Can you believe this? I knew Hustler was a trashy magazine, but this takes it to a new level....


Ralston wants GBI to fight Hustler request for Emerson photos
9:06 am March 8, 2010, by Aaron Gould Sheinin

Hustler magazine has requested, through Georgia’s Open Records Act, copies of documents related to the January 2008 murder and decapitation of hiker Meredith Emerson, but House Speaker David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) is urging the GBI to deny the magazine’s request for crime scene photographs.

Ralston said this morning that he has asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to deny Hustler, a noted porn publication, copies of the photographs that show the 24-year-old Emerson’s nude and dismembered body.

The House speaker also said Rep. Jill Chambers (R-Atlanta) will introduce legislation in the House today to clear up what Ralston said was a gray area in state law. Chambers’ bill will exempt from the state’s sunshine laws any request for crime scene photographs that, among other things, depict nude bodies.

The politicians in this State will never let this happen - nor should they.

Maybe when they execute that creep Hilton Hustler would like to publish those photos.
