League of Young Voters Revises Position on Prop K

A member of the League of Young Voters, famous for their Pissed Off Voters Guide (which was very well-distributed yesterday around City Hall in San Francisco) writes to apologize for the incomplete assessment they made of Prop K.

Their guide was revised online this morning:

UPDATE 11/4: Our original write-up of Prop K above wasn’t very good and didn’t reflect the full debate we had. We always meant to expand on this, but we never got around to it. Here are some of the other issues we discussed:
– We all support decriminalizing prostitution, but we split on whether or not Prop K is the right way to implement it.
– A strong argument for Prop K is that it will reduce the spread of STDs because currently, prostitutes are afraid to carry condoms because the police can use them as evidence against them.
– Some of us oppose Prop K because it doesn’t provide enough structure. They think that if we’re going to decriminalize prostitution we should do it Amsterdam or Vegas style with designated zoning areas for brothels, regulations, testing, taxation, etc. Legalizing street trade seems sketchy.
– We’re concerned about the human trafficking issue, but we get the feeling that Prop K’s opponents are using that as a scare tactic. We don’t feel like we have definitive information about how this will impact trafficking.

Please check out the comments below for more perspectives on Prop K. We’re sorry we didn’t do a better job of researching this one. If there weren’t 33 other propositions on the ballot, we’d like to think we would have. Our bad.

Please leave a comment with your thoughts and suggestions for voters, and thanks to the League for such a rapid response to our concerns.
