A US politician is suing Google claiming that it is "the largest and most efficient facilitator and distributor of child pornography in the world."

Jeffrey Toback, a member of the Nassau County Legislature, said Google has paid links to the dubious sites and is therefore profiting from the crime.

His complaint said that Google was a multi-billion dollar company that promotes and profits from child pornography.

A spokesGoogle said it did everything it could to prevent access to child pornography. When it finds or is made aware of any child pornography, it removes it from its products, including the search engine, the spokesGoogle said. It is also reported to Inspector Knacker of the Yard.

The lawsuit fails to mention other sites such as Yahoo or Microsoft's MSN which also do the same thing. Toback said that he filed suit because oversight over Google was far beyond the purview of county legislators.

He claims it is all to keep children safe. Toback does not want cash, but wants the outfit to prohibit "advertising relating to Web sites that display, market or otherwise provide illegal access to pornography."
