Seven states quiz Craigslist on porn

May 27, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Attorneys general from seven states asked online classified site Craigslist for details on how it will keep pornography and prostitution off its newly created adult services section.

They made the request nearly two weeks after Craigslist agreed to eliminate its "erotic services" ads, a change prompted by intense scrutiny after a Boston man was charged with killing a masseuse he met through Craigslist's online classifieds.

"It's a step forward, but we need to know what specific measures Craigslist is using," Connecticut Atty. Gen. Richard Blumenthal said.
