Is the DOJ Forcing Banks to Terminate the Accounts of Porn Stars? It may be the US DOJ:

It’s called Operation Choke Point, and it has nothing to do with deep-throating.

Instead, it’s a targeted effort to shut down as many as 30 separate industries by making it impossible for them to access banking services.

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Thursday, American Bankers Association CEO Frank Keating wrote that the Justice Department is “telling bankers to behave like policemen and judges.”

Extrajudicial punishment. What could possibly go wrong? Via Reason.
