Arizona Dem Took Contributions From Owner of Site Linked to Underage Prostitution

Owners began increasing political contributions to Democrats when legal troubles piled up (Updated)

David Garcia, a Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona, accepted campaign contributions from the owner of a website that is tied to underage trafficking and prostitution.

Michael G. Lacey, who in 2012 sold his newspaper holdings and spun off the classified ad website Backpage.com into its own entity, has given $162,000 in contributions to a number of Democratic politicians at the state and federal levels since legal problems against the site began to mount, the Arizona Republic reported.

The publication missed one Democratic politician in the state who received funds from Lacey as he began to ramp up his political contributions: David Garcia, who is currently challenging Republican Gov. Doug Ducey.

When Garcia ran for state superintendent of public instruction in 2014, Lacey gave his campaign$2,000 in donations. Lacey did not contribute to any other state-level candidate that year other than Garcia. Rather, he donated to a Democratic group in Sedona, Arizona and Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego.

Whats underage? Girls as young as 14 are saying yes in some states, and in Mexico consent is 12 years old.

I have been to in China last year and was offered a 12 year old girl by the Bellman at my hotel! He said it was legal, I checked, he was right!
