I have to say that I advocated for this several times while I was there but could never pull it off. Now that I’ve left, guess what? There will be STRIPPERS at the Progress Ohio offices. Great:

(Columbus) ? Entertainers from across the state will gather in Columbus for a news conference on Tuesday, May 1, at 10 a.m. The event will take place in the offices of Progress Ohio, 265 S. Third Street, Columbus.

Dancers formed the grassroots organization ?Dancers for Democracy? to try and combat Senate Bill 16, a measure that would limit the hours of adult businesses and ban patrons from coming within six feet of any nude or semi-nude entertainers. The six-foot rule will cause wages to drop off dramatically and force many of the dancers into minimum wage jobs, said Charity Fickisen, a Columbus dancer and chairwoman of the new organization.

Those who violate the rule could be found guilty of a first-degree misdemeanor ? the same level of offense for negligent homicide or menacing by stalking.


  • …I just hope they won’t be offering any “massages”. Damn…kidding. I’m giggling. Can you tell?

  • I think Plunderbund needs to have a reporter on-site. Where’s my official Plunderbund “Press” ID?

  • The jokes! So many jokes! I can’t take it. Must…walk…away…

  • #2: This is obviously a ploy to get us all there. Tell them Eric sent ya. LOL. Now, maybe they’ll partner with this group for everything to increase the coverage.

    Template: “Progress Ohio has partnered with adult entertainment and activist group ‘Dancers for Democracy’ to speak out against __________.”

    …walking away now. Will check the sandbox later.

  • The news conference will include a demonstration of the six-foot rule.
