Susan Finkelstein Facebook
Bensalem, Pa. (The Weekly Vice) - Susan Finkelstein, a 43-year-old Pennsylvania woman was arrested Tuesday after she allegedly posted an ad in Craigslist offering sex in exchange for World Series tickets.
According to Bensalem police, Finkelstein posted an ad on Craigslist stating that she was a die-hard Phillies fan and a buxom blond in desperate need of two World Series tickets.
Investigators say her ad went on to say "I'm a creative type! Maybe we can help each other." She allegedly stated that she was "gorgeous" and that her price was negotiable.
When detectives responded to Finkelstein's ad, she reportedly offered to perform sex acts in exchange for the coveted tickets. The officer set up a meeting with Finkelstein at a local bar, stating that he and his brother had World Series tickets for sale.
Finkelstein reportedly offered to perform sex acts on both of them, stating "Well, I'd rather have two tickets and I could take care of both of you."
"There was no confusion at all," stated Bucks County Safety Director, Fred Harran. "She was pretty explicit in what she was going to trade."
Finkelstein was booked into jail on a misdemeanor charge of prostitution.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
As salacious as this story is.... I believe the charge in this case is both ridiculous and a waste of taxpayer dollars. When Finkelstein mentioned that her "price was negotiable"... That suggests to me that she would have paid for the tickets if the price was something she could afford.
Sure.... I believe she was willing to "give a guy what he wants" in exchange for getting "what she wants".... but little arrangements like that take place all over the country every moment of the day.
With the number violent crimes posted here on TWV each day, I truly have to question why authorities are mopping up time and tax dollars on something as asinine as this.
