Charleston City Council Removes Adultery Laws – In an effort to modernize their code, the Charleston City Council removed regulations that would outlaw adultery and fornication. Mayor Danny Jones laughed, “How did they ever put something like this on the books?” Perhaps the laws were in need of an update and overhaul, but the story goes on to explain that the City Council is now concerned about laws preventing the sale and resale of pornography and/or immoral books. Mayor Jones, such laws were put into place to encourage good behavior and punish bad behavior. Will you likewise chuckle when obscenity laws are tossed out the window as “old-fashioned”?
