November 5 – Portland Sex Workers and the Prostitution Free Zone
Prostitution-free zones are areas in which police have probable cause to believe a person committed prostitution. Offenders could be banned from the zone for 12- 18 month period. In 2007, Mayor Tom Potter allowed Portland's Prostitution Free Zone ordinances to sunset after determining that the law was ineffective. In recent months, neighbors of the Montavilla neighborhood have begun organizing to push for its reinstatement.

End game

 We knew it would come down to this.

The Republicans can't win on the issues. The well of fear-mongering has run dry. Most Americans now realize that Barack Obama is, in fact, black.

So they're trying to steal it, like we knew they would. The long-expected voter purges have begun, and the GOP -- in the name of God and country, no doubt -- are trying to disenfranchise thousands of Americans. We're lucky here in Oregon, in that our vote-by-mail system is largely immune to this garbage. But in places like Georgia, Ohio, and Florida, the game is afoot.

To me, it doesn't get much dirtier than this -- if it looks like you're gonna lose the election, do your level best to make sure only the Right Kind of People vote.
