Pete Townsend Targeted As A Sex Offender For Super Bowl

A child advocacy group has sent out leaflets warning of the arrival of a sex offender to Florida -- legendary guitarist Pete Townshend.
The activists are outraged that the 64-year-old rocker will perform with "The Who" at the halftime show during the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 in Miami.
The group is upset because Townshend was busted in 2003 for accessing child porn on the Internet.
At the time, Townsend was placed on the sex offender registry for five years after he admitted using his credit card to view the images.
Last month, Protect Our Children lobbied the feds and Florida's attorney general, asking them to reject Townshend's visa.
