Iowa Voice: Grassley Wants IRS To Go After Pimps

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Voice

I must say, this is the most bizarre thing I've ever seen out of an Iowa politician...and that's saying a lot:

Pimps and sex traffickers could soon find themselves being chased by tax collectors, not just the vice squad.

Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee, wants the Internal Revenue Service to chase after pimps and sex traffickers with the same fervor it stalked gangster Al Capone for tax evasion.

Grassley, R-Iowa, would hit pimps with fines and lengthy prison sentences for failing to file employment forms and withhold taxes for the women and girls under their command.
