Masquerading as a progressive initiative, San Franciscos Proposition K would decriminalize pimps who the measures proponents call business managers.

Proposition K is a trafficker's dream. To pimps and johns, it would declare open season on women and children, putting those involved in prostitution in even more danger and removing them even farther from urgently needed help. Prostitution is an extremely dangerous activity for those in it. They are not any safer if they are offered for sale just like Kleenex, which is what this ballot measure would do.

Prop K directs San Francisco Police Department and the District Attorneys office to refuse to enforce the State of Californias prostitution laws. These sections include laws against traffickers and against those involved in exploiting children. Non-enforcement of these laws would put San Franciscans us at risk, and send a warm welcome out to pimps, traffickers, and johns.

Prop K would cripple prosecution of sex traffickers and hobble human rights groups and social service agencies in helping people escape prostitution. Women, children, and immigrants -- the vast majority of those in prostitution -- will be abandoned, along with their human rights.

San Francisco Chronicle editorial: Prohibiting the Police Department from conducting sex-traffic investigations that involve a racial profiling component (certain countries in Asia and Eastern Europe are disproportionately involved in the trade) will shock - allow sex trafficking to flourish. http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi...

Ken Garcia, San Francisco Examiner: Mary Ellen (Maxine) Doogan is a convicted pimp who ran an escort prostitution agency in Seattle a little more than a decade ago. Doogan was in Superior Court in San Francisco September 11, 2008 with her attorney, Philip Horne, trying to get a judge to block voter information for the ballot pamphlet that would have let people know what Prop. K will do if passed. The view from the experts: It would be very, very bad for prostitutes and very, very good for pimps and sex traffickers. http://www.sfexaminer.com/opinion/col...

When the judge ruled against Doogan, he drily noted that there was an issue of freedom of speech. http://noonk.net/pressreleases/51-pre...
