With Republicans and sex workers flocking to next week’s Republican National Convention, police officers in Tampa conducted a two day undercover sting to bust strippers selling sexual favors at the city’s many adult entertainment venues. According to a press release issued by the Tampa police department, the strip club sting was launched “as a result of information that prostitutes may be coming into Tampa to work in adult establishments during the RNC.”

The sting resulted in the arrest of 16 women at six different nude nightclubs in Tampa. All of the women arrested were charged with “Offer to Commit Prostitution,” one was also hit with a marijuana possession charge.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel took note of the fact there was a wide age range among the aspiring RNC strippers. The youngest woman arrested was 18, the oldest was 61. Thus far, Lisa Ann, star of the grizzly mom porno movie Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?, who will be performing at The Dollhouse strip club during the RNC seems to have escaped arrest.
