Pa. Child Porn Victim Sues Viewers for $150k Each

Source: ABCNews.com

A child pornography victim from Pennsylvania is using a law that carries her name to seek at least $150,000 each from her father, 13 other jailed men and anyone else who viewed explicit images of her.

"Masha's Law" is named for Masha Allen, a Russian orphan adopted at age 5 by divorced Pittsburgh-area millionaire Matthew Mancuso. He's in prison for making and posting about 200 sexually explicit images of her that authorities believe have been viewed millions of times online.

The FBI sought the identity of the child known as the "Internet Girl" or "Disney World Girl" and located Masha in 2003, when she was 10. She is now 20 and has changed her name to regain some measure of privacy after testifying in Congress.

...
Mancuso, an engineer in his mid-40s, had sought to adopt a girl between the ages of 4 and 6, explaining that he wanted to make up for his strained relationship with his teenage daughter, according to the Congressional hearing transcript.

Why would you relay a right wing tool's propaganda tweet here?

"First, your honor, I want to start off with an apology," Manning told the court after taking the stand to make an unsworn statement. "I am sorry that my actions hurt people. I 'm sorry that they hurt the United States.

Christie spends $4.7 million of Sandy money on ads starring him




Chris Christie has released his first wave of campaign ads for the 2016 presidential elections! Oh no wait, no, these are not campaign ads, they are Jersey Shore tourism ads, can’t you tell? They are public service ads to promote tourism! Because everybody wants to go to a beach full of Chris Christies. That’s why it is totally okay for Christie to spend $4.7 million from Hurricane Sandy relief money with some PR firm called MWW — which happens to be $2 million MORE than another bid — on shameless self-promotion, or, as the always yelling Christie yells it, this selfless effort to promote tourism. These particular ads also cost more because they had Christie starring in them.

An online petition to move the upcoming Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia to Vancouver is gathering steam. 47,000 people have signed the petition so far, a dramatic increase from 6,000 signatures on Monday.

Russia is facing growing international pressure over the country’s “gay propaganda” laws.

The Russian Sport Minister has said the country intends to enforce its laws against visiting LGBT athletes, trainers and fans.

The petition, started by the organization ‘Equality for All,’ is pitching Vancouver as the ideal place to move the Games.

It points out Vancouver successfully held the games in 2010 and the facilities are already in place.
