S.C. to Craigslist: Watch it

How much for all night?

S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster has written to Craigslist Chief Executive Jim Buckmaster, threatening “criminal investigation and prosecution” over personal ads on the site that McMaster claims are used for prostitution.

In November, Craigslist agreed to crack down on postings that advertised prostitution or “erotic services” as part of a set of changes endorsed by attorneys general in about 40 states.

At that time, the San Francisco business also sued 14 software and service providers, saying in part that they claim to offer help in evading Craigslist’s rules about illegal activity.

But McMaster is the latest in a string of state attorneys general to complain that Craigslist hasn’t done enough to clean up the ads.
