Councilman Looks to Ban Folio Weekly from City Property

march 24, 2008  08:44 am
Jacksonville city councilman Clay Yarborough is calling on mayor John Peyton to remove Folio and its distribution racks from public property after seeing the March 11 issue featuring a cover story on sadomasochism, the Times-Union reports. In his email to the mayor and council leadership, reprinted on Folio's blog, Yarborough says he's worried about children seeing the story, and objects to ads with photos of "scantily clad women." Ironically, the very distribution location that raised Yarborough's ire -- a coffee shop inside the library -- isn't even under city authority, according to the mayor's spokesperson.
