16 women arrested in Tampa prostitution sting before Republican National Convention [View all]


Palm Beach Post Capital Bureau


Police are sweeping strip clubs on the hunt for hookers as the city cleans up its act before the Republican National Convention.

Police arrested 16 women at adult entertainment venues during “Operation Keep It Clean” on Thursday and Friday nights. The women were charged with offering to commit prostitution, the Tampa Police Department said.

Prostitutes and strippers have flooded into Tampa — notorious for its adult entertainment hot spots — hoping to cash in on an expected 50,000 visitors. Stripper Lisa Ann, a Sarah Palin look-alike known as “Nailin’ Palin,” will appear at one club for two nights just before the convention begins.

Undercover officers visited a dozen clubs while looking for prostitution and human sex trafficking. Officials said they launched the sweep after getting reports that prostitutes may be coming to work in the clubs during the convention. Authorities said they will continue the operation before, during and after the four-day event.
