    Yeah, the Mann Law's still on the books. I believe it remains the basis for prosecuting individuals who cross state lines to pursue sexual relationships with minors in other states (even if they're above the age of consent in their own state), just in case RetardedGayInsurgent's interested in replacing the Prophet. :eusa_whistle:

    It's not a bad law, but in the case of Jack Johnson its application was pretty obviously completely wrong.

    I believe that the Mann Act is one way that the FEDS can get involved with cases involving interstate prostitution.

    As such I think it, or something like it, is probably warranted.
