Democrat Arrested in Trafficking Sting

Democrat Arrested in Trafficking Sting

(HorizonPost.com) – Former Speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives and current Liberal lobbyist Dave Hunt (D) found himself on the wrong side of the law on April 28 at a southeast Portland hotel. His campaign website from when he was an active politician paints him as a virtuous man, a leader in his church and the devoted husband of Tonia since 1992. That’s where the hypocrisy comes into play.

After the Portland Police Bureau’s Human Trafficking Unit arrested him in late April 2021, he now faces formal charges, including “commercial sexual solicitation,” for allegedly offering an undercover police officer money for those types of services. If the allegation is true, it’s certainly not the action of a Christian or a loving spouse.

According to the Portland Tribune, he sponsored a 2007 bill that criminalized trafficking. The irony doesn’t stop there because, in 2011, he also voted for the very law that he now stands accused of breaking.
