CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

AHF Now Moving On Statewide Condom Law.

I got a tip that AHF is on the move:

AHF is preparing for their next political campaign. With the shot of confidence from the big win with Meausre B, AHF is now looking to go statewide with the help of 64th district State Assemblyman Isador Hall,lll. Mr, Hall represents a district that voted 79% in favor of Measure B. For a very long time AHF has been attempting to get any state legislator to bring a bill to the floor of the state assembly but has not been able to find a legislator willing to take the risk of appearing to support the adult industry. But with 79% of his constituents voting in favor of Measure B, it did not take long to convince this legislator that bringing a bill to the state assembly would not be political suicide for him, in fact, Mr. Hall can tell his constituents come re-election time that he was following their lead, and he listens and respects the people that he represents. And seeing how the FSC is claiming that the county does not have proper jurisdiction, this statewide law will take care of that.

And don’t think that AHF is putting all their eggs in this one basket. After seeing the dismal excuse for a campaign run by the FSC, and James Lee, and the paltry sum of money the adult industry was able to raise in their so called campaign, (Twitter and Facebook) the AHF will also be preparing a state wide initiative for the voters of California. AHF now knows that the adult industry will never be able to raise enough money to mount a statewide campaign, while the coffers at AHF are fuller than they have ever been. the myth that the adult industry is a multi-billion dollar enterprise is a thing of the past, and AHF knows this. The only regret the AHF has now is that they did not go for the state wide initiative right from the start, and save themselves a few bucks.

But no matter how any of these elections, or appeals play out in the long run it really doesn’t matter. OSHA regulations still rule the day, and nothing has changed that. Even this appeal of Meaure B is much ado about nothing, OSHA regulations are still in full effect, just ask the guys at Streamray Productions.
