$5 strip-club fee to prevent sex attacks

Yes, the Texas Legislature is in session, so we get all sorts of crazy proposals.
Strip clubs would have to peel off $5 per customer for a new state sex assault prevention fund under legislation approved by the state Senate Wednesday.

The measure, pushed through the House earlier by Rep. Ellen Cohen, would require the clubs to take a daily count of patrons and pay the state $5 for each one. Those records would be subject to audits from the state comptroller.

Of course, there is no causal link between strip clubs and sexual assault, but that is beside the point.
