Chicago Sheriff Sues Craigslist Over Prostitution Ads


Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart says he has busted enough prostitutes who were pimped out on Craigslist to know the online classified site is the biggest whorehouse in the U.S., reports the Chicago Sun-Times. Dart asked a federal judge yesterday to force San Francisco-based Craigslist to eliminate the “erotic services” section of its Web site. The lawsuit also asks that Craigslist reimburse Cook County for the salaries of officers who investigate prostitution and human trafficking through the Web site — a bill of more than $100,000.
