Only in Florida: Wait, There's A Stripper Fee?

No Government Fees For Stripping!

In my column Only in Florida, I'll be taking you down to the Sunshine State for the latest and greatest sex stories that can only be found in the craziest state in the union.

As Americans it is our duty to constantly debate, argue, and sometimes slam doors when discussing taxes and what there should and shouldn't be a government fee for. Yes, that is the beauty of democracy and like it or not, democracy can be messy. Sure, you might not like to pay taxes or fees, but we do need roads, schools, and other services, but one thing we can all agree on is there shouldn't be a fee for strippers. And if you work for the government, don't steal the stripper fees because someone is going to notice.

Florida resident Anita Pedemey was recently arrested for stealing the $75 fee for Adult Entertainment licenses and it wasn't just a one time thing. She managed to steal around $27,000 bucks. That's over 360 fees, which there are 360 or more strippers out there who could get in trouble because Miss Pedemey stole from them. It kind of breaks my heart. And Miss Pedemey wasn't doing it because she had a moral code or anything, her reason for taking the money was a little closer to home:

“I’ve been taking money; stealing money from the Adult Entertainment licenses for about six months,” she said in the report. “My husband was spending a lot of money in Home Depot. I knew it was wrong.”

Stripping is a noble profession and if someone wants to take their clothes off for strangers while dancing to "Poor Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard then we should we doing whatever we can to help them. Not adding to their hassle by throwing in some kind of government fee. This, my friends, is true government overreach.
