DC ‘Prostitution Free Zone’ For Inaugural

From a website seemingly dedicated to the goings on in the District of Columbia, the DCist:

D.C. Declares a ‘Prostitution Free Zone’ for Inauguration

January 16, 2009

Reader Jason Cragg sent over this capture of a sign placed at 5th and Eye Streets NW, right in the middle of Inauguration Island. You’re reading it right: portions of downtown have been declared a "Prostitution Free Zone" for the Inaugural celebration period. The best part? It has an expiration date, as though at all other times, hookers have free reign over downtown Washington — hey, at least the MPD is honest.

Truth be told, this isn’t the first time the MPD has declared a PFZ. You can read about how the law works here, but the basic idea is that it allows police officers to issue fines of $300 to a group of two or more persons found congregating in a public space or property within the PFZ for the purpose of engaging in prostitution or prostitution-related offenses. Still, these signs are sure to look mighty funny to most people walking through the area on their way to the Inauguration on Tuesday.

Talk about spitting into the wind.

Still, we would like one of those signs.

(We can dream, can’t we?)

    Aperantly there is also a “homeless-free zone” as well – looks like they are replicating the DNC all over again, yet no mention of it in any main stream meda – imagine if this were Republican inaguaration.

  2. caligirl9 says:


    Has the area also been declared a crack cocaine-free zone?

  3. Reality Bytes says:

    It used to be easy. When Clinton was president, he’d just roll down the street in the presidential limo with all the doors open. Like honey to a bee. Course, well, not really, more like flies. I forgot what attracts flies, I bet it would be more appropriate.

    Does this mean that no Democrats will be able to attend?

    • Flession says:

      No, it just means that there will be less attendance.

      Media whores, easy Liberal girls, and people who have had 5+ abortions over the past year are still going to be there, rest assured. So at least their carnal desires can be sated.

    • JohnMG says:

      The biggest whore of the bunch will be riding in the Presidential limo. And, no, its not Michelle to whom I’m referring!

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Oprah be in da parade?

  5. Liberals Demise says:

    …….and those who don’t have a dance partner, there is always screwing the American citizen. The pen is mightier than some crying, mamby pamby, middle class taxpayer. I’ll bet Barney gets him a manho lined up!

    It’s his corner now

  7. Colonel1961 says:

    Was this intended for politicians or hookers? At least one group makes its’ living honestly…

    • JohnMG says:

      Ya can’t tell the difference without a score card. My question is, if the DC cops are going to exclude all the undesirables from the inauguration, who’re we going to inaugurate? And to what office?

  8. Nimblicity says:


    This area has been declared a



    This edict empowers the Obama Youth Corp officers to issue fines to and destroy careers of any persons found congregating in a public space or property within the CFZ without demonstrating sufficient excitement about looney left evisceration of the Constitution and the moral cowardice of the pseudoconservative establishment that enables it.

    Expiration: 01/20/2012 (If God has mercy).

    • Gila Monster says:

      Well stated Nimblicity!!

      Does this mean that whilst the Messiah ™ is present in DC. all laws for “commoners” are suspended?

      As such, it appears to me that we can expect entitlement program costs to skyrocket and sin laws to be completely ignored in DC, for what, the next 4, 6, 12, or uhhh, what 16 years or so!! Billy Jeff would be proud.

      Ah yes indeed, SanFranNan and Dingy Harry, along with the “Chosen One” ™, are certainly purging our Federal goverrnment of the “culture of corruption”.

      The irony of the whole thing is just, oh my, so rich …sigh. ;o)

  9. Media_man says:

    Didn’t Barney Frank run a whorehouse out of the basement of his Boston townhouse? Or his live-in boyfriend at the time did & he wasn’t aware of it or so he claimed? Does anyone remember this?

    • JohnMG says:

      Yep. The one and the same. But that’s different than tapping somebody’s foot in a mens room. That guy was a disgrace! Or is that……dithgrathe?

    • Paulajay says:

      Barney’s gay prostitution ring was run from his Washington DC apartment. (Although he’s probably set up a franchise in his Boston residence…)

  10. River says:

    The whole of D.C. is a whorehouse. Everything is for sale. It pains me to say it, because we were once a great country, but we have lost our way and given up our inheritance to false gods.

    In a few days we’re going to witness The Second Coming, Hollywood style. And then it will be The Great Depression, Hollywood style.

    It’s an open question whether or not we can come back from this pop-culture morass.. The majority of our people are ignorant halfwits, and proud of it.

  11. proreason says:

    So Obamy won’t be allowed at his own coronation?

  12. DGA says:

    With hookers, at least the public gets SOMETHING for their money. When it comes to democrats (and a lot of republicans lately) we the people pay to get screwed by them. We’d all get a lot more value for our cash by just going with the hookers instead.

  13. Confucius says:

    Isn’t it ironic that D.C. has segregated the ho’s in order to inaugurate a president whose election was supposed to signify the end of racism?

    Will these poor disenfranchisees also have to ride in the back of the Metro?

    What’s a ho to do?

  14. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    I would add my own two cents worth here but after reading these comments I realize you’ve covered all the bases pretty well.

  15. sheehanjihad says:

    The reason they have established a “no prostitution zone” in DC is because the real whores have gained power in the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office. We are going to get screwed a lot longer, and for a lot more money than any hooker could dream of. AND, the big difference is, Washington’s democrats are doing it legally!

  16. joeblough says:

    I figured most of the good jokes would be taken already.

    And for sure, without the whores DC would be damn near empty … and there would be nobody to speak at the inaugural.

  17. wirenut says:

    Late to this dance, but DAMN ! You all are funny ,and dead-on .The real whores are on stage for this show . I feel used ,and the check is blank . The real gang-bang is about to begin .

  18. TickTock says:

    I suppose the libs will have to stimulate the DC economy by hand until the ban is lifted.

  19. wirenut says:

    TickTock , you are a bad bad man . I remember back to, ” women and booze ‘ were all we had to worry about . Haw ! I forgot, most D.C. lizards are self-centered. HAW !

  20. Alice L. says:

    “prostitution free zone” – except for the politicians such as Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and William “cold cash” Jefferson. Not to mention Bill Clinton and Eliot Spitzer.

  21. yellarcan says:

    I read this to be prostitution is free in this zone. Think B. Hussein will take advantage of the freebies. I can only hope so, I mean have you took a good look at Mrs. B Hussein, that could be whats attracting the flies. I”m a sick bastard for pointing out the obvious.

  22. yellarcan says:

    One other thing, I was just thinking that they made this a whore free zone because one or more whores might notice oh B. to be John Hussein. I can dream can’t I?
