A consortium of 40 state attorneys general announced that they’ve reached an agreement with online classified ads service Craiglist to crack down on prostitution ads, AP reports. Arkansas is one of the states involved, thanks for nothing Dustin McDaniel:
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who brokered the agreement, said his office contacted Craigslist after receiving several complaints from users late in 2007 about photographs depicting nudity on the site. He said Craigslist cooperated fully and there was never a need to threaten legal action against the company.
“The dark side of the Internet must be stopped from eclipsing its immense potential for good,” Blumenthal said.
Man, isn’t that just like a bunch of Democrats to crack down on America’s hardworking small business owners? Based on the photo of this Blumenthal fellow up there, I’m surprised a guy looks like that would want to limit the availability of people who are willing to have sex for money. He looks like he could use all the help he can get.
