and we were going to set up a movie production company to "get the truth out there" - she was murdered the day before she had a press conferenced scheduled where she was going to reveal not only more names - but also more about how she herself was being "forced", i.e., "trafficked". 

Her body wasn't cold when the media was calling it a "suicide".  You want to know where I think there needs to be an ethics hearing?  Into the men that were a part of the machine that led to not only Jeane Palfrey's murder, but also Brandy Britton and even Sylvia Landry - all three women connected to David Vitter who were all three found "hung" to silence their voices.  Yet these men continue to sit at high political offices by the way. 

In fact, the House Ethics Commission has declared that politicians can be "gifted" prostitutes (without specifying legal or illegal) and it's all perfectly fine!  But we're not holding hearings about this are we?  Or about who these women are that can be "gifted" like cars or things! 

They're complaining about you?  What about the NINE women that said James Deen raped them on the set of an adult movie?  What about the one woman who was told by the producers of the AVN that if she didn't present an award a month later on the same podium/stage with James she would be sued by them for "breach of contract"?  Or one of those women who was found dead of a drug overdose?  Or the woman who was raped anally on the set while the crew applauded at the blood spewing out?  I'm sorry - but I don't feel Tweeden speaking on major media every two seconds and flashing a photo of you "gesturing" towards her boobs should be getting more attention and more outrage and more investigation THAN WHAT HAPPENED TO JEANE, JAMES DEEN'S VICTIMS, CELESTE GUAP OR EVEN ELIOT SPITZER. 

How about we put the police officers who were pimping out and raping the juvenile Celeste Guap for years?  How about the fact that THREE police chiefs in a row were found to have to be replaced and step down before the mayor just left the position open in the Celeste Guap case.  Why is everyone screaming about your "groping" a woman while the MULTIPLE officers who RAPED AND TRAFFICKED CELESTE GUAP, and most likely others, is in the middle of a trial right now I don't hear ANYONE TALKING ABOUT!

Why isn't Eliot Spitzer joining you?  This man was ignored completely when it came out he was the NY prosecutor while frequenting escort services.  Only while he was the prosecutor - tell me if those escorts and even madams were able to go to the authorities about what crimes might be being done towards them?  With Eliot having to cover up his dirty laundry - they were fair game for crime, rape, etc.  Mind you he wasn't "caught".  He wasn't "arrested".  He didn't "confess".  We only found out about it because an agent "leaked the surveillance tape" to let us know as a country what he did.  What happened?  Did we arrest him?  Not only did we NOT ARREST HIM - BUT HE STARTED WRITING SEX TRAFFICKING LAWS AND LAWS CRIMINALIZING BUYERS?  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  That's about as bad as when we saw Pablo Escobar writing laws about extradition in Mexico!

So what happened to dear Eliot?  Did he "change his ways"?  Oh no - another Russian escort was in such fear of her life from him that she was trying to leave the country to get away from his reach.  Only he cornered her in a NY hotel room and ASSAULTED HER.  Did he get arrested?  No - SHE DID.  He claimed she was "blackmailing him" and SHE WAS ARRESTED. 

And YOU'RE GOING TO BE INVESTIGATED BY OUR ETHICS COMMITTEE?  WHAT ABOUT ELIOT? 

What about John McCain?  He and his wife barged into the sex trafficking field shouting there was "no such thing" as a "juvenile prostitute" begging our criminal justice system to "stop arresting these victims".  A campaign complete with the "fake catfish juvenile victim" as well as a structure set up to launder oil money donations through the campaign. 

Only where were the REAL SURVIVORS OF JUVENILE SEX TRAFFICKING IN THIS "NO SUCH THING" CAMPAIGN?  They weren't the ones saying to "not arrest us".  You know why?  Because it was bullshit - it was a clever way of "marketing" the idea of NOT PROSECUTING THE PIMPS AND NOT PROSECUTING THE JOHNS.  Because the real story is that for every juvenile arrested for prostitution - there is an investigation into the "buyer" as well as who is "selling" them.  If they aren't arrested - then no prosecution into these predators is created then is there? 

You want something to be investigated about "sexual abuse" in this country - I don't think it's a few women you groped while a stand up comedian.  What should be investigated is that BILLIONS of dollars have supposedly been raised to provide programs and services to "sex trafficking victims" that EXCLUDE PROSTITUTES for one thing.  Kind of like saying we'll only help sober alcoholics get sober - it's insane for one thing.  Especially when the very nature of being a trafficking victim is that you're BRAINWASHED INTO NOT KNOWING YOU'RE A VICTIM for one thing. 

For another - where is all this money gone?  I've seen BILLIONS being raised for "sex trafficking victims" yet when I answer our hotline as I do every night since 1987, and I get a victim calling me just about every Friday night like they do asking for help - NO ONE ANSWERS THE PHONE at these programs.  They're either out "at a fund raiser" or just not answering.  I can show you how EVERY SINGLE TASK FORCE HAS NOW BEEN EXPOSED AS PROMOTING SEX TRAFFICKING IN THIS COUNTRY for one thing. 

But where's the money?  In the 80's we flooded the country with cocaine to raise cash.  Welcome to Iran Contra 2.0 where the money was raised at "fund raisers" with "fake catfish victims" and "straw programs" that don't exist for victims.  I know because whenever I try and get a victim placed in one of these programs, or get them some help, or access any of these services - they aren't there!  And then everyone makes sure to keep me muzzled so no one knows this fact either.  Only where then did the money go?  Los Angeles alone was supposedly putting $7 million dollars aside for housing for sex trafficking victims - and I can't get a victim a hotel for one night so where's the money? 

Harry Reid once proposed that we needed to get politicians caught frequenting prostitutes to step down out of office because of the proximity it put them to corruption and crime - and I saw that man drummed right out of politics in response.  Yet I see men like Chris Butler and Joohon David Lee caught sex trafficking while in protected government jobs - and not only are they not thrown in jail for sex trafficking, but they get to retire on their pensions after being caught as traffickers?  And the media wants to investigate YOU?

No wonder our politicians are mixed up about what's "appropriate sexual behavior" in this country because I'm confused as shit right now seeing the media pouncing on YOU  as the "bad guy" for some jokes and groping while I'm seeing women being flown over into this country and trafficked by a Homeland Security, ICE and human trafficking agent on plane tickets bought with taxpayer money - and I'm not seeing ANYONE talk about what these men did to women - and I got to tell you I'm completely mixed up right now as to what's "appropriate" considering all these mixed messages I'm seeing right now. 

I mean why is the woman you groped getting sooooo much more air and media time for her outrage while the victims of men like James Deen are told they have to "stand on a stage and smile at the camera or they're be sued"? 

Better yet - can you explain to me why YOU'RE the one being investigated and questioned in front of our country but SNOOP DOGG ISN'T?  The man CONFESSED TO TRAFFICKING WOMEN ALL ACROSS THIS COUNTRY IN 2003 AND I DOUBT HE CHECKED THEIR ID WHEN THEY WERE ON THAT RV - and YOU'RE THE ONE BEING GRILLED OVER THE COALS?

Charlie Sheen deliberately infects women with HIV/AIDS  and YOU'RE THE ONE BEING DEMONIZED?

If you have any idea how to explain that to the ethics commission - please explain it to me.  Thanks - Jody Williams (702) 488-1127 www.sexworkersanonymous.com

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO . . . . ?

Shortly after Dennis Hof announced he was running for the Senate - a woman calling herself "Jennifer O'Kane" starts blasting all over social media that she was "raped by Dennis Hof" and inviting other victims to CONTACT HER.  Not to CONTACT THE POLICE.   Not to CONTACT A LAWYER.  But to contact HER about the case.  

Why?

Good question.  She says she was "raped by Dennis Hof and she wants to build a class action lawsuit so she needs other victims to contact her".  Interesting.  

Because I've dealt with REAL sex workers and REAL trafficking victims both out of Nevada since the 1980's I know a little bit about this subject.   Especially since I've also worked as a paralegal for 30 years now.  Why a paralegal?  Because most attorneys' won't go near defending one of us because of what it will do to their reputation - that's why.  Another reason they won't is because if you're good at defending us - the government tries to put you out of business.

Take for example Mitchell J. Stein.  His paralegal also is on the board of Safe Passage.  They help REAL trafficking victims.  NOT FAKE ONES like Chong Kim, Rachel Moran, Samoly Mam, and a few others I can name who are complete fabrications designed to either generate a lot of cash in donations, or spread a lot of propaganda about sex work and trafficking, or both and/or snitches.  
Yes "snitches".  Because another common tactic law enforcement uses these days is to create false "advocates" who claim to be "survivors" who use that to try and pump people out of information that's then subpoena and then they're forced to testify against the people they had said they were "advocating" for.  So I'm not saying that all of these "snitches" are voluntary - some are just drug into it involuntarily - but testify against the sex worker is still what they're doing in the end result who told them things in confidence thinking they were protected on that level and they were not.  

Anyway, back in 2013, when a lot of trafficking laws were being passed, I remember a woman from Finland who came to the states claiming to be a "photojournalist".  She claimed she was wanting to do a "photojournalist art project of sex trafficking victims" and she wanted to photograph "real" sex trafficking victims for an "international magazine spread".  

This woman showed me a portfolio and I verified she was working at a Finnish magazine, but when she showed up to meet with me - she didn't have a camera with her.  When I asked where it was, she said it had been "stolen from his hostel room".  Now any PHOTOJOURNALIST I've ever met has $1,000's of dollars in equipment and they're not going to leave that in a hostel, but will pay for a room.  

I suspected a "catfish" situation, so I handed her my camera.  I asked her to show me how to operate it and she couldn't!  I got a lame excuse about her "not knowing my camera" and then she started pushing me to meet members we'd rescued.   I told her that if she wanted to "photograph victims" then we needed to go down to Metro and see what they were bringing into the jail about midnight.  Then I wanted to take her to Judge Voy's courtroom and let her talk to teens there being treated like animals.  She refused.  Not making sense here.  

I had just learned to use Google image search so I ran her portfolio through it and found that voila!  Her photos were stock bought from three different photographers - so not hers.  I called back the magazine who said she was there only a short time as a free "intern" and they'd never seen her work.  I had a friend pull her cell phone records and interestingly - her phone calls for that week were only to three people.  

One was Melissa Farley and the other was Dennis Hof.  I threatened to file charges against her for fraud which would prevent her from going back home if she didn't tell me what the hell was going on.  So have I "threatened" people?  You're damn right I have.  Here's a woman asking me to be introduced to people who have ESCAPED sex trafficking which would expose their new address and appearance to being sent back to the people they just escaped from.  

So yeah I wanted to know what her story was.  Her answer was quite interesting which I got from her in writing before I agreed to not file charges and keep her in this country.   But let's just say some people go to very extreme lengths to find out where women who have left the sex industry go when they quit and want to be left alone and not drug back into the business.  

As well as to get evidence out of your hands you have to prosecute someone with.  It's a well known tactic I've seen to contact people who are about to file charges against someone like the police department for sex trafficking, and a "reporter" will contact them wanting to see their evidence.  They show it and voila!  The evidence is suddenly just gone.  Either that or they're silenced.  

I had this one pulled on me in 1984.  I was approached by producers giving me a song and dance about a movie and a book they were going to do based on my experiences.  I signed their contracts and nothing happened.  When I was asked to do interviews, they told me I had signed a contract and I couldn't do so unless they approved - which they never approved.  I had a director friend of mine contact me saying he'd heard I'm signed an agreement which basically "shut me up".  I asked him what he was talking about and he starts laughing.  

This was before the internet readers - so you have to understand I had no idea that Republic Pictures didn't PRODUCE anything!  They strictly marketed John Wayne movies.  My friend educated me that what I had signed was a "silence" agreement.  I've since seen this used on many people like "Heather" who shot Neal Falls.  Where did she go?  

According to a call I got some supposedly her on a phone which was in her house so I believe it was her - she had also been approached by producers talk about the movies they were going to make about her, only she'd also been locked into a "silence" agreement instead!

Back to attorneys' however, look at Jeane Palfrey's attorney, Montgomery Sibley.  He was disbarred and chased down to Florida for defending her case well at first.  The man who defended me in my case had his life threatened more than once by people trying to get him to drop my defense.  They confiscated my money so I couldn't pay him for ages also.  If we hadn't of been family friends for years - I wouldn't have had an attorney helping me.   But my point being I've seen the extent some people will go to in order to silence people they want to silence.  

What threw me about Jennifer's accusation against Dennis is she didn't come to me, she went to Melissa Woodward SUPPOSEDLY.  I say "supposedly" because I've got a stack of phone numbers of real live sex workers telling me that THEY called Melissa at Awaken for help and they didn't even get a return phone call - but supposedly Jennifer not only got through to her - but got advice on what to do about Dennis raping her.  

Okay.

So what was the "advice" Melissa Woodward supposedly gave Jennifer O'Hare about being raped by Dennis?  Well the first thing I'd do of course would be to make sure she went to the nearest hospital, ER, or called an ambulance to have a rape kit taken.  Now granted Nevada hasn't been testing rape kits for a while - but that's still what you need to do in order to gather and preserve evidence.  

http://endthebacklog.org/nevada  Now considering how many women in Nevada, and men, have told me they've been raped, I well know that there are no laws in Nevada REQUIRING law enforcement to take, keep track of, test, etc., these kits.  There's 1,000's of them sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust.  So while yes I would tell someone to go to the nearest ER to get a rape kit taken - I personally would also advise anyone telling me they were raped in Nevada by anyone, not just Dennis Hof, but anyone, to be sure to get a duplicate set of that evidence taken, and to send it to an independent lab outside of Nevada yourself.  

What I mean by that is NOT Quest Diagnostics.  I've seen people connected to the legal brothel industry, and sex trafficking, SHOW ME with my OWN EYES that they can alter test results out of Quest Diagnostics just by pushing a few buttons.  They do this why?  TO PROTECT THEMSELVES from things like DNA gathered at crime scenes, etc.  

Now if you can't get to a hospital right away, still go when you can.  The other thing of course is to CALL THE POLICE AND MAKE A REPORT.  Real simple right?  Because the DA's office can't file a case against someone if they don't make a police report.  The DA does NOT file CIVIL cases - only criminal.  So for the "DA" in Nevada to have charged Dennis Hof, a police report has to be filed.  And filed within 2 years when it's a rape accusation.  

So here's where Jennifer and Melissa's story began to unravel and bother me.  Supposedly Melissa Woodward had "advised Jennifer to go to the Pahrump DA's office and file a criminal case" against Dennis Hof.  Okay, but the DA can't file anything without a police report first.  Then they need evidence.  If they don't have evidence they need a witness.  But they need SOMETHING.  Because if they don't get evidence, and a witness, and SOMETHING within 2 years of the rape - then the DA can't file a rape charge.  

On one hand Jennifer's telling me how "great Melissa was about taking her to the Pahrump DA's office" but then she's on the other hand telling me that (1) no police report was made, (2) no rape kit exists, and (3) no criminal charges filed.  I mean the DA can't just file a charge on someone - you need EVIDENCE and they won't file unless there's enough EVIDENCE to prosecute someone.

Jennifer tells me that she "escaped the rape by trying to climb out a window of the Bunny Ranch but then the other women beat her up so badly she couldn't get out".  But that after they beat her up, she managed to get out of the Bunny Ranch who LOCKS THEIR GATES and where it's AGAINST THE LAW TO LEAVE AT NIGHT because of curfew laws.  I asked her how she got out of the locked gates and considering the curfew laws - how did she get off the property then?  Then she says "oh the police were called".  Well which is it?  I'm getting conflicting stories here.  Which is not uncommon in rape and trauma victims - so that's not the problem here for me.  

But if the "other women" at the ranch beat her up, then THEY need to have police reports filed for assault and battery then.  Now if I was Melissa Woodward and I heard that "the other women beat me up so I couldn't leave" then I might advise Jennifer to file a police report against THOSE women for beating me up!  Because they're also witnesses to the rape right?  Meaning you'll need their names - which you can then get off the police report.  But I'm again now hearing there's "no police report".  

The DA is not going to again file a civil case against Dennis.  That's something a PRIVATE attorney has to do.  So in midstream Jennifer now claims it's a "civil action" she's filed against Dennis in the Pahrump court.  Okay that means that an attorney who is LICENSED TO PRACTICE IN PAHRUMP, and willing to go up against a judge who has been sitting on that bench for who knows how long.  Only that's just it - there's only ONE judge in Pahrump.  Now I've spoken to EVERY attorney who is licensed to appear in Pahrump (it's a short list) and NOT A ONE OF THEM IS WILLING TO SUE DENNIS HOF.  

If you want to know what type of cases the DA up in Pahrump sues over - check out the court calendar for that town:  https://www.pahrumpjusticecourt.com/  What I see is a very very LONG list of people trying to get restraining orders.  Why?  But take a close look - and do you see an attorney in there also suing for a civil case on these cases?  

So to sue Dennis Hof you would have to bring in an outside attorney - someone from outside of Nevada who then has to get himself admitted to the Bar so he can then sue Dennis - which takes an out of state attorney.  I also know from experience that the Nevada DA's are not willing to sue ANYONE from the brothels either.  Again I know because WE'VE TALKED TO THEM.   To find a DA willing to prosecute the owners of the Shady Lady for what they were doing to the women there - we had to make a special arrangement with the CA US Attorney's office to do so.

Meaning if Melissa Woodward advised Jennifer to do what Jennifer is saying she did - she's either an idiot or lying or someone is yanking her chain because it just won't work that way.  And why Jennifer would then be PRAISING Melissa Woodward for sending her on a wild goose chase that led nowhere in the real world - I sure as hell have no idea.  

Because there's another problem in that WHO IS GOING TO REPORT ON IT?  Up until recently, I've talked to the staff who was at the Review Journal up until the sale of the paper a few years ago.  NO ONE at the RJ up until the sale of the paper would DARE  have published a story like this.  Not without PROOF to back up every single word Jennifer said as being true.  In fact, I don't know ANY reputable reporter who WOULD print a story like "Dennis Hof raped me and I'm suing him in court" who wouldn't say "can I see the paperwork please?" before agreeing to print the story.

So I'm asking Jennifer for the paperwork and she's not giving it to me - but she's asking me to believe her.  But ANY reputable reporter is going to do the same thing.  So this is a question that if you want to be BELIEVED,  then you're going to need paperwork.  

She tells me that "Monica Foster and Desi Foxx all know about my case".  I've never met Monica Foster in person.  Sure I've seen some pretty crazy videos she has online, but I've NEVER met this woman in person.  As for Desi, she used to have a lot of "anti-sex trafficking" websites up, but the woman never returned my phone calls and so I never met her in person either.  

And yes, Monica and Desi are printing some pretty elaborate stories about the so called "Dennis rape".  But I'm not seeing any PROOF.  I see a twitter post up about "here's my case number" supposedly, only when you open up the picture it's a letter from Dennis Hof's attorney telling her to "knock it off".  I can't say I blame him.  You don't go around saying someone "raped you" unless you have some kind of proof.  

So I contacted Dennis personally and asked him about Jennifer - to which he then did something illegal for any employer, or doctor even to do.  He then started telling me about Jennifer's "psychiatric history" basically and other personal medical issues about her and saying that's why he hasn't sued her yet to shut her up was because he was "feeling sorry for her and she needed help".  

You know what?  If Jennifer was a secretary who worked for Dennis at one point in time and started telling everyone about her personal medical history like that - that's illegal.  

But it didn't stop Dennis from posting other very PERSONAL details about past employees with Desi either if you note this article here -  http://therealpornwikileaks.com/bunny-ranch-owner-dennis-hof-tells-trpwl-all-about-desi-foxx/

You know what?  The sex industry likes to say "this is an industry" but then they don't want to FOLLOW INDUSTRY LAWS".  Meaning if this was ANY other type of business, you don't go shooting off your mouth about your past employees medical conditions, or things that led to their termination from your employ without expecting to get hit with a lawsuit.  

Which is why I've been saying for over 25 years now that the legal brothels in Nevada either need to have a UNION or they need to have an ADVOCATE, because they don't follow basic employment laws that any other employer has to follow while also claiming to be a "legitimate business".  Only you leave the employ of the brothels and guess what?  You're going to get blasted all over the internet - that's what.  Because I've seen other ex-employees of the ranches have their bosses totally violate labor laws by posting details about THEIR version about why this person left that is completely illegal.  

But yes I was seeing all over the internet how Monica and Desi were siding with Jennifer over this rape.  Only for MONTHS I asked to get a name, a phone number, a report, SOMETHING - and got nothing.

But boy Jennifer wanted to know if we knew anyone else who had been raped or harmed by Dennis Hof REAL bad.  She said she was trying to "file a class action lawsuit".  Okay that requires a special attorney.  That also requires FIVE  people with EVIDENCE  and WITNESSES.  So she's asking me to introduce her to people I know that have this, but she's not showing me anything back.  

Then I get a call months later from her saying "I have a case number".  Okay what is it?  It wasn't a case number.   Then it was - oh that's my attorney's phone number who is prosecuting the case.  Okay who is your attorney?  She won't tell me but she wants me to call this phone number AND have other victims call this number.  Again, why would I expose other people to being identified until I've verified this story is even real?  

I had the shock of the century when I met a reporter last night for the Review Journal who is part of a new hire that I believe is a REAL investigative journalist.  Someone who would DO HIS HOMEWORK but also publish the truth if he saw it.  He says he "wants to talk to anyone victimized in Nevada".  Okay well let's let him talk to Jennifer.  

Her phone is disconnected.  Her twitter account is down.  I go to Monica's social media and the only thing up are some youtube video.  I found all media for Desi Fox has just disappeared also.  All of Desi's old sites go to porn sites now that don't even have her name on them.  

What does that mean?  I don't know.  Maybe they're all hiding in fear or maybe it was another catfish bullshit story designed to flush out REAL victims so they could be threatened into silence before Dennis runs for Senate.  

So Jennifer, Desi or Monica - I have found a REAL reporter who will publish the FACTS, if you have them, in Nevada, which has been impossible to do for the last 10 years - and if you have information for him to review I'm sure he'd review it.   

But you're nowhere to be found.  

Moral?

If you're raped in Nevada - call an ambulance or go to ER and get a rape kit done.   Get a second set of evidence to take to an outside of Nevada lab that isn't Quest Diagnostics.  That's the FIRST thing to do.  

Or call the police.  They have to also make sure an ambulance is called to do a medical exam if you're raped.  Get a report.  Get a copy of that report.  Then make sure you take it to the local DA's office who, like in the OJ case, is going to tell you you'll need a good attorney to file a civil case.  Why?  Because there's evidence you can't get for a criminal case that you can get if a civil case is going.  Remember, OJ lost on the criminal case but won on the civil case.  So they're DIFFERENT.  

You have only TWO YEARS to file a complaint within or that's it - it's over.  You also have to realize if you sue a corporation, there's also other laws which mean you might have to get permission to sue them before you can sue them.  If the police are involved, you have only six months time to file a complaint.  

But remember this, on the show "Cathouse", a prison guard in Nevada was uncovered as also being an actor on that show and it cost him his job.  Dennis has friends with people like John Hambrick - men who men like Chris Edwards in the house are saying are "intimidating" him and "bullying their way into the speaker of the house" seat - his words not mine.  

Joohoon David Lee, with Homeland Security, ICE and the trafficking task force is now driving a limo with CLS limo, the same limo service Dennis uses.   Joohoon is IMMUNE from prosecution for sex trafficking because he did it while ON THE JOB.  Catch this - IMMUNE FROM PROSECUTION.  The only thing he could be charged with was bribery by a Mr. H. (whoever that is).  A "Mr. H" who wasn't charged at all in that case.  

Dennis is running for Senate.  He's donated checks to the US Attorney.  In other words, he has a lot of "friends" so do you really think you should go walking to the the Pahrump's police, court or DA's office to make a complaint without a really good lawyer, and a really good recorder, going. 

The KARDASHIAN PRESS PERSON during the Lamar Odom case has told the world Dennis told her to "shut the fuck up" and didn't care about what the PR person for the Kardashians' said because he knew he was going to have the ears of the press, not her.

Now, do you REALLY think you should be going up there rattling cages unless you had a really good team of backup behind you first?  

Why do you think we operate this hotline at www.sexworkersanonymous.com?  If you need help, and something has happened to you and I don't care WHO did it to you - you contact us for help and you'll get that help.  Most important I know that we know how to GET you that help - not send you off on wild goose chases and then a few months down the road you've disappeared off social media.  

Great job Melissa Woodward.  You really showed Jennifer O'Kane how to prosecute Dennis Hof for rape!  You really "advocated" for Jennifer didn't you?  Only, as usual, I don't see jack shit in reality out of you Melissa but that everyone's gone and I don't see any charges - so like usual I don't know what the hell you're doing over at Awaken but the victims who call me for help say you don't lift a finger to help them. 

Now maybe you help some burned out street prostitutes that are cast off's of the legal brothels - but you sure as hell don't seem to do a finger for someone trying to get out of the sex industry in Nevada.  If you did - where's Jennifer?  

Where's Dennis being "drug off in handcuffs"? 

Now I think Dennis revealing private medical information about an ex-employee was illegal and wrong.  But I sure as hell don't see him being arrested for rape - so one has to ask - WHY was Jennifer all over social media trying to get "other" victims to come forward?  Where are they?

LEGAL BROTHELS OF NEVADA

I've been the shoulder many women have cried on about the working conditions up at the legal brothels.  I've also seen how things have taken a very dark turn since about 2007 with the industry itself.  Including how many of you have been actively "persuaded" not to go to the press, if they'd listen to you, about your experiences.

It seems the union is trying to expand into the industry in Nevada according to Jennifer O'Hare who opened up a brothel herself supposedly to be in "competition" with the male run brothels up in the region.  She's also had some very serious accusations she's made against other brothel owners.

I told her I'd put it out there to you as our members if you want to come forward and talk about your experiences up there with the idea of changing working conditions.  I know some of you have been seriously threatened and I myself have had to relocate many of you outside of Nevada entirely.  But nothing changes until it's had a light shined upon it.  Sometimes yes at great cost to those of us turning on that flashlight.  So I don't blame any of you for not wanting to talk about these issues.  I'm not even convinced myself this whole thing isn't just some way to flush you out of the bushes before Dennis Hof runs for the Senate.

If you want to talk about this, then I'm going to advise you to come to me first and let me have you consult with one of our trusted attorney's who can advise you of any legal repercussions you have to be aware of or careful about first, and ways to protect yourself from retaliation.  Today's gangsters use lawyers as we well know!

You know how to reach me if you want to talk about this more.

LETTER SENT TO CONTRA COSTA COUNTY INCLUDING POLICE ACADEMY

Dear Contra Costa County:

We need to talk.  When I was in this "Celeste Guap"s" same shoes myself back in 1984, and the LAPD was trying to also silence me about what I knew about police involvement in sex trafficking, I don't mean having sex with underage hookers, but I mean actual involvement in domestic sex trafficking - one of the places they sent me during my harassment and trying to "frame" me somehow, someway, for a conviction of some kind - was to ship me off to Contra Costa County on a fake charge there.  

So the kinds of things that has been going on with people like Celeste has been going on at least THIRTY FOUR YEARS now by my count.  Let me ask you something - if you are a minority juvenile Hispanic female living in this part of the country and a male uniformed cop just simply "asks" you for sex while your mother is a 911 operator whose very job depends upon her continuing to be in the "good graces" of the police - tell me if that is not another form of "coercion" where this girl might not only be tempted to say "yes" but even to act like she "wanted it" in order to protect her mother's job?

I heard recently of a training provided to police cadets about the type of pimps who are often found on Backpage.  That of the African American pimp.  Now I know California police cadets are trained what to do when an African American street pimp needs to be found, arrested, convicted, etc. by listening to a public radio broadcast I heard recently about this training provided by "Game Over" to cadets on how to take down such criminals - but let me ask you another question - have you provided trainings for your police cadets, and other related agencies like the sheriffs' office on what to do when the person who is involved in sex trafficking is instead:

1.   Joohoon David Lee
2.   Chris Butler
3.   Kemp Shiffer

I ask you this because Joohoon David Lee was actively bringing women over to this country from China through LAX using his Homeland Security badge and connections while also serving on the local sex trafficking task force for this region as well as Immigration.  Not one of the training materials I found for LAX personnel included what to do when a man like that was walking his victims right past LAX security.

I know that because when I tried to report what victims of his were telling me to these authorities no one had a clue how to even respond to my calls, let alone what to do about the guy.  I do know someone told him about my calls because he switched over from bringing Chinese women into this country to Korean women instead to throw off the trail so to speak and further try and convince anyone talking about my calls "oh that Jody is just crazy" as predators do by the way.

After not getting anyone to listen to me about him for YEARS, all while he was running around the trafficking field in this region talking about "don't listen to Jody - she's crazy" as the chant goes for anyone I've tried to get brought down for sex trafficking here in this country - I finally managed to get the people over at the Office for Professional Responsibility to open an investigation into what he was doing.

Now during the time Joohoon was actually involved in trafficking personally - he was having to also appear to be "doing his job".  This meant falsely framing an entire family who were completely innocent.  This family is reported to have contacted Joohoon's boss at Homeland Security about the situation where they were told supposedly "yes we know what he's doing but there's nothing we can do about it".  This was told to innocent people right here on American soil mind you while I couldn't get anyone to help me with the victims clear back to "Operation Dollhouse" in 2007.

This man was driving a limo up to his sentencing hearings while working for CLS Limo owned by Charles Horkey.  A man who also was found guilty of sex trafficking, as well as crimes of drugging his patrons while maxing out their credit cards.  Men he targeted who were frequenting massage parlors, strip clubs, and other venues where he could easily attempt to blackmail them out of filing charges by reminding them of where he'd picked them up to have this happen to them.  

A man who shared a lobbyist with a group called the "Cupcake Girls" who were brought in to try and make it appear again this man was actually "doing something" about sex trafficking while in reality not by people who would back up his false stories.  A lobbyist who then went to the Nevada legislature to get a law passed that would take women with prostitution convictions and allow them to have it overturned with a judge's signature allowing them to go get a brothel prostitute license to work in Nevada I should add also to the outline here of what happens when the issue of sex trafficking is being worked on by groups who are actively shunning our program in the process because I'm wanting to show you a pattern here.  

Like Chris Butler's situation.  This man was an ex-cop of 20 years who went into private investigation.  He opened his own company and even went on the Dr. Phil show explaining that he hired sexy "investigators" to do "husband cheating stings" when there was a deeper, darker reason why he was hiring these women.  In reality these women were coming onto wealthy businessmen and then drugging them at bars.  After slipping them drugs - the men were invited "back to their place" for sex.

Only when the men would set foot in their cars to do so, another "friend" of Chris' who was an active duty cop would be there to stop the man, DUI test him, and then finding he was in fact under the influence, along with a hot lady in his car, threaten to arrest him for a DUI knowing he would object because he wouldn't want his wife to find out about the woman in the car.  Neither his boss about a DUI with a hooker in the car.  Making the man vulnerable to paying a bribe to the cops doing this.

What did Chris get out of feeding these victims to bad cops?  He was also running his own prostitution operation.  He owned some massage parlors where he would take women he knew weren't undercover police because they'd been arrested previously to work in the place.  Then he'd obtain drugs through the evidence lockers brought in by his other cop friends and resell these drugs through his massage parlor using his prostitutes as the mules and dealers just in case anyone was caught on an undercover video or sting operation.  

This way he also avoided anyone getting caught through any undercover investigations the Attorney General's office may have tried to get done against his operation which spanned quite a few states for many years I'd like to add.  Especially since they used other cops, sheriffs, and marshals' cars to transport the drugs, guns, stolen items, and even the sex trafficking victims while avoiding anyone being stopped by a cop who wasn't a part of their operation while transporting these items.  If they were stopped - then a simple "I'm taking them in" would answer any questions and they'd move on.

I had gone to a lot of effort to try and get Joe Conforte arrested who used to own the Mustang Ranch in Nevada.  Thinking back to Al Capone - the only way  I could think of getting him arrested was through the IRS.  Which through a madam I had helped to get clean and free of him - we were able to get his "real" books to the IRS who then came down and took over control of the ranch from him.  

I thought this would allow us to get the women being trafficked against their will out of there with him gone.  Especially with the control Joe had over local police and politicians.  Remember, this guy shot a famous boxer down in cold blood in front of a cop and didn't spend one day in jail nor even get arrested over this murder.  Victims of his were drug back to the ranch by cops using the "curfew" laws that exist in the cities where these legal brothels operate.

Little did I know that an ex-cop named Kemp Shiffer who had become an IRS agent would realize that the legal age for sex in Nevada was 15 years old.  Something important for a California pedophile to know about.  So following the "law", Kemp started transporting juvenile females from Oakland, California to the ranch and using work permits obtained to work in the "restaurant" for 16 year old girls - putting these girls inside of those legal brothels at ages too young to even legally vote, smoke or even drink alcohol or smoke a cigarette I'd like to add.  He would get many of these girls out of group homes who had no parents or adults to object also who didn't know what he was doing while talking about how he was "going to get them a legal job" to get them into his car and signed out to his control.

All perfectly LEGAL I'd like to add.  Which is why when I went to the IRS and the police about it originally they said there was "nothing they could do" about it other than fire him from the IRS.  So he was able to continue what he was doing for another 11 years before he was finally arrested for sex trafficking.  For 12 years of doing this - he was given a two year sentence by the way for his crimes against these girls. 

No effort was made to contact all 12 years of his victims either nor to contact the cops who were arresting these juveniles as prostitutes and giving him "tips" as to who would be good women to target once they knew they weren't "undercover police" who might turn them in for what they were doing.  Young girls on probation who could be threatened into not going to the press also by the way with threats of dragging them off to jail on probation violations.

For years after I started Prostitutes Anonymous later renamed to Sex Workers Anonymous in 1995 - I had the full support of police departments I'd like you to know.  I say that because the first alternative sentencing and diversion program we put together in Los Angeles county was done under the full support of then mayor Tom Bradley, Sheriff Block, Chief Gates, and California Attorney General Edwin Meese who was working on the Meese Commission back then trying to help what was happening to the porn industry back then.  

We had great success with that program and it led to us creating the first outreach teams to the sex industry to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic.  That was so effective that within one year we had reduced the infection rate among sex workers from over 80 % to 6 % which was lower than that of the "non-sex worker community" I'd like to add.  We were the people who even got the porn industry to voluntarily start making "safe sex" films to try and lead the "consumers" to wanting to practice safe sex because of the fact we too were once sex workers ourselves. 

In fact, an ex-porn star back then was made a doctor and the AIM Clinic was opened to provide HIV/AIDS testing to the porn/sex industry exclusively because the industry was reluctant to use the same facilities for testing as "non-industry" people.  I say that because that clinic was able to stop some serious STD and HIV/AIDS  outbreaks over the years while they were open before they were shut down in my opinion by people who deliberately set out to get them shut down because of their knowledge of who was who in the sex industry and because they were a trusted point of contact within the industry.

I say that because our group underwent the same type of attack, smear campaign, etc., about the same time as the AIM Clinic, and many other points of contact within the sex industry did at the same time.  Why were we attacked?

For reasons I believe the Celeste Guap case illustrates well for one thing.  For another, because a lot of money was being prepared to be sent out and cut up to help "sex trafficking victims" and the last thing certain people wanted was to have people like myself and Dr. Mitchell involved on those trafficking task forces.  Again why?  Again back to the story of Celeste Guap as your answer.  Because there were a lot of people who didn't want victims to be able to get to us mostly who weren't being controlled by these people trying to silence their victims.

That or even their "guilty conscience".  I want to tell you a quick story about that ground breaking alternative sentencing program which was launched in LA back in 1987.  The Mayor said to get things going we had to get the approval of everyone on every public office such as probation, parole, social services, mental health, the CDC, the prison, police, etc.  He said once I had a letter from each office agreeing to work with us as an "alternative" method for these victims to get help instead of treating them like criminals - we would start the process.

Everyone immediately agreed that getting these victims into services and counseling was preferable to treating them like criminals and carting them off to jail.  Everyone EXCEPT the man who was the head of the Probation Dept.  I couldn't get him to answer the phone and tell me why he was refusing to sign the letter either.  So I got into my car and drove two hours to Downey to knock on his door and ask him what the problem was.

When I got there, he got onto the phone with me and said he "didn't agree" with the idea and he tried to brush me off.  Being how I am - I pushed into his office to demand to speak with him in person about his objections.  When I walked into his office and faced him - I immediately knew what the problem was.  This man had been a "regular" of mine for some years when I myself was a prostitute.

I closed the door and said to him that he of all people should be supporting getting these women into services instead of sending them off to jail being as he saw the kinds of things going on with them.  I asked him why he would object to this program.  His answer was simple - fear of discovery about his activities.  I assured him the last thing we wanted to do was this and he had our discretion of course.  This allowed him to sign the letter and for our program to launch.  

Only I'm dealing with his type of guilt now all over the state and country.  I can show you case after case after case where a judge, a prosecutor, probation officer, and all of the above in some counties are involved as "consumers" of these victims who don't even view them as victims because their conscience won't allow them to.  You would be surprised at the lengths I've heard these men go to in order to convince themselves the women they were seeing were not being victimized by pimps and/or traffickers because they just don't want to see themselves this way.  Even now I'm sure you'll be hearing from men who will justify their behavior by saying things like "Celeste asked for it" or "consented" or "look at her - does she look like an underage girl", etc., to justify what they did.

Which was to remove the ability of a victim to be able to call the police for help by these actions.  Not just by what you're reading about in the press either - but also by excluding our program from their trafficking outreach efforts for whatever reasons they've been handing out to cover up the simple reality of why they were really excluding us from a party we threw to begin with back in the 1980's.

Now I'm speaking to police, and other agencies, on a regular basis who are in a terrible quandary.   I bring this up for a case I can refer to going on in Florida where some guards are responsible for the death of an inmate.  The guards who blew the whistle on their actions were subjected to horrible retaliation.

I want to point you to this case in California where a witness was "lost" for 3 days in the jail.  The only officer I know of who was prosecuted in the matter was the one who brought this victim a phone to call for help.  I know that since our program was taken out of the loop of being connected to anyone coming out of sex work and allowing us to help to determine what type of services they needed because victims were going to be more open to us than they are with the authorities - I myself have found myself being completely shut out of being able to go to the authorities myself with information the victims are telling me about.

I want to point you if I might to this case recently in Irvine where two women were arrested in an international sex trafficking operation.  I want you to know I knew about those women years ago, and I also know they are not the top of the food chain based on what victims have told me.  I want you to know that I started trying to go to the authorities about the operation back in 2006.  Only I found myself being so shut out of law enforcement circles by people within the force trying to cover their own ass, officers like Officer Armendariz out of Arizona as another example, that its one reason I brought in a reporter to help us expose not only Chris Butler, but also "Operation Dollhouse" clear back in 2007.

So those women in Irvine not being arrested until a few months ago is another result I can show you of what's happened since these predators and "johns" were allowed to shut us out of the process here involving sex workers and "victims" of not just pimping, but sex trafficking.  A difference not being taught to your academy cadets currently because of again many men trying to "cover their own ass".

Another problem with this whole issue being left as it is - is that I've been getting an increasing number of phone calls every year from good solid decent cops, sheriffs, marshalls, and other law enforcement officers who are telling me they're leaving the field because of again cases like what's happened in Florida and this other "lost witness" case are illustrating - that the people who seem to be getting attacked aren't the criminals - but instead the "whistle blowers".  If anyone has seen films like the "Departed" then you know how hard it is right now to be able to even get a case investigated properly against someone like Whitey was because of the level of corruption within the system true - but it's more than that.  

The case of what Charlie Sheen was hiding, and the money he spent, and the influence he's had on California's treatment of prostitutes has been profound because he's had a lot of money and celebrity to back up what he was covering up for years about his HIV/AIDS status.  I say that because I believe he was one of the reasons behind the push to stop arresting juveniles for prostitution in California.  In fact, I think a lot of people who are again like those who victimized Celeste jumped on the bandwagon when it came to a good sounding idea to "stop arresting these girls" supposedly to "help them".

Not true.  First of all, it's only when they're arrested can they be tested for HIV/AIDS and their medical records made public so that statistics can be gathered on the amount of them infected for one thing.  Numbers which funding for services is completely dependent upon I"d like to add.  I'd also like to add this was supported by the AHF led by Michael Weinstein who I believe was supporting not having juveniles arrested and tested for HIV/AIDS again for political and financial reasons that had nothing to do with HIV/AIDS.  

Because we don't have any statistics for the numbers of juvenile prostitutes who have HIV/AIDS - then there's a great excuse here to not talk about the fact I'm now seeing numbers of sex workers, both adult and juveniles, across this country who are infected with this virus, and other STD's, GREATER than I used to see in the 1980's I'd like you to be aware of.

I believe the push to stop arresting them had more to do with the fact that once arrested than an investigation starts.  An investigation into who might be pimping and buying them for one thing.  An investigation which men like Charlie Sheen didn't want to come out in the press - as well as the men involved in this Celeste Guap case either.

Meaning that the "good old seasoned" cops who used to be able to take a cadet under their wing and help them out if they were to see another officer involved in such things as this Guap case reveal to us - are telling me they've been leaving the force for some time now in record numbers also because of how "upside down" things have become for a while now.  Again, I want you to think about the culture that men like Joohoon, Chris and Kemp have created in California alone over the last 20 years that all went into this Guap case happening.

A culture that needs to change and one that to change is going to require "re-involving" us with the issues here.  I say that from ground zero to witness protection also because of the way she was handled by victim services even being completely wrong.  This woman at no time was provided with access to ANYONE  who understood that the police force was going to be against her from the gate.  Including a series of events which happened which I believe was her being framed by these same men trying to cover their ass, and also a system trying to protect itself from her lawsuits, who were not putting her best interests FIRST.

Which is another reason why I believe our program was cut out of the Victim Services loop because otherwise there's no way she would have been allowed to be put on that plane as she was to Florida otherwise.  I would have stopped it immediately, and I would have put her instead into a local treatment program we use on our members we have come to know and trust over the years as having the services, staff, etc., who know how to properly treat someone in her situation as to her best interests.

I also think we need to open up a dialogue about what we're going to do in order to start training police officers about what to do when they see someone like Chris Butler in front of them not only involved in crime himself - but also then trying to suck them up into the whole thing as Chris did also.  I can show you grown active duty cops he had terrified of him - and then I ask you what you think prostitutes were feeling about the guy if grown active cops were scared to death of his power?  I can assure you that because there was no safe system in place for witnesses to what he was doing - that's why someone went to the press first about him to get something done to shut him down.

Again things have to change.  Just replacing people isn't changing anything as I think Mayor Libby might have learned after the 3rd guy she made Police Chief who had involvement with Celeste.  Things STILL aren't changing either.  I know my phone's not ringing about it.  I know that when we tried doing our own outreach campaign into the Oakland, Redding, etc., areas back in 2011 - we got so many threats by active duty police officers to myself and our members I had to call off the whole operation.  The problem with that is also this - would you  like to know how many young women have gone missing in that region who are suspected sex trafficking victims now?

Women who I might have been able to find if not for the threats and interference.  I say that because BEFORE, when we were actively working WITH law enforcement we used to find young victims in HOURS.  Routinely.  Not once in a blue moon.  We in fact had found so many juvenile victims through our hotline and our connections that a film was made about one of those case histories called "Fighting for my Daughter" with Lindsey Wagner playing a mother who had called me for help finding her daughter being held against her will by a pimp up in Canada.  A film made in 1995.  So yes there was a time when "working together" WAS WORKING.

So I'm writing you today to find out what can we do to open up a dialogue here?  I'd like to open up a dialogue about coming in preparing some trainings for these various offices on what we know about modern day domestic sex trafficking, not just "pimping" but actual organized sex trafficking operations.  The difference to us being the difference between that of a lone criminal who hangs out with other criminals vs. that of organized crime hence why the RICO Act changed things.

The Trafficking Act of 2000 also changed things but because this was like alcohol in that it was something the system/officers also partook in and were involved in also themselves - it's been a challenge for us to create a system where instead of looking only to the "outside" for the criminals in this issue we have to look at EVERYONE.  Including men with badges and offices as public defenders and on the bench even.

Which won't be accomplished by victims/survivors who are being put out there by groups trying to get federal grants I can assure you.  They won't want to risk the kind of "displeasure" talking about these issues 100 % honestly is going to bring down on them.  They won't risk their jobs nor their grants by being as honest as we need them to be in other words.

I'm not trying to get promoted.  I'm not trying to get a grant.  I'm not trying to organize a fund raiser.  I'm not trying to get a job.  The ONLY thing I'm concerned about right now is to make sure things like what happened to Celeste Guap, and others like Margo Compton, do not happen again.  That victims start knowing they can call the police for help - and not think their only options to find help is to go to the press like Celeste Guap did, as did the victims involved with Eliot Spitzer when his tape was leaked to the press for that reason.  I mean how does one get help when the person you have to get to help you is the prosecutor himself?  That's why those tapes were leaked about Spitzer starting his press attack - the victims didn't know they could reach out to us in other words and get help that way by bypassing him entirely.

You need more good cops.  Which you're losing I can assure you because many are seeing this type of corruption and abuse and feeling they have no recourse to do anything about it, and to protect themselves, they leave the force entirely.  I can point you as one example to a man like Claude Arnold.  That man was making amazing, good, solid, powerful arrests into powerful trafficking figures in this region of southern California and then WHAM!  Suddenly he's out working for an auction house?  I can't speak for this man personally - but I can read those news clips and I can see what happened there plain as day.

So I'm writing to your offices again hoping now with time you've started to see why we need to start talking to each other for one thing.  I'd like to set up some kind of workshop or conference where we can all sit down and talk about these issues together as a team about what can be done to change things. 

I'd also like to talk about some trainings I used to do for the police academies and other "in services" i used to do to help raise awareness about what sex trafficking looks like, how it operates, and also what to do about it when finding it, even when it involves someone these people work with.  

I can be reached at (702) 488-1127 any day after noon.  Thank you for listening to our concerns and desires.

Re: Truth in Media's Connection to a True Democracy and a Free Press

Dear Concerned:

I'm writing this letter essentially to the attention of the FCC, but I'm also addressing it to related media organizations. I have been writing for years to the attention of Ted Wheeler as the FCC's previous Chairman only to receive no response back. However, over the years I haven't b een able to provide the documentation I now believe I have collected to show not only is the “collective wool” being pulled over the public's eyes on certain subjects such as domestic sex trafficking, but that this “wool” is being used to very damaging ends.

Ends which I can also document right on down to what I believe involved a murder of a man which might not have been totally in “self defense” as the trial of Neal Falls was carried out essentially in the media since his death was denied any proper investigation into his death otherwise. I say this because I received a phone call on our hotline for Sex Workers Anonymous not long after saying he was in fact “murdered” during the time of the media buzz that followed the case. A phone call I tried to take the police, and the ensuing media campaign, only to be completely rebuffed and ignored. Something I assure you had this happened pre-1995 I don't think I would have received the same “cold shoulder”.


I haven't known what to do about the things I've been seeing, nor do I really know now even still what to do about what I'm witnessing in the media other than I've been told repeatedly I “need to file a complaint with the FCC” about it. At one point I had decided to sue Relativity Media and A&E for a “defamacast” for their show “8 Minutes” only to have them completely yank the show off the air and off the internet entirely when they got my demand letter. I thought that was the end of it UNTIL I saw those shows being used to fund raise and affect legislation down in the midwest just a few months ago.

However, for me to file “a complaint” with the FCC about these variously faked news articles would involve so many individual complaints spanning over a period of years. But I decided to start doing it anyway. As I started to do this however, I realized that taken individually, and not viewed over “time”, one doesn't really understand the damage this “fake” media is doing. Which I don't believe would be something which could have been accomplished on this level had not the Telecommunications Act of 1995 passed which is when everything changed.

To explain to you what I mean in “real world” terms you might grasp, you would first have to know more about who I am. My name is Jody Williams and in 1984 I was witnessing what has now been called “Iran Contra” up close and personal being as I was born and raised in Los Angeles in the 60's.

I soon learned there was nowhere for victims of what is now called “domestic sex trafficking” to go for help back in the 70's and 80's because we literally had no where to turn being as we were branded “criminals” by the state or non-existent at all. We had no witnesses to our defense being they'd have to not only incriminate themselves to do so, align themselves with a “criminal” - but further endanger their careers and personal lives to do so. The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980's had made anyone and everyone scared to even admit us into their homes for safety.

Forcing me in my view to take matters into my own hands by taking an old warehouse and turning it into what I have later learned was the first “safe house” for adults in this country. I say “adults” as a qualifier because the first one for juveniles had been created by Lois Lee with Children of the Night. It was truly a “war zone” back then and when she took up helping kids – I tried to do what I could to help adults. I installed a lot of security and surveillance equipment on this warehouse to protect everyone being as we were being attacked literally by LAPD, the FBI, CIA, as well as pimps, gang members, and other assorted criminals.

Only I didn't realize how our government deals with people getting in their way often is to “frame” them to the level they went. I had some idea these people would attempt to frame me so I took great steps to make sure everything I had done was “legal” to avoid this potential. I didn't even drink or use drugs back then out of fear it would be used against me.

This didn't stop these people from framing me anyway as a “pimp” in a very high profiled arrest in 1984 where the media dubbed me “The High Tech Madam”. The nickname was to explain all of the security and surveillance equipment in this warehouse in the news at a time when my attorney was advising me not to speak to the media to defend or explain myself.

Since there wasn't one shred of evidence against me and I had done nothing I was accused of or even wrong for that matter, the police arrested my mother and charged her with “pimping” me. The grounds? A photo of her handing me a bucket of KFC chicken and me handing her a $20 bill.

Yep that ridiculous. Evidently the “pimping” law states “receipt of money from a prostitute”. Since I was considered a “prostitute” that was their grounds for arresting my mother as a felony pimp.

But it was silly enough for us to fight them back anyway. To which they then threatened to take away my mother's disability pension from the county of Los Angeles and also to arrest my then 70 year old grandmother for “pimping” me if I didn't accept a plea bargain. Something for which at her age I didn't think she'd survive the booking process.

Now I ask you how am I truly going to defend myself anyway had I choose to instead fight this case when I know that the minute I explain what that warehouse was set up for in reality - some men in suits were going to show up claiming “national security” and shutting me down? That was if I lived long enough to see a courtroom . As it was my attorney was already receiving threats from the police/government to “back away” from helping me as well as death threats to me. They'd confiscated all of my money and belongings so I couldn't hire another attorney if I wanted to as I was left penniless. So I wasn't left with a lot of options back then.

So in 1987, I was cleared off probation and my attorney cleared me to speak in the media about the “truth” of what was involved in my arrest you can read about at www.hightechmadam.com It was after realizing this approach of a safe house wasn't going to work, I reached out to consult with then mayor Tom Bradley, Sheriff Block, Chief Gates, and California Attorney General Edwin Meese. They had witnessed what was going on also – but realized there weren't any laws on the books to help us then either. It was with their advice and counsel they allowed me to see that the laws regarding prostitution was not going to change, and also in defense as to why they wouldn't change.

Their advice also helped me to form the program originally called “Prostitutes Anonymous” and the related hotline. This was created as a 12 step group in order to take advantage of laws “grand fathered” in by Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous for one thing such as confidentiality to members. The other was because it would be allowed to be used as an “alternative to incarceration” for those people who were in fact “victims” vs. true “criminals”. With their help, we went and and created the first ever official “alternative sentencing and diversion” program for sex workers in Los Angeles, California.

Some of you may not remember what it was like back then – but the idea of “domestic sex trafficking” was so foreign back then there wasn't even a name or word for it yet. Identical to how this country didn't have any type of system set in place to fight organized crime either before the RICO Act came to pass.

But the RICO Act wouldn't have even come to pass had it not been for some real life mobsters coming forward with their story in the media such as when Joe Valachi was one of the first men to start talking to the outside world that the “mob” was in fact a real living breathing entity in this country. Which watching how the “mafia” was birthed into federal recognition, gave me a template on how to do the same with respect to American modern sex trafficking.

A problem which had the same challenges also because who before the RICO Act could also have come forward to testify against them either without (1) being branded as “crazy” and/or (2) incriminating themselves? Just as the only true witnesses to the Italian mobsters back then were only those involved in some criminal fashion – so too was the challenge we had with modern domestic sex trafficking.
Watching how films like “The Valachi Papers” and even the “Godfather” changed things, and using this issue as a model, I stepped up on that first national talk show stage of a Sally Jesse Raphael show in 1987 to speak. Not just to enlighten the public about the realities of the sex industry that wasn't being told in media, but also to clear my name. I did not want to go down in history as a “pimp” and that warehouse to be branded a “whore house” by the media for the rest of my life.

The TRUTH about everything led me on a path which carried this whole country into seeing the Trafficking Act of 2000 passed. Up until 1995, I did so much TV, radio and press about the issues connected to these things – that I literally couldn't walk into a gas station in Omaha, Nebraska without the cashier going “hey aren't you that Prostitutes Anonymous lady?”

But in 1995 everything flipped upside down when the Telecommunications Act of 1995 passed. Only I didn't know it as that then. All I knew was things changed suddenly overnight and I had no idea why by 1996 I couldn't get arrested on TV figuratively speaking. If you look at some of the news and video clips I have up at my site – you'll see they come to an abrupt halt in 1995.

Let me explain the power of the truth in media for a moment. In 1988, Joe Conforte “bought” himself a rigged study which falsely made it appear that “no LEGAL brothel prostitute has HIV/AIDS”. Joe Conforte is the man who opened the first legal brothel in Nevada back in the 1970's – the Mustang Ranch. He had decided to expand this empire into California using HIV/AIDS as his marketing platform. So armed with his “study”, he deposited $1,000,000 into the top PR firm in the country and embarked on a campaign to get the laws in California changed to allow him to “open shop” there.

Only the FCC required media to run “counter” opinions on anything regarding legislation. No one wanted to go up against Joe because they were scared to death of him. This is a man who had shot down a famous boxer in cold blood with a cop for a witness and didn't spend one day in jail. So I stepped up and was the only person who would go “toe to toe” with him in the media all that year.

He lost.

That's the power of “truth” in the media's eye. (Which by the way is why Dennis Hof won't share a stage with me today in my opinion.) So I've witnessed this first hand back then and I'm witnessing it now in the negative. I say that because in the last couple of years, I have documented the “life cycle” of “fake media” which has been created by people with money that has affected everything from legislation that's on the books now, to the outcome of lawsuits, to even now as I said the death of a man who I think needs to be investigated further than the trial he got in the “bought and paid for” media.

Why do I care about Neal Falls? I don't. But because of him being falsely attributed to the deaths of some female prostitutes in this country I am because it's allowing their REAL murderers to keep getting off scott free for one thing. For another, the whole story around him has created a completely false idea that if you're a sex worker and you shoot a “john” in self-defense that you're going to get the same “heroes welcome” as “Heather” did and sadly in reality that's just not the case. As someone who has been a paralegal also for 30 years now I can assure you that is NOT how real hookers are greeted by cops when they arrive to a scene to find a dead “john”.

We have a real problem with the police and racism in this country also. Yet since all of this “fake media” has been being produced by the religious right in this country it has been a smoke screen for creating more racism in the police academies, the courtrooms, and more importantly it's created a new form of modern “lynching” of the African American male and minorities.

All of which is resulting not only in more police murders of African American men we haven't seen since the 1980's and this kind of thing was being done back then also, but also that of sexual abuse of women within jails/prisons, and our legal system, which has just skyrocketed in recent years, and is also serving to take focus off the real criminals who are literally being offered immunity by our government when caught sex trafficking red handed as is the case with Joohoon David Lee.

So yes I can contact the FCC and bombard them with 1000 individual complaints against completely fabricated stories such as the ones I've seen in the Review Journal, Buzzfeed, the Daily Dot, Daily Beast, CNN, Fox, CBS, etc., who seem to run most of these fabricated stories, or the “fake” reality shows I've uncovered more than once now on Bravo, A&E and Discover (who by the way I can now document have a financial interest in such faked stories), but more frighteningly is the way it's spread now into so called “public” broadcasting such as the fabrication I heard in April on Nevada Public Radio involving “Game Over”. A supposedly “survivor led” program out of Eureka, California who was allowed to bring completely fabricated racism inspiring sex trafficking training into a cadet academy there from what I heard broadcast.

Or I can start opening up a dialogue with your companies as to what I've seen being done with these “fabrications”. Such as the awards of millions of dollars in grant money to imaginary programs that don't exist in reality, conning people out of money through fake fund raisers, the deception of judges in courtrooms unlike anything in history (such as the largest sex trafficking case in our history being a complete fabrication), laws being passed into legislation based upon completely fabricated campaigns to actually support sex traffickers' operations on the same level as when Pablo Escobar was writing laws on extradition while claiming to be “legitimate business man”, and again the fact that we still are offering immunity to sex traffickers caught red handed such as we did with Joohoon David Lee.

All while I can't get anyone in the media to even talk about these things because they're too busy blowing up the fake stories bought and paid for by these people I can show have financial interests in such matters, or who are being supported entirely by the involved parties money in the first place. Why? Because I've also watched as these “fabricated heroes” have been now testifying in front of Congress, the Ethics Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, and other such people who are deciding upon the laws and budgets of this country. In other words, it's now affecting history.

I believe these people have also created a “monopoly” with respect to sex trafficking that protects themselves and I have enough documentation now to prove it. No different by the way than when the NFL was exposed as controlling the medical community to cover their own ass with respect to liability lawsuits you can reference more about in the film “Concussion”. Only I don't have a Dr. Omalu with the highest of credentials to stand up for our truth – all we have is “survivors”. Voices that are being completely drowned out of all of the discussions about them by the very financial interests exploiting them, as well as their “consumers” who own these media outlets in most cases these days. Steve Sassa was one prime example in control of Hearst Media for some years, now in control over Telemundo.

What's going on now is like handing over control of the media to Al Capone during Prohibition or to Hitler during WWII. You think I'm wrong? Let's compare numbers of Jews, and others, murdered by the Nazi's and sex trafficking victims, as well as prostitutes, than shall we?
That's where we are right now with this. Meaning again I can bombard you with 1000's of individual complaints – or we can open up a dialogue about this issue. Your call.

Jody Williams
