Mann Act- Will Trump Pardon Jack Johnson - Episode 30
<p><strong>Mann Act- Will Trump Pardon Jack Johnson - Episode 30</strong></p> <p>Trumps in the news again. Matt pulls up a story about Tumps effort to pardon the boxer, Jack Johnson. Championship Boxer, Jack Johnson was prosecuted under the Mann Act in 1912. The Mann Act was created to further regulate interstate and foreign commerce by prohibiting the transportation therein for immoral purposes of women and girls. Will Trump Pardon, Johnson?</p> <p> <strong>Highlights:</strong></p> <ul> <li>[06:56] – The Mann Acts original intent was to address prostitution.

But, back in the day it was used for just about everything between a man and a women.</p> <p><strong>Hollywood Improv Ticket Link:</strong></p> <p><a href= "https://www.ticketweb.com/event/legally-insane-with-nick-thune-hollywood-improv-the-lab-tickets/8216265?pl=hollyimprov&REFID=hollywoodimprov&_ga=2.136525936.1919426937.1522706538-541958136.1519503963"> https://www.ticketweb.com/event/legally-insane-with-nick-thune-hollywood-improv-the-lab-tickets/8216265?pl=hollyimprov&REFID=hollywoodimprov&_ga=2.136525936.1919426937.1522706538-541958136.1519503963</a></p> <p><strong>Twitter:</strong></p> <p>@mattritter1</p> <p>@toekneesam</p> <p><strong>Website:</strong></p> <p>www.cascademedia.com</p>
