California Legislature-Loitering

WIENER

SACRAMENTO — California Gov. Gavin Newsom, on Friday, signed a new state law that will stop police from arresting people for loitering for prostitution, an issue that divided sex workers and advocates during a rare nine-month delay since state lawmakers passed the bill last year.

“To be clear, this bill does not legalize prostitution,” Newsom said in a signing message. “It simply revokes provisions of the law that have led to disproportionate harassment of women” and transgender adults, he said, nothing that Black and Latino women are particularly affected.

Now Newsom (the POS) (IMHO) can pimp himself out down at the gay bars, without any worries. ;)
