The investigator I am working with asked me to put the word out. Here is a link to Senator Portman discussing the Stop Sex Trafficking Bill in the Guardian.
History will judge those who don’t stop sex trafficking – Rob Portman
The bipartisan Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act would clarify Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to ensure that websites that facilitate sex trafficking can be held liable so that victims can get justice.
The bipartisan bill would:
- Allow victims of sex trafficking to seek justice against websites that facilitated the crimes against them;
- Eliminate federal liability protections for websites that assist, support, or facilitate a violation of federal sex trafficking laws; and
- Enable state law enforcement officials, not just the federal Department of Justice, to take action against individuals or businesses that violate federal sex trafficking laws.
