At his court appearance Provencher said he needed the extra money to make up for a pay cut because of the downturn in the newspaper business.

    It is recession proof. World's oldest profession.

    Hey honey let's make a list of possible things I can do to earn some money because the Newspaper business is in trouble and the Union Leader is cutting my salary:

    - freelance writing
    - technical writing for big companies
    - write books
    - look for a different job
    - run an illegal prostitution ring in New Hampshire of all places, because obviously now that poker is legal in most of the state running an illegal book is out of the question.

    This guy was nuts. Gangbangs were his thing with housewives.

    Legalize it.

    Media people are seen by many as the amoebas of society. This story does nothing to change that.

  • tl;dr

    Prostitution is a victimless crime.

    Apparently the prosecution has never seen The Night Shift with Henry Winkler and Michael Keaton. Prostitution rings aren't abusive toward women; they're comical romps for all involved!
