San Diego Strippers Are Back In Business Thanks To A Hero Judge Who Handed Gavin Newsom An L

California Governor Gavin Newsom, who has ruled with an iron fist since getting his first taste of locking down his citizens, was handed a loss Wednesday, thanks to San Diego County Superior Court Judge Joel R. Wohlfeil. Wohlfeil ruled against Newsom’s restaurant and strip club shutdowns in a county that includes 3.3 million people.

The nine-page ruling from Wohlfeil paved the way for Pacers Showgirls and Cheetahs Gentleman’s Club to reopen Wednesday and allows Anastasias and Candys to jump back on the poles to pay their rents. Oh yeah and restaurants can also resume indoor dining in San Diego County.

According to ABC-10 San Diego, “Wohlfeil cited the lack of evidence from the County that proves the two live adult entertainment venues would increase the risk of exposure to patrons or that the establishments have impacted ICU bed capacity throughout Southern California.”

The state had served both strip clubs over the weekend with cease-and-desist letters telling them they were operating while a stay-at-home order was in place.

The San Diego strip clubs fought back and stayed open.

“We are informed and believe that MIDWAY AND F-12 are continuing to conduct indoor operations notwithstanding the Regional Stay at Home Order currently in effect in the County of San Diego. Such indoor operations violate the terms of the Regional Stay at Home Order, which permits restaurants, such as those run by MIDWAY AND F-12, to operate for take-out and delivery services only,” the state’s letter read.

Cheetah’s San Diego celebrated the big news with an Instagram statement.

“As you all know, it’s been a battle back and forth trying to close the strip clubs in San Diego. From both the state and local officials. And we’d just like to say….THE CONSTITUTION WON!

“We’ve granted our injunction against the state and we hope this gives other small businesses hope that you can win too all you have to do is fight! Allowing the government to shut businesses down is unconstitutional and we just proved it.

“Come celebrate with us tonight, tomorrow and everyday after that cuz’ we’re not going anywhere!

“And a big shoutout to our phenomenal governor, local officials, kusi, fox and anyone else we may be forgetting….you tried hard, but we tried harder.”

  1. The judge also found that Newsom including San Diego with Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, and Inyo Counties, to name a few, was unsupported by the evidence as well. For those outside of California, Newsom basically said the region from the border to nearly Yosemite is “Southern California.” But anyone who lives here knows that it preposterous and was only done to let Los Angeles’ incompetent leadership sink half the state into a shutdown.

  2. I kinda wish the judge had ruled in favor of Newsome just so all those “D” voters can suffer more and get what they not only want but what they deserve: SUFFERING & FAILURE that always comes with authoritarianism. Democrats love to lick boots, so let them… The more Cali suffering the better, you get the government you deserve.
