Take a real good look at the commercial. The person she has speaking for her first is Karen Hughes. Yes the same Karen Hughes who is no longer the multiple head of N. Las Vegas Vice, head of N. Las Vegas Internal Affairs, and head of N. Las Vegas police that I filed a formal complaint with Internal Affairs about. You can search my blog to find my post about those complaints and Karen further here if you'd like.
Want to know why all three? So that I couldn't figure out who to complain to about her, and other police officers, who were actually involved in sex trafficking that's why. With Chief Gillispie having finally stepped down, along with 15 other officers, with him, for corruption, I mean who am I supposed to go to with complaints about officers involved in the sex trafficking when that very person is the heads of all of those departments? https://nevadastatepersonnelwatch.wordpress.com/2012/11/24/fifteen-members-of-las-vegas-sheriff-douglas-gillespies-organization-have-been-served-with-a-federal-complaint/
Only one ride through Las Vegas from where the officers came into town, to where these houses were located, would have shown you that they passed by at least a dozen commercial massage parlors on the way to the houses. But note the key word here "cab driver".
Why? Because the trafficking operation in Nevada was/is set up so that Mandarin speaking cab drivers would pick up Mandarin speaking businessmen coming out of the airport with tickets in hand from China. Those were the ONLY men allowed into these houses of prostitution to keep the police out. Which is why I had arranged for this reporter on that case to make that raid that day - none of us could get access to those women without an arrest. An arrest we weren't getting to happen while Karen was in charge of the Vice Dept. at that time because she was covering for everyone.
I knew they took over the cab companies because I've lived here in Nevada since 1996 helping trafficking victims. When I first moved here, one of the first things I did was make friends with local cab drivers. Victims of sex trafficking are kept drugged up most of the time remember? Their pimps keep their ID from them. If they're not American, they keep their visa's even. So how do they get around town if they can't drive?
For YEARS cab drivers would bring victims of sex trafficking, and/or prostitutes who wanted out of the game, to our doorstep for help. It was simple - if a woman is getting into your cab in a highly emotional and drugged state who is clearly a prostitute and is crying to you because her pimp just beat the shit out of her and she wants to get the hell out of there - the drivers all knew to bring them to Jody's doorstep.
That was until 2007. I remember the year because it was after my mother had died, and we gave the press conference you can read about at www.hightechmadam.com about sex trafficking existing in Nevada. A press conference I'd like to add Catherine, nor Karen, were neither involved with. Go on - look. Do you see their names as being in attendance at this press conference which was the first to alert the public about sex trafficking in Nevada given?
Up until that point, I knew all of the cab drivers by their first names. I knew the publisher of the cab drivers' trade journal who used to run free public service announcements for our group alerting new drivers to what we did. Word spread that if a woman needed to escape to bring her to my door and we'd take care of her. I can't tell you how many 2:00 a.m. drop-off's we had when the women would get off a shift at the local strip club and decide they just didn't want to go home anymore.
But then suddenly it stopped. I began to wonder what was happening so I called a guy who was a supervisor at the major cab company we had always worked with to find out he'd been fired. I then started calling all the cab drivers we'd worked with that I knew their name and number and found they were no longer working as drivers either.
When I got the one supervisor I used to call "Big Don" because he used to be a professional wrestler, he told me that a strip club owner had come in and bought out the cab companies. Then he'd fired every driver who had ever given us a drop of a victim - and then told any other drivers that he had the GPS on the cars, the cameras going on the inside, and if anyone was caught so much as even calling us on the phone to come help one of these women that they would be fired immediately.
While all of this was going on, we had tried working with Catherine as Attorney General under the mistaken idea because she was a female she'd give a shit. As a matter of fact, when Aubrey had decided she wanted to file what would have been the first ever case of sex trafficking with respect to someone who had been forced to work within a legal brothel, we contacted Catherine's office to discuss the case. She refused to talk to us about the case at all. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk/2013/07/08/hear-from-a-nevada-brothel-prostitute
When she launched her so called "law to help sex trafficking victims" in 2013, AB67, of course I asked to be put on the list of events around the state to discuss the law. Especially after reading it. This law had NOTHING to do with helping victims. If anything, it was going to get victims murdered. More than that, it's a thinly disguised "shake down" law if you ask me. Giving the police the right to "ease drop" without a warrant, and then go in and ask for a fine EVEN WHEN THERE'S NO CHARGES BEEN FILED.
If she's "done so much to help crack down on sex trafficking" where's the charges? The police executed a search warrant on Molly Moll but yet NOT ONE ARREST. Huh? http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/feds-expand-racketeering-probe-rapperreality-tv-star-mally-mall
Is the reason because of a lack of victim testimony maybe? Victim testimony they don't have because no one in Nevada's police department, or Attorney General's office, will return our phone calls? Why would they when they aren't even doing anything when they have one of their own saying that John Hambrick "bullied his way" into being speaker of the house and STILL THEY DO NOTHING? http://knpr.org/knpr/2015-02/assemblyman-edwards-im-being-bullied
Couldn't be this is part of an organized campaign funded by Sheldon Adelson, owner of the Review Journal, to expand legalized prostitution in the state where he owns a non-union casino now could it? http://www.businessinsider.com/sands-macau-prostitution-2012-6
Where's the charges against Snoop Dogg who ADMITTED he trafficked for a year, did it through Nevada, and for which we have a victim we rescued in Nevada willing to press charges? Only we can't because we can't get anyone from the authorities to FILE. http://deadspin.com/snoop-lion-says-he-used-to-be-a-pimp-for-pro-athletes-498642042 All of the evidence by the way appears on Twitter on Montana Fishburne's account. So all the evidence to file trafficking charges against Snoop exist - but our letters to Catherine's office asking why she won't file, and that we have witnesses we've rescued willing to testify, have gone UNANSWERED.
Go on - read AB67. https://www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/77th2013/Bills/AB/AB67_EN.pdf Read it carefully and then tell me how on earth that law helps victims. ESPECIALLY when our group was getting nowhere trying to get cases filed against traffickers with her office. So when she announced the hearings about the law being passed, we of course asked to be put on the mailing list to be notified of these events so we could participate. Not just me mind you, but actual survivors of NEVADA sex trafficking this law would have an impact on.
I've posted on another post in this blog that not only did her office refuse to give me any notices about these hearings, but she further insisted on being removed from our mailing list as well. This is a woman who mind you back in 2007 I was trying to tell her someone was connected to Operation Dollhouse with Immigration who was ignoring me.
Then after complaining finally to the Office of Professional Responsibility BECAUSE I COULD NOT GET KAREN HUGHES NOR CATHERINE NOR THE CHIEF OF POLICE to listen to me - I had to go to the OPR to file the complaint which then resulted in the arrest of Joohoon David Lee. A case where Catherine's name appears nowhere. https://www.justice.gov/usao-cdca/pr/former-hsi-special-agent-pleads-guilty-taking-bribes-korean-businessman-being
By the way - do you know what Joohoon is doing now he's a man convicted of using his office to sex traffick women through California and Nevada? Including DESTROYING a local Las Vegas business in his campaign to cover up his tracks and be a trafficker? HE'S DRIVING A LIMO IN LAS VEGAS NOW ON PROBATION. By the way, most cab companies in Las Vegas are also the same as the limo companies such as Bell Transportation.
Catherine lied to the press about AB67 for one thing. She told the press that "there was no opposition to AB67" when there clearly was. Not only did we send her a letter registering our objection to the law, but we also had members of SWA appear at the hearings.
Aubrey testified at the hearing against the law, and even read a letter on behalf of those who couldn't get up to Carson City to register their testimony against the law to Catherine. This is clearly reflected in the videotape of the hearings. I have the disk of the hearing if you'd like to see what REALLY happened instead of Catherine's lies to the press and other people about what happened. Aubrey then went up to Catherine who told her "she'd look into" the filing of a case against her pimp who had trafficked her that she NEVER FOLLOWED UP ON.
Not only did she then refuse to return Aubrey's, or my calls, to file this complaint against her trafficker, who was threatening to use her children in kiddie porn by the way, but she then again lied to the press saying nothing about our letter, our objection to the law, and nothing about the fact we'd asked for her help against these traffickers. Aubrey also swore to me she saw Catherine taking a check for $17,000 from Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch, at this hearing.
If Catherine cares so much about helping trafficking victims - then why doesn't one single survivor appear in her ads? BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T HELP US THAT'S WHY. Let 'me point to Uber and her keeping Uber out of Nevada. For one thing, that's jobs our survivors could be working at. Many of them now are making a living out of Uber in other states. It's one job where the traffickers can't get them fired because they can't get physical access to them once they leave. http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/08/02/billionaire-koch-brothers-take-aim-at-nevada-senate-hopeful-catherine-cortez/
But it's more than the jobs Uber can provide survivors who need the type of work Uber would provide. Yes they're arrested a few guys for using cabs in connection with organized trafficking. But that didn't stop the SYSTEM. The reason why racketeering laws were invented was because organized crime is like a wagon wheel.
If you take out one or two spokes, the wheel still turns. There's a reason why the cab companies want to remain in power in this state and it's not about money. It's about sex trafficking and the control having cabs, and the ability to threaten to fire drivers who help victims escape, offers. Having Uber in Nevada breaks up the control the traffickers have over victims on both levels - from providing them a way to work to providing them a way to escape.
Something Catherine has blocked from happening in this state. Something that she might know if she talked to someone who WORKS WITH VICTIMS RATHER THAN JUST FUND RAISES AND GRAND STANDS! Catherine is running for Senate for one reason and one reason only - legalized prostitution. The REAL traffickers in this country are trying to use the logic that legalized prostitution is the best way to eliminate sex trafficking. If that was the case, then please explain why Amsterdam shut down it's windows district in 2007? https://www.rnw.org/archive/amsterdams-red-light-district-ripe-export-0
Explain the level of trafficking in Germany where it's legal. http://www.lse.ac.uk/geographyAndEnvironment/whosWho/profiles/neumayer/pdf/Article-for-World-Development-_prostitution_-anonymous-REVISED.pdf
Explain New Zealand where it's legal. http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2015/07/31/3686698/sex-work-legalize/
In fact, name me one case of organized sex trafficking that Catherine's even filed in the state of Nevada.
According to my research, I can't even FIND a case against traffickers Karen Hughes executed. I type into Google "sex trafficking arrests Karen Hughes" and come back with ZIP. Here look https://www.google.com/#q=karen+hughes+arrests+sex+traffickers
I lobbied Catherine's office many times that their resource list for help for victims on her page as Attorney General was useless. I gave her a step by step explanation about how those resources not only didn't provide help to sex trafficking victims in Nevada, but that they especially didn't help those in the strip clubs, massage parlors, or legal brothels. She not only refused to change this resource list - I'd like to know why the strip clubs, massage parlors, and the legal brothels in Nevada STILL are not required to post the National Trafficking Hotline in them just as California has passed already with SB1193? Again, you can search my blog further to see where I've written her and written her and written her - only to get NO RESPONSE.
In other words, Catherine won't speak to the FOUNDER of the movement, the FOUNDER of Sex Workers Anonymous, and she wants to call herself a "sex trafficking crusader"? Really?
In fact, under Catherine as Attorney General, the brothels have just expanded their reach outside of the tiny counties they're physically in. BEFORE Catherine was Attorney General, the brothels were limited to advertising only locally, and also only seeing customers who visited the brothels physically.
However, under Catherine's regime as Attorney General, the brothels are now advertising outside of the counties such as Pahrump, Nye, Storey, etc. In states such as Oakland for example where not only does Dennis have billboards all over, but also we now have heard of the Oakland sex scandal involved guess what? MORE POLICE OFFICERS! http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/03/us/oakland-police-sex-scandal/
But further than this, the brothels are now allowed to send "outcalls" which they couldn't do before Catherine. Meaning that all a client has to do is visit the brothels one time to set up an account. Then after that first visit, a prostitute can be sent to him anywhere in the world from there legally. Yes, this expansion of their ability to operate now anywhere in the WORLD is thanks to Catherine Cortez Masto.
Now with the link already established that sex trafficking is at it's WORST where there is legalized prostitution, and with Catherine's regime allowing the expansion of the legal brothels, then please please explain to me how on earth she's being allowed to make the claim that has been doing ANYTHING to help sex trafficking in these commercials?
Which is why I'm going to be seeing about filing a formal complaint with the FCC about her ads shortly for making false claims to the public. I'll also be further researching if there's any other type of committees, boards, etc., that I can file a complaint against her for these false claims in her ads.
PLEASE DON'T FALL FOR THIS.
I was fighting the brothels back in 1988 as you can see here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUrAI2Ob4zA
If you are opposed to sex trafficking, and consider yourself an "abolitionist" DO NOT SUPPORT CATHERINE CORTEZ MASTO running for Senate.
Don't believe me. Don't believe the hype or press. Go and look for yourself and tell me what has she done for us to help us since being in office?
As a matter of fact, we have testimony from people who have told us that they were told they would be "immune from prosecution for fraud" with their fraudulent fund raising using sex trafficking as their platform because Catherine was using their efforts to get "dollar matching" funds.
If I'm wrong, then tell me why all these people were complaining to her to investigate pastor Troy Martinez, whose documentary on "sex trafficking" in Nevada by the way COMPLETELY AVOIDS the strip clubs, massage parlors, and the legal brothels in Nevada where even Bob Herbert of the NY Times went out and independently verified my statement of it existing there in the highest concentrations is in fact true. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/divisions-found-effort-stop-sex-trafficking-las-vegas A fact which angered Oscar Goodman so severely he physically threatened Bob Herbert? http://www.alternet.org/story/61859/vegas_mayor_threatens_to_kill_n.y._times_columnist_after_anti-sex-trade_column
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THIS WOMAN.
