So...Is This An Ad for Craigslist?

Down in the Great Cesspool that is Florida, the Polk County Sheriff confirms what many of us have known for quite a while now. That is, if you are looking to have sex with a better-than-average looking pregnant prostitute, then craigslist is the place to go. Here's the story:
The Polk Sheriff County Sheriff's Office launched a sting over the weekend called Operation Hot Date. Undercover detectives arrested 34 people, including alleged prostitutes and their pimps who were advertising on Craigslist. They came to Polk from Tampa, Orlando, and out the state.

At a press conference on Monday, Sheriff Grady Judd called Craigslist a one-stop shop for all your prostitution needs.

"This is a public health issue. We know historically that prostitutes spread HIV and AIDS," Judd said.
Lets get one thing out of the way before we go where we all know this is going (the mugshots). I've spent time in Florida. Lots of time. I've had sex in Florida. Specifically, sex that I didn't have to pay for. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Prostitutes spreading diseases are the least of your worries. Avoiding a STD while spending any amount of significant time in Florida would be like trying to stay dry on the Titanic. Futile effort. Doesn't matter who you are fucking. Trust me on this one.

Now for the pictures...Which gets me back to original thrust of this post. There are some decent looking hookers in the bunch selling their services for some pretty fair prices. I'm not sure this is anything but an advertisement for the marketplace of craigslist. From The Smoking Gun:
SEPTEMBER 15--Charging that Craigslist remains a "one-stop shop for all your prostitution needs," a Florida sheriff yesterday announced the arrest of 28 women who allegedly advertised sexual services on the popular online classifieds site. Dubbed "Operation Hot Date," the undercover police action also netted several pimps who worked with the alleged hookers, said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. The women, pictured in the mug shots on the following pages, offered a variety of sexual acts carrying prices between $125 and $800. Two of the alleged hookers who arrived for appointments with undercover officers were pregnant, and a third arrived with fur-lined handcuffs.
The first page of mugshots is definitely the cream of the crop with page 3 not far behind. I'm not saying any of these ladies will be crowned Queen Nicotina at the local county fair, but it's still an impressive field all things considered.

P.S. I've covered the lunacy of the War on Craigslist with a more (relatively speaking) serious tone here. Click on the craigslist label for even more craigslist goodness.
