Video interview of John Stagliano after all charges were dropped against him on Friday.



Here is a video at reason.com of John Stagliano talking outside the courtroom after all charges were dropped against him.

Reason.com called every U.S. senator’s office to ask them whether the Department of Justice should pursue cases like this. They made contact with most of the senators’ press secretaries or at least their voice mail boxes. For a dozen or so, they followed up with emails. They told them the deadline. While most of them said they would get back to them, not one single senator called back:

What’s worse is that many of the people we talked to seemed skeptical, confused, or suspicious about why we would want to talk to their senators in the first place. “Is this man from Idaho,” asked a staffer from the office of Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho). “Was his business based in Idaho?” The young lady seemed surprised at our contention that a federal legislator should have an opinion on, well, federal law. The closest we got to an answer was Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), whose press secretary at least engaged in some minimal back-and-forth emailing, which ended abruptly once she established that we were talking about pornography.

After a federal judge dismissed the first obscenity prosecution brought in the nation’s capital in a quarter-century on technical grounds Friday, John released this statement:

“This is bad for my autobiography. . . . I was hoping for a better fight than they put on,” Stagliano said. But, he added, “The government has bottomless resources and can come after me at any time.”

    The government should really have to face penalties when they screw up like this. Them being able to walk away from a travesty they’ve created like this unscathed is ridiculous.

    It’s good to see there are web sites like Reason that will go after stories like this…

    This is an atrocity. Even though I know they won’t, the government should pay Stagliano every cent he paid for his defense. They just go in and ruin people’s lives whenever they feel like. This is shameful.
