James: Use of alternate ID to enter gay-friendly spa doesn't matter

Louisville Metro Councilman David James says he entered a gay-friendly health spa that he alleges is a "sex club" by using an ID he found on the sidewalk.

"I didn't want to use my name because I thought somebody might recognize my name and wouldn't let me in to see what was going on," said James, D-6th District, who is opposing expansion plans by the owners of Vapor Spa in Smoketown.

To enter the spa, which promotes itself as a health and fitness center for gay men, a person must be at least 18 years old and present legal identification. Pressed on the name on the identification card, James said he couldn't remember. "I don't even have the ID anymore," he said.
