The Illinois Legislature is considering signing a bill into law which would make it possible for a prostitute to sue a pimp. The House has approved it, the Senate is expected to approve it, and Gov. Rod is expected to sign it. In 2004 there were 3200 prostitutes, 900 johns, and fewer than 30 pimps arrested in Chicago. Sounds to me like it's about to get a whole lot harder out there for a pimp. Shucks!
