Anti-Porn Executive Busted for Prostitution


— November 24, 2003

Here’s the “conservative hypocrite” of the day (via The Obscure Store):

A vice chairman of a Louisville anti-pornography group was arrested Saturday night on a prostitution charge.

Police took John W. Riddle, 65, into custody after seeing him in a car at 17th and Rowan streets with a “known prostitute,” according to the arrest report.

Riddle, of Clay Avenue in Okolona, is a vice chairman of the anti-pornography organization COMPASS. The organization, whose full name is Citizens of Metro for Property and Safety and Security, has been trying to stop adult bookstores and sex shops from opening near residential neighborhoods.

Riddle resigned his post yesterday, “and we have accepted,” said Barbara Davis, another vice chairman of the group.

Good thing Mr. Riddle took such an interest in policing our morals for us. Details here from The Courier-Journal of Louisville, KY.
