Francis to Prosecutor: "No, YOU'RE the Pornographer"

11/13/2007 4:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Girls Gone Wild" boss Joe Francis says Florida's top prosecutor is a distributor of smut. Hello, pot!

Francis, who is chillin' in the pokey without bail, now wants the state's attorney general to act on his claim that prosecutor Steve Meadows knowingly exhibited "child pornography" to ABC News reporter Martin Bashir during a segment of "Nightline" that aired last week.

Oh yeah -- the images in question are the very ones for which he's prosecuting Francis.

"One would presume that (Meadows), better than anyone else, would know that the presentation or exhibition of child pornography is a crime," Francis' lawyers maintain in a motion that also requests their client be freed.

For someone who got his millions out of taking advantage of drunk and drugged women, could not stand being the underdog. Now, how does it feel to be the "underdog". I've waited so long for this day to come, and you wouldn't believe how happy I am that his in jail. I bet those guards who has daughters are extremely happy Joe is now their boy toy.

I don't like him and would like to say it looks good on him, but we should all be concerned about what is happening to him, because it could happen to any of us. I can't believe why more people arn't outraged about this. The guy is a creep, yes, but what the police are doing in Florida is terrible.

Joe, I think those small minded sheriffs in the "boondocks " are going to stick it to you in order to teach you a little humility !!! However, with all the dirt you continue to kick up down there, it is going to work against you...John Cougar says it all too well "I fought the law and the law won"..........SHUT UP ALREADY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Standards are badly needed.    

Uh, Joe, not a good idea to throw fuel on a flame that's already burning the definition of remorseful, penitant, contrite, regretful, repentant, chastened, penitent, or if you're too busy mouthing off, try looking up 'sorry' before you stupidly spew anything else. You've straddled and blurred a lot of legal lines, and your attitude will serve in determining your fate. I would think your goal would be to get your life back in order. That's how it works. If you behave your way back, maybe a light might even come on inside your head, and you may even have an 'Aha!' moment and realize why a lot of people are so upset about what you do and the way you do it.

Joe is a slime ball and deserves to be in prison. He's made a living off of taking advantage of people. He can rot in hell as far as I'm concerned.
