While pornography giant PornHub has faced increasing scrutiny as of late over the ease with which human traffickers and child abusers can use the platform to disseminate images of abuse and rape, this apparently has not been enough to deter interest from a major Canadian political figure who is close to current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Chuck Rifici was once the CFO of Canada’s Liberal Party under Trudeau, The Post-Millennial reports, and has been dubbed “the godfather of Canadian weed” for his investments in the cannabis industry.

Now, according to a report from Business Insider, Rafici is heading up an investment group that is in talks to negotiate the possible acquisition of the massive pornography platform.

PornHub, which is currently owned by MindGeek, brings hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue annually by dealing in images and videos users can upload directly to the site.

MindGeek also owns sites such as PornMD, RedTube, YouPorn, Reality Kings, WhyNotBi.com, Euro Sex Parties, Adult.com, and See My Wife, according to the website Boss Hunting.

A lack of proper protocol to ensure the legal age of the subjects of the pornographic material on PornHub.com has led to many heart- and gut-wrenching cases of human trafficking, documented rapes, and child sexual abuse being made available for users to view.

While the former CFO of a major political party in one of the west’s most affluent nations may be heading up an investment firm that doesn’t have a problem with this chilling and sick practices, PornHub’s poor mitigation of abuse porn was too much for MasterCard and Visa, both of which have cut off the website from using their payment services.

When asked for comment from Business Insider, Rafici demurred from offering any confirmation or details of the rumors that his company could soon be acquiring PornHub.

“I’m always looking at different deals and my team at [investment firm] Bruinen is exploring a number of opportunities,” he told them via email.

“But until there is something to announce progress on, I have no further comment.”
