Michael Weinstein of AIDS Healthcare Foundation said this at AHF’s launch of ‘Yes on B’ press conference September 17th (audio here):
“In the election season, oftentimes the first casualty is the truth.”
Then he goes on to prove his point by lying about how a syphilis case was handled in Los Angeles in August 2012.
“In the United States, the industry threw an antibiotic blanket over the whole thing by not testing people, but simply administering a shot.”
Not true. People are tested within the adult community every twenty-eight days–in some cases fourteen–and testing has always been the first line of defense against HIV, STIs and STDs.
Are we to believe AHF, or the industry’s own adult performers?
Here is a list of performer voices, including two videos just uploaded by performer/director Steven St. Croix talking about why Measure B is bad for the State of California.
We know AHF paid Darren James and Derrick Burts to appear in their ad in favor of Measure B [link], and we know that Derrick Burts changed his story about how he caught HIV and has a long criminal record [link]. In other words, we know we can’t trust him.
The industry has a population whose voices are raising constantly, so listen to theirs and decide for yourself:

If it’s really about telling the truth, why are these voices always omitted from AHF speeches?
