A group against pornography has put Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in its cross hairs, placing him at the top of a list of national offenders at fault for furthering the X-rated industry.

Morality in Media’s “Dirty Dozen List” posting on its website calls Mr. Holder the worst of its “top 12 facilitators of porn” in the entire nation. Why Mr. Holder?

He closed the Justice Department’s Obscenity Prosecution Task Force, Morality in Media said.

“Holder’s actions keep the porn industry thriving,” said Patrick A. Trueman,  president of Morality in Media, in a Raw Story report. “He not only refuses to enforce obscenity laws currently on the books that prohibit the distribution of hardcore pornography, but he even disbanded the office charged with enforcement.”

This isn’t the first time the group has derided Mr. Holder for his “lack of enforcement of adult pornography laws,” Raw Story reports. Its members would like to see the Justice Department put the prosecution of pornographers at the top of its priority list.

Also making the “Dirty Dozen List,” as Raw Story reports: the American Library Association and Wikipedia.
