When the going gets tough, the
pathetic tough auction off sex toys.
Thanks to their governor’s tax and spending cuts, Kansas is in a state of economic decline. His decisions have resulted in a $300 million decrease in revenue. In an effort to recoup some of that money, the state is auctioning off the seized possessions of Larry Minkoff, a distributor of adult entertainment paraphernalia who had over $160,000 in unpaid taxes.
According to Salon:
The auction is intended to recoup unpaid tax revenue from adult entertainment purveyor Larry Minkoff, who allegedly resisted requests from the Kansas Department of Revenue for $163,986, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal. Minkoff’s assets were seized by state officials in a five-business raid in July, and he eventually agreed to sell the holdings at public auction and apply the profits to his tax debt. The Capital-Journal reports that customers can preview the “1000s of items” in Kansas City, Missouri, on Monday, or purchase online:
The online site lists about 400 lots — individual lots can contain dozens of items — that include the Pipedream Fantasy Love Swing, books, hundreds of DVDs, sex and drinking games, a wide assortment of sexually oriented equipment, carrying cases for devices, the Glass Pleasure Wand, bundles of lingerie and the Cyberskin Foot Stroker.
One of the lots contained 50 “premium” vibrators and a teddy bear. The bidding was at $10. Also available: two sets of sparkling sequin lounge pants, sizes large and small, as well as the Good Girl, Bad Girl Wrist Cuffs.
Um… Cue Pepper Brooks?
