The Illinois House passed a bill yesterday that will allow prostitutes to sue their pimps. I've been following this story, but I never thought it would go this far. I'm sure Rep. Constance Howard, who sponsored the bill, has good intentions, BUT... isn't prostitution illegal? So aren't we legitimizing it somewhat by allowing sex workers to file lawsuits against their employers? Should we let johns sue prostitutes for giving them STDs or for "poor service?"
Maybe we should allow drug buyers to sue dealers when they get diluted dope. A friend of mine bought a bag of oregano at the high school state wrestling championships thinking that it was pot. How about a Contraband Consumer Protection Act for him?
