Rikileaks: Redner says his biggest accomplishment has been in the battles he’s waged against local, state and federal governments — some successful, others not. After opening his first strip club — Redner prefers the term “adult entertainment” — he was arrested 36 times on obscenity charges by officials. He claimed that it was his First Amendment right to operate the club.
In 2000, Redner vehemently opposed the so-called “six-foot rule,” a county ordinance preventing adult entertainers from coming within six feet of their clients. The rule is still on the books, but isn’t enforced.
