Lap Dances to stay

Yesterday was election day in Arizona and 8 other states. The main focus of the elections was obviously the primaries, however, in the City of Scottsdale, a very interesting measure was on the ballot: the passage Proposition 401 would have mandated a buffer zone between client and dancer in Scottsdale strip clubs. Effectively banning lap dances. Well the good people of Scottsdale rejected the measure. This whole episode (Scottsdale city council v. Jenna Jamison) will probably do a great deal for Scottsdale strip clubs. Seriously, in trying to destroy the strip club business, the city council provided constant media attention to scottsdale clubs and probably guaranteed their survival.

In other local election news, the election period begins in earnest. AZ doesn't have many interesting/close races. According to the electoral prognosticators at Cook Political Report and Rothenberg Political Report, there is only one really competitive seat (House seat AZ8), and a couple of leaners (AZ5 - my district - and AZ1). The senate seat is quite interesting as the duelling behemoths [Jim Pederson (D) and Jon Kyl (R) ]try to out do each other on TV. The Governors race seems to be incumbent Janet "only Janet in ads" Napolitano's to lose, facing conservative Len Munsil.

Though not many seats are attracting much national attention, it shall be a very interesting two months, as the two parties try to out do each other. Especially watching - as I shall - from behind the scenes.
