Face down in the gutter
From today's Sun-Sentinel-
An undercover prostitution sting Wednesday night led to the first arrest inside Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino's slot machine room.
Sheena Marie Kline, 21, approached an undercover Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent in the room's bar area and offered to have sex with him for $250, according to police reports. Kline, of Linden, Va., faces a misdemeanor count of offering to secure a lewd act and a felony count of illegally possessing a prescription painkiller.
The Hallandale Beach track on Nov. 15 became the first of Broward County's four pari-mutuels to offer Las Vegas-style slot machines. In March 2005, Broward voters approved allowing the machines at Gulfstream Park; Mardi Gras Racetrack & Casino, in Hallandale Beach; Pompano Park Harness Track, in Pompano Beach; and Dania Jai-Alai, in Dania Beach.
Slots opponents have long argued that gambling will lead to more crime in the areas surrounding the pari-mutuels.
This was such an important first, the Sentinel put this as the lead story in the paper's local section. What does that tell you about the MSM mind set down in Ft. Lauderdale? See title of this post for TFM's opinion.
I know, Sex sells.
