When Dianne Feinstein was mayor, she tried
cleaning up the strip joints, particularly the Mitchell Brothers'
Theater which is located only three blocks from City Hall. In
February 1985, the cops raided the theater and arrested porn movie
star, Marilyn Chambers, in the middle of her nude act. Prior to
becoming a porn movie star, Ms. Chambers had a brief career as a
model and was featured as the wholesome looking mother on the boxes
of Ivory Snow detergent.
Hinckle, a buddy of the Mitchell Brothers and an
frequent critic of the mayor, wrote several columns of scathing
ridicule about the arrest and the politician behind it. A few days
later, Hinckle was arrested on a warrant for walking his basset
hound, Bentley, without a leash.
