Lawmaker proposes $20 porn fee to fund Trump’s border wall


Arizona – Republican, Rep. Gail Griffin, has introduced House Bill 2444. The bill will charge $20 fee for Arizonans to access pornographic websites. The money collected would fund a number of things including grants, battle revenge porn, help sex abuse victims, and fund the president’s border wall.

From Phoenix 3TV/CBS5:

The only way to access porn would be paying a one-time fee of at least $20. Anyone who deactivates the blocker, or commits any other sort of violation, would face a misdemeanor charge.[

The taxed money would go into a new account called the “John McCain Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Fund.”

Among the goals for the fund include building a border wall between Mexico and Arizona or fund border security.

Funding would also help human trafficking and domestic violence victims with housing, job placement and health services.

The bill is not currently on any committee calendar for discussion.


A few years back Matt Welch (Reason) described some on the left as ‘Progressive Puritans,’ however, right wingers such as Gail Griffin remind us that people on both sides of the aisle like to regulate behavior to accomplish their agendas.

Matt Welch (Reason, May, 2014):

If you could put a date on when modern-day progressives fully re-inhabited the moral rigidity of their Progressive Era forebears, it might be September 24, 2012. That’s when Village Voice Media, the country’s biggest chain of alternative newsweeklies, split off its online classifieds site Backpage.com after a years-long, progressive-led campaign to shutter the site over claims that it facilitates “sex trafficking.”

It will be interesting to see how this pans out as Mike Stabile of the Free Speech Coalition has already called this bill is, “pretty clearly unconstitutional.”
