Ohio Mayor Warns That Ice Fishing Will Lead to Prostitution

The Super Bowl promotes prostitution almost as much as ice fishing. Hudson, Ohio may open Hudson Springs Lake to Ice Fishing. Craig Shubert is unusually opposed to opening Hudson Springs Lake for ice fishing. Shubert states that opening up the lake for ice fishing will lead to prostitution.

The following is a city council video that reads like sketch comedy—Shubert’s comic delivery would be perfect, if this were comedy—the mayor warns that if you open up the lake to ice fishing, ice shantytowns will follow, and the​​n commercial sex. Ice shanties can be irresistible for sex workers, doesn’t it? There is nothing like feeling the cold water and fish guts to lift your mood!

“If you open this up to ice fishing, while on the surface it sounds good, then what happens next year—does someone come back and say I want an ice shanty?” Shubert was asked. Shubert responded, “And if then you permit ice fishing with Shanties, that then leads to another issue: prostitution.”

He added, “Just data points to think about.” Shubert seems to not understand the meaning of “data points”.

That the mayor’s comments come this week—Super Bowl week—is pretty perfect. This isn’t comedy or reality, but it sure seems brilliant. CommentOn another topic, we will discuss prostitution: The idea that large sporting events such as the Super Bowl attract sex traffickers.

Because it provides cops with a reason to target adult sex workers or consensual sex, the Super Bowl sex–trafficking myth seems appealing. The feds also like this myth because they have a strong pretext to increase surveillance and security. If you look into any Super Bowl “sextrafficking” stings, you will see that it just leads to the arrests of many sex workers as well as their clients.


Some fears regarding election laws may have been exaggerated, according to research.Research by Alan I. Abramowitz, a political science professor, and the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics suggests that voting procedure rules of the type being changed in the statehouses across the country have limited effect.

In the aftermath of the high-turnout 2020 election, many Republican-controlled state governments have passed legislation that Democrats believe will harm their party’s voter turnout.

But, the voting rules didn’t appear to have a significant impact on turnout or had any impact on margins for vote at the state-level in the 2020 presidential elections.

The strong preferences of the majority of voters among the major parties influenced both voter turnout as well as voting decisions for 2020.
