FBI Seizes Website Linked To Sex Crimes; Owners Donated To Democrats
By Ryan Saavedra April 6, 2018
On Friday, the U.S. government seized Backpage.com as part of a law enforcement action by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies after the site came under intense legal scrutiny for allegations of facilitating sex trafficking and underage prostitution.
An FBI official said that there was “law enforcement activity” at the home of Michael Lacey, one of the website’s founders, at his home in Arizona, Reuters reported. The seizure banner on the website stated:
The website was the target of law enforcement scrutiny over allegations that “it facilitated sex trafficking and prostitution through its adult section, a controversy that took years to unwind and culminated in the arrest of the company’s CEO and eventual removal of the adult section,” The Verge reports.
The owners of the website have given tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats in recent years, including a Super PAC backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the failed presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona David Garcia, and the Arizona Democratic Party.
Well that ought to stir the sex pot… but you probably won’t see it on CNN:
Has an annoying pop-up demanding you whitelist them in your ad blocker so I’ve quoted enough you don’t need to go there.
