How are these people in the same species as me? Don't get me wrong; I shoplifted comic books in my gritty NYC childhood, so I'm no stranger to a life of crime, but ... ewww.

He wasn't trafficking, according to the article he just answered a personal ad looking for a john. That was legal before this guy?

Finally, a Democrat to represent. But these have been rookie numbers, unlike the other party. The (D)s have a lot of work to do to close the gap.
Give them a fair trial, and when convicted, burn them. No favorites, or team players. Same with the players in the Epstein saga.

I may get some flak for this, but what this guy did wasn't really that big of a deal. He wasn't "human traficking", he responded to a personals ad advertising 'services'. While trafficked people are used by pimps, the law has been expanded to people responding to these 'services' as traffickers. 1) sex work should be legal and regulated, and 2) as a society we should be better at providing needs to those who find themselves in a position where they see no other way to make ends meet than to sell themselves - drug treatment, education, job training, universal basic income (stuff conservatives don't want but would certainly cure many societal ills). Expanding laws to create more criminals is the sort of crap why the USA leads the world in incarceration rates bay far.

Guy was a pandering idiot when he passed a bill making every John a "sex trafficker", he was an even bigger idiot having passed such a bill to then go out and respond to random ads rather than develop a relationship with a madam if he was going to use the services of sex workers.

According to the article it seems he was charged with solicitation, not human trafficking, which sounds like the right charge to me.  The charges came as part of a human trafficking enforcement effort, but those aren't the specific charges he's facing.

Speaking of Gaetz, you sure are conspiculously absent from threads about this pedo, as well as insurrectionist threads, or Colludy Rudy threads,... pretty much every thread from an article that exposes your precious GQP as a bunch of pedos, clueles and violent hicks, traitors, and pathological liars.

I was more or less going to say the same thing. 'Sex trafficking websites' means he responded to the equivalent of a backpage ad, whatever site that took over from backpage. It's scare quotes to paint all sex work as 'trafficking'. I am pretty sure he didn't put in an order on 'buy a sex slave.com' If, in fact, he was knowingly trafficking unwilling people into sex work, that is one thing, but there is nothing in the article to suggest that. Just plain old American puritanism.

If it's illegal to respond to those ads, why can they be printed?

Or was it Facebook or similar? (cant be arsed to set up an VPN to circumvent the EU block)

Did the sex ads he responded to suggest all the "inventory" was ethically sourced?

And, of course, it's also worth remembering that we've seen a lot of recent evidence that police lie, and the Portland PD in particular is real angry at Democrats because of the recent protests.
It's one thing to report the news that a former elected official is facing charges, it's another thing to have the last two paragraphs of your article be a goddamn press release for the oh-so-wondrous sex crimes unit of the local fuzz.
