Foley on child model websites (kiddie porn-lite)

Legal child porn comes under fire

Lawmaker targets Web sites featuring preteen models

March 28, 2002 - The photos of 12-year-old Amber cavorting in a swimsuit and various skimpy outfits wouldnt have raised so much as an eyebrow if they had been posted on a family home page. But on lilamber.com one of a growing number of preteen model sites operating in the legal gray area between innocent imagery and child pornography they have drawn the attention of the Justice Department and prompted a congressman to declare war on the reckless endangerment of such kids by their parents and Web site operators.

This is an unacceptable way for a child to earn lunch money performing like a circus animal, Rep. Mark Foley said of the sites, which feature girls as young as 6 wearing revealing clothing and striking sexually suggestive poses but display no nudity or overt sexual material that would run afoul of child pornography laws. It sickens you that a parent would have such disregard for their own child.

...

Foley, who is co-founder of a congressional caucus devoted to issues surrounding missing and exploited children, learned of the pre-teen sites late last year when WTVJ asked about them. I was outraged when I first saw it because its being passed off as some career-building opportunity or to apply for college, he said, referring to statements on several of the sites saying the proceeds will go toward the girls college educations. To me, it borders on pornography and indentured servitude.

...

But Rep. Foley said he intends to explore a new legal avenue whether the parents of the child models could be prosecuted under child-endangerment laws. This is reckless endangerment if Ive ever seen it because youre basically introducing your child to some really sick people, Foley told MSNBC.com this week.

4. See that is the Problem... 99 out of 100 of these sites are FEMALE
Foley probably has the bookmarks for research only of the MALE kiddie sites. :grr:
