Pelosi’s PAC Won’t Return Money From Website Well Known For Child Sex Trafficking
Backpage not only engaged in sex trafficking, but a lot of it was child sex trafficking.
How long will Democrats continue to use profits from child sex trafficking for the advancement their campaigns?
RS: If ever a campaign contribution needed to be sent back…
During a season when sex abuse and harassment scandals are rocking politics, sports, and entertainment, it would seem that the wise among us would be super-cautious about our associations.
For politicians, that means keen focus on donors, as well.
You know, unless you’re a Democrat, then you can reason it all away with one hand, while you’re taking the check with the other.
Case in point: a vile classified website called BackPage-dot-com has gained notoriety for facilitating sex trafficking and prostitution.
House Majority PAC, a group dedicated to retaking Congress for Democrats, took $10,000 from one of the site’s founders:
After California’s then-Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced felony pimping charges last year against the two owners of [Backpage] — a classified-ad website that is a hub for sex trafficking and prostitution, one of the men cut a $10,000 check to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s super PAC.
Mrs. Pelosi’s political action committee, House Majority PAC, has resisted giving the money back, and an aide to Mrs. Pelosi said the California Democrat knows nothing about the contribution.
Backpage is notorious for not just prostitution, but the disgusting practice of child sex trafficking. According to an NYT report girls as young as 14 were sold for sex on the site. When law enforcement shut down links that facilitated the sale of underage girls, Backpage’s founders called it “an assault on the First Amendment…”
Being a liberal democrat means never having to give any money back no matter where it came from… It’s just who they are.
