Submission + - DoJ closing porn stars bank accounts.

MouseTheLuckyDog writes: In a recent story on reason.com it was reported that the DoJ is closing down the bank accounts of porn stars.
Not knowing the site I googled around and found another site, the Guardian.

The story does not end there. It turns out that this is part of a larger scheme ( ironically ) called Operation Choke Point. Also reported in a Washington Post article that downplays the practice.

According to Cryptocoin news. There are thirty industries the DoJ is now targeteting:
        *Ammunition Sales *Cable Box De-scramblers *Coin Dealers *Credit Card Schemes
        *Credit Repair Services *Dating Services *Debt Consolidation Scams *Drug Paraphernalia
        *Escort Services *Firearms Sales *Fireworks Sales *Get Rich Products *Government Grants
        *Home-Based Charities *Life-Time Guarantees *Life-Time Memberships *Lottery Sales
        *Mailing Lists/Personal Info *Money Transfer Networks *On-line Gambling *PayDay Loans
        *Pharmaceutical Sales *Ponzi Schemes *Pornography *Pyramid-Type Sales *Racist Materials
        *Surveillance Equipment *Telemarketing *Tobacco Sales *Travel Clubs

But more can be added. ( I notice alcohol sales is not on the list).
