Lou Posner claims sex-for-pay was not occurring at the Hot Lap Dance Club, "We hired intelligent, well-spoken girls, some of them Ivy League girls," and said women who weren't hired were launching fake allegations against him. Powner is also upset his wife was swept up in the arrests ("The most she did was make brownies [for the staff].") but he did look on the bright side of being behind bars, while he is being held on $150,000 bail, "I need to lose some weight."
