Henry McMaster, the Attorney General of South Carolina trying to run for Governor, has decided to press criminal charges against the founders of Craigslist for allowing ads for prostitution. ‚ The problem is that Craigslist has actually taken enormous steps to remove these ads from it’s listings nationwide, even going so far as to close it’s “Erotic Services” section. ‚ In comparison, print media in South Carolina including newspapers and even the Yellow Pages carry FAR more hardcore ads for sex. ‚ Even other websites, such as an listing service run by Microsoft carry many more pornographic/prostitution ads. ‚ So why has Henry McMaster decided to pursue Craigslist, a non-profit organization?
Craigslist is a very popular, high-profile website that instantly generates headlines when information comes out about it and‚ Henry McMaster wants to take advantage of the free press to promote his campaign for Governor of South Carolina. ‚ Henry McMaster is a sleazy douchebag and no one should vote for him.
