The fact they were also making a lot of money off kids, as well as allegedly attracting the attention of the mafia, led to bans in other cities in the 1940s, such as Chicago and New York.

Several names were dropped of alleged perpetrators.” He continued, welcoming sexual harassment victims to contact the mods privately for support.
