Officials say Craigslist is still allowing ads selling sex

Now, he said, "they give the price," adding that dollar signs are increasingly popping up.

Law enforcement officials say they have not received information about the Craigslist monitors, including how many there are, their qualifications and what type of ads they refuse to post.

"It's painfully obvious they're just blowing me off, humoring me,' said Dart, adding that Craigslist hasn't responded to his requests for information.

Blumenthal said Craigslist has responded to his requests, and while he won't say what the company has told him, he said he is still waiting for answers to many of the same questions as Dart.

"At the very least what we want to know what is the list of prohibited terms, what are their criteria and procedures," he said. "If they need it, we will give them a list of terms."

Blumenthal said a coalition of 40 attorneys general was considering its options and could announce its next move by next week.

As for Dart, his detectives are conducting sting operations and making arrests.
