The Democrats’ corruption is deep, intrinsic, and completely ignored by the enemedia. For years now to be a Democrat has been to jump on an unending gravy train with no accountability.
“Pelosi-Backed PAC Took Funds From Owner of Site Tied to Underage Prostitution,” by Joe Schoffstall, Washington Free Beacon, April 25, 2017:
A political action committee that is backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) took funds from the co-owner of a website that is linked to underage prostitution.
The House Majority PAC, an Alexandria, Virginia-based Super PAC created in 2011 to “answer the barrage of GOP outside spending” and help Democrats regain seats in the House of Representatives, accepted a $10,000 contribution last year from James Larkin, the co-owner of the Backpage.com, a website linked to underage trafficking and prostitution.
Larkin, along with Michael G. Lacey, were co-owners of the scandal-plagued Backpage when legal troubles began to mount against the site for accepting prostitution advertisements that included postings for sex with underage girls.
The duo began stepping up their political contributions after the site came under fire for its ads and have since donated more than $160,0000 to Democrats in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, the Arizona Republic reported.

The Washington Free Beacon reported last week that David Garcia, who is currently running for governor in Arizona against Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, also received money from Lacey. Following the report, Garcia announced that the $2,000 contribution would be given to youth homelessness and a group that works with survivors of sex trafficking.
A study of Backpage in 2012 conducted by Arizona State University and the Phoenix Police Department discovered that almost 80 percent of the advertisements posted to the site involved prostitution. In Phoenix alone, more than 900 ads for prostitution were found, including ads for underage girls.
The National Association of Attorneys General called on Congress in July 2013 to amend federal law to hold companies such as Backpage accountable for their actions….
