A Fresh Perspective on the Mann Act


"From Jack Johnson to Eliot Spitzer"
Though primarily intended to fight prostitution, the Act substantially expanded the scope of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and soon became the starting point for a wide-range of cases, including many against consenting but unmarried couples. The first person prosecuted under the law was legendary boxer Jack Johnson.

Interesting stuff.
