Patrick Trueman, a former head of the Justice Department's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section and now the head of Morality in Media, told the conservative Daily Caller that he was quietly promised that fighting porn will be a top priority in a Romney White House.
Around the time Trueman says he received those assurances, Romney signed Morality in Media's anti-porn pledge along with Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, whom he was still battling for the GOP nomination. Since then, he hasn't mentioned the issue very often.
Despite those tough words, Romney's campaign has taken campaign cash from the head of a company that produces hard-core pornography. And gay porn filmmaker Michael Lucas, who has endorsed Romney, told the Daily Caller, “I don’t see any danger coming from Romney when it comes to porn. It’s just not there."
There may be another reason Romney isn't talking up porn: he needs the support of millions of primary voters who supported Ron Paul, who did not make opposition to sexually explicit materials a campaign plank.
So the problem is that Romney is going to enforce existing laws? I don't know, that doesn't scare me much.
Trueman said he and another anti-porn prosecutor from the 1980s Justice Department, Bob Flores, met earlier this year with Alex Wong, Romney's foreign and legal policy director..
“Wong assured us that Romney is very concerned with this, and that if he’s elected these laws will be enforced,” Trueman told the website. ”They promised to vigorously enforce federal adult obscenity laws.”

Personally while I don't agree with prostitution (meaning I would never do it myself or hire a prostitute) I don't see what the big deal is. I mean it's a business transaction between two consenting adults. It's kind of like the argument for legalizing weed (another thing if it was legal I wouldn't partake of). If you legalized prostitution it would actually makes things a lot safer. For one it would protect women from being preyed upon and beaten and abused by their "pimps." It would also be able to be taxed which would bring in some extra revenue.
