Former House Speaker cited in sex-traffic sting

By NW Spotlight,

The Portland Tribune reports that Oregon’s ex-House Speaker and (currently serves on Clackamas Community College board) Dave Hunt was charged by Portland police in an undercover sex traffic sting last month. Hunt declined any comment to the Tribune.

Tribune reports, “The Portland Police Bureau issued a press release Saturday that said its Human Trafficking Unit had cited eight men in an operation conducted in April. Officers posted online decoy ads on known human trafficking websites, and the subjects who contacted undercover police officers to arrange payment for sexual acts were criminally cited on the charge of commercial sexual solicitation. “

— As with anyone, he is innocent until proven guilty.
