Thune's amendment to SESTA seen as unworkable by EFF


Senator John Thune (R-SD) has floated an amendment t SESTA (S 1693) that would criminalize online platforms that “assist, support, of facilitate” sex trafficking, and reinforce “state of mind” provisions.  The “manager’s amendment” is explained in an EFF article Nov. 3 by Sophia Cope.
  
    

Thune seems to believe his amendment will make the law less of a problem for “legitimate” hosts and forums, as they purport to implement what Thune calls a “knowing” standard.
