As we have noted several times before, David Barton is not about to stop repeating one of his talking points merely because it happens to be demonstrably false, and today he provided more evidence that he simply does not seem to care about the truth of the things that he says.As Warren Throckmorton reminds Barton, The Obama Admin’s Justice Dept Has Prosecuted 12,859 Defendants for Child Porn Related Crimes Since FY 2009.
Since 2011, we have heard Barton repeatedly claim that the Department of Justice under President Obama has not prosecuted a single person for child pornography. This statement is categorically false, as anyone willing to spend one minute searching the database of the FBI website will find dozens and dozens of press releases announcing arrests, prosecutions, and convictions for child pornography.
But apparently Barton can't be bothered to get his facts straight and so he continues to repeat this claim, as he did again on his radio program today when he stated that "the last I knew, there has not been a single prosecution of child pornography under this administration. There were many under previous administrations; this administration just shut it down."
