Strippers rally for 'strip pole tax' to aid schools

Exotic dancers held a rally outside the Supreme Court building in Mineola today to support legislation for a so-called "stripper pole tax."

The tax would charge customers $10 for entering all strip clubs in New York.

Several strip club owners also say they will begin to impose their own "voluntary" surcharge on patrons.

The owners say they will be sending the proceeds to Albany to help with the school budget crisis.

The "voluntary" tax will begin this weekend when Amy Fisher performs at a Deer Park strip club.
