South Carolina Republican Representative Bill Chumley filed a bill this month to force all manufacturers selling computers, smart phones and other internet-capable devices in the state to install active software designed to block “obscene” content. Anyone who distributes or sells an internet-accessible device without a porn filter will face legal punishment.

The bill, titled The Human Trafficking Prevention Act, says this draconian boner-killing law is part of an effort to fund the state Attorney General’s human trafficking task force to prevent child pornography and sex slavery.

This isn’t a total ban on internet porn. Consumers or retailers can deactivate a device’s censorship software by paying a one-time $20 digital access fee. Any manufacturer who refuses to install the porn-blocking software would pay a $20 fine to the state to bypass it.

Considering the popularity of internet porn, this seems like a really bad way to win over young voters.
