Strippers to the Rescue–Again

As another state looks at cutting their budget in these tight times–New York Governor David Peterson has proposed $11 million in program cutbacks for after school programs–at least one local strip clubs have stepped up to try and help out.

Illusion Gentleman’s Club on Long Island is starting to charge a voluntary surcharge on admission, funds from which will go to help restore some of the after school activities. Former “Long Island Lolita” Amy Fisher will be among those dancing for the weekend.

A stripper pole tax was introduced in Texas in 2007, and has so far raised more than $13.6 million. I wonder if local governments have considered using this type of tax to fund new sports stadiums?
