Survey: Pornographers Prefer Obama

Press Release from our organization, Morality In Media:

Obama has 5 to 1 advantage over Romney because Romney will prosecute pornographers

Washington, DC (October 11, 2012) – By a margin of 69% to 13%, the pornography industry is supporting President Barack Obama over Governor Mitt Romney in this year’s election, according to a new survey by XBIZ.COM, the porn industry’s online journal. (See here.)

Patrick Trueman, president of Morality in Media said he is not surprised that the pornographers are strongly in Obama’s corner, because the Obama Department of Justice has refused to enforce federal laws prohibiting distribution of hardcore obscene pornography. Federal law currently prohibits distribution of obscene pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, through the mail and by common carrier such as UPS of FedEx.

“The porn industry is flourishing because the Obama Administration has given it a green light to distribute hardcore porn to every man, woman, and child in America,” said Trueman. “I don’t believe President Obama understands the devastating influence of pornography on American society and particularly to our nation’s youth. It contributes to lifelong addictions for children and adults, and increases the demand for child pornography and trafficked women and children,” he added. “We have done everything we know how to do to get the Obama Administration to enforce pornography laws, including getting nearly half the U. S. Senate and dozens of U. S. House Members to sign letters to Attorney General Eric Holder urging enforcement of current obscenity laws,” Trueman said.

XBIZ.COM noted, “Mitt Romney earlier this year, along with other Republican candidates at the time, offered assurances that if elected, they would direct the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute porn producers for obscenity violations.”

Morality in Media is working with a 127-member coalition of national, state, and local groups called the War on Illegal Pornography to get federal laws enforced. The coalition includes many national organizations concerned about the negative influence of pornography on the family, such Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, Focus on the Family, and Alliance Defending Freedom.

“American families are suffering from an untreated pandemic of harm due to the easy availability of illegal pornography, and nearly every American family is concerned about this issue,” Trueman noted. Mr. Trueman served as the director of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section in the Criminal Division of the U. S. Department of Justice during the Administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, leading the successful prosecutions of dozens of major producers and distributors of illegal hardcore pornography.
