As I was editing and annotating the podcast I referred back to the Wikileaks Podesta Emails #32795 (“Hi John The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related.”). I recalled that back in the 1990s in Vancouver there were news stories about pimps using For Sale unoccupied houses as trick pads for underage prostitutes and that realtors were involved. Something similar could happen in D.C. So one could look for possible clues by either speaking with, or seeking the records of, realtors or property managers associated with the principles in pizzagate. In the Westlaw PeopleMap report on James Alefantis Alefantis and his company Big Bucks LLC appear to have a few liens registered against them by realtors.

Here is a story from that period (bolding mine):

Frustrated police resolve to prosecute hookers’ clients: Inside the under-age sex trade: [FINAL Edition]
Bellett, Gerry. The Vancouver Sun [Vancouver, B.C] 09 July 1994: A4.

Under the streetlights the public only sees the mask of the harlot, all lipstick and brazenness.

But in many cases, beneath that cocky facade hides the vulnerable face of a child.

And Vancouver police are on a crusade to convince the public to take a long look at that face and think about the men buying her body.

“This is not buying sex — it’s sexual exploitation of children and young people,” Insp. Bob Taylor said Friday.

Taylor, the patrol officer in charge of the city’s northeast section which includes Skid Road and Mount Pleasant, announced a new program to target men buying sex from minors.

“I’d like to see us have the same kind of success as the Counterattack program which has made drinking and driving socially unacceptable,” said Taylor.

“We want it to be unacceptable for men to prey on children. We have to make the public realize it’s sexual exploitation and ask ourselves how much longer can we allow it,” he said.

“Not only children, many of the older prostitutes were sexually exploited as children and we want to tell men who think it’s just buying sex, that she’s here because when she was young she was abused by someone like you.”

Vancouver has some 2,000 prostitutes, with 10 per cent of them 17 years or younger, and some reported to be as young as 11.

Now that police are viewing prostitutes as victims — Taylor refers to them as “sex trade workers” — they will no longer be arresting them as a general deterrent for soliciting.

“We’ve found that doesn’t work. We’ll only do that in special instances, such as if one is found outside a school and won’t move.”

Police are now putting their resources into prosecuting and discouraging customers. By reducing demand they hope to reduce the numbers of children falling into prostitution.

Borrowing a campaign first used in Edmonton and in Surrey, police will begin mailing out “Dear John” letters to men engaged in negotiating sex with known prostitutes.

But more importantly, they will now target men seeking child prostitutes, a crime which carries a maximum jail penalty of five years.

Such a campaign displays a profound shift in police attitudes, says Simon Fraser University criminology professor John Lowman.

“This is an important shift from concerns about public propriety and property values to concern about the sexual exploitation of prostitutes,” he said.

He described the Vancouver police decision to go after men seeking child prostitutes as a major effort which will likely break new ground.

“No police department has targeted the buyers of child sex since the law against it was introduced in 1988.

“Because of the difficulty in gathering evidence there’s been no real enforcement of Section 212 (4) of the Criminal Code which makes it an offence to offer to have, or to have, sex with a person 17 years or younger,” said Lowman, an expert on prostitution.

“What they will try to do is use a variety of tactics to find out what sort of evidence the courts will accept for a conviction,” he said.

Taylor admitted the section has caused problems for police and that last year only 66 charges were laid in B.C.

“In just about every case a successful prosecution requires the testimony of the child. The child has to say `Yes, that’s the person who offered money for sex.’ But most of them won’t do it. Their reaction is `Get off my back and let me go back to the street so I can make some money.’ “

The police plan to seek political help in bringing section changes.

“We’d like that section changed so we can lay a charge if a customer is seen attempting to solicit a child and putting the onus on the accused to prove he wasn’t,” he said.

Police are also seeking changes to the section which would allow officers to pose as children so they can arrest customers specifically seeking sex with a minor — something they are unable to do now.

Research has shown police that customers are more easily deterred than prostitutes. In Surrey, the Dear-John campaign was undertaken in 1992 when the RCMP said there were hundreds of prostitutes in the area.

Today there are only a few, said Surrey RCMP Const. Mark Hepburn.

“It’s been a remarkable reduction. We did it by chipping away at the supply — using officers posing as customers to arrest prostitutes — and by decreasing the demand using the Dear-John letters,” he said.

Since 1992 there has been a large increase in the numbers of prostitutes counted in Strathcona by police and SFU researchers.

IN 1992 there was an average of 15 prostitutes counted on the main “strolls” at midnight but that doubled to 30 last year.

In 1992 police identified 442 men and women working as prostitutes in Strathcona, and 44 children.

Taylor said all the children were apprehended — some more than once — in an effort to get them off the street but this failed.

“We made a total of 102 apprehensions on these 44 children,” he said. “Unfortunately when you are dealing with damaged children who’ve spent an extended period on the street it becomes difficult to reach them. That’s why we are going to deter their customers.”

An official of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association said his group opposes the Dear-John campaign.

“If they have evidence someone has broken a law, let them prosecute. But they shouldn’t be sending letters to people for driving through Mount Pleasant. It could cause a lot of damage to innocent people,” said Andrew Wilkinson.

Vice officers in Calgary are very interested in Vancouver’s strategy.

S.Sgt. Ross MacInnes, head of the vice section, said his city has a unique problem — “trick pads,” a sort of portable brothel that provides child prostitutes to groups of males for the evening. The pads are located in an office or a house to which some realtor has a key.

“By the time they are 16 they are too old for the trick pads. They like them to be young, from 11 to 15,” said MacInnes.

“These men are guilty of sexual abuse and pedophilia. They are statutory rapists. The public has got to understand that little girls are being raped.

“If some 13-year-old girl from an upper class area of Vancouver was raped 30 times in single night — you’d call out the army.

“Well, that’s what’s happening to some of these kids.”
