Bush Justice and Sex Trafficking

George W. Bush needs all the help he can get with his historical legacy.  It's shameful that the Bush Justice Department is trying to scuttle tough new anti-trafficking legislation, particularly considering that this is an issue Mr. Bush actually cares about.  It seems that lawyers in the Justice Department believe that girls and women endure the humiliations and dangers of sex work because they want to be doing it.  They have made a choice to join the oldest profession as it were. Sounds an awful lot like the she-was-asking-for-it defense.  It's not often that I agree with the opinion of a Discovery Institute fellow, but Miller's Op-Ed piece calling out the inexcusable position taken by the Justice Department is something I can get behind.
