Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray and counterparts from several states are demanding that the online classifieds site Craigslist remove a section that they say encourages sexual exploitation.You mean this Craig Newmark? The same Craig Newmark who contributed to Mary Jo Kilroy?
The attorneys general want the popular web site to take down its Adult Services section, which they say is used for sexual trafficking of children.
The state legal officers told Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster and founder Craig Newmark that the company cannot – or will not – adequately screen its illicit ads, so it must stop accepting them altogether and shut down the Adult Services section.
I first asked Rep. Kilroy to donate her contribution from Newmark to the Central Ohio Rescue and Restore Coalition almost three weeks ago. After all, why does she want support from someone who sits back and allows his website to be used for "sexual trafficking of children"?
Now that fellow Ohio Democrat Richard Cordray has recognized the serious issues with Newmark's website, will Kilroy finally do what's right?
Let's hope so.
