CARMEN TRUTANICH Taking HITS in LA Times & LA Daily News on His ANTI-CONDOM on Porno Shoot (BULLY) Stance. Cal/OSHA's Laywer DISPUTES TRUTANICH'S POSITION!
HERE'S A ZUMA DOGG - LACityNews.com RE-MIX article. LA Times & LA Daily News on L.A. City Attorney @CarmenTrutanich standing in way of condom use on L.A. City porno shoots. A public safety issue. THIS DON'T LOOK GOOD FOR TRUTANICH. Many of his former supporters have turned HARD on Trutanich, and looks as though you have LA City News, LA Times, LA Daily News -- a bunch of different local organizations (and probably LA Weekly) ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TRUTANICH'S BULLY LINE!
VAN NUYS - An HIV/AIDS activist group that has already placed a measure on the June city ballot requiring performers to use condoms on Los Angeles porn sets, launched another ballot initiative Tuesday that would order adult film producers to obtain a county public health permit.
AIDS Healthcare Foundation called on Los Angeles County officials to mandate that adult films follow the same health department permit process required of bathhouses, sex clubs, and tattoo and message parlors.
Under the county initiative, adult film producers would file health permits and pay a fee set by the health department that would pay for inspections and enforcement.
"Not one dollar will come from taxpayers," said Michael Weinstein, executive director for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
Trutanich's lawyers say the ordinance would be vulnerable in court because the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health already regulates workplace safety — and already has a regulation in place requiring the use of condoms on adult film locations. But Cal/OSHA's lawyer has said the Los Angeles law would not impinge on his agency's jurisdiction, which is limited to employer-employee relationships. Film performers are generally contract workers, not employees.
Whether this is likewise an area in which the city should lead is open to question — but that now is a question that should be answered by the voters. The right to petition and vote is paramount. The city attorney should drop his suit, the City Council should do what it must to secure a spot on the June ballot, and opponents can make their arguments against a local condom requirement for film permits in the accustomed time and place — during the campaign. [WHY WOULD TRUTANICH ALLOW VOTERS TO DECIDE? HE WANTS IT HIS WAY AND DOESN'T WANT TO TAKE ANY CHANCES! He KNOWS he will LOSE to voters and they will SUPPORT the COMMON SENSE position he is trying to BLOCK! (Is Trutanich planning on taking money, or has he taken money, from PORNO industry who wants to PREVENT condoms from spoiling the cinematic visual ascetics?) Has ZD ever asked a question he doesn't already know the answer to?]
