Report: Rep. David Stringer on child sex trafficking: “I don't like to demonize it”

"If an uncle takes his niece or nephew to a playground, & they go on the merry-go-round & have some ice cream, & then do their thing, that’s just part of the experience." azcentral.com/story/news/pol…
Rep. David Stringer resigned last week, just before a report surfaced that he was arrested in the 1980s on suspicion of paying children for sex.
In the video, a woman suggests Stringer should ask the speaker about child trafficking; he says he doesn't think sex trafficking is a concern. "I don't like to demonize it” he says, adding that there are "a lot of 15-year-old prostitutes." He laughs after making that comment.
In January, Republican lawmakers blocked an effort to expel Prescott Arizona state Representative David Stringer from the House, saying they needed time to investigate.

David Stringer refused to resign last summer after he said “there aren't enough white kids to go around" when discussing integration in schools. Voters re-elected him in Nov.

A few weeks later, he told ASU students that African Americans "don't blend in.”
“Police arrested Rep. David Stringer was arrested in 1983 on suspicion of paying two children to have sex with him...One of the boys had a developmental disability, according to the report.”
More about Rep. David Stringer’s racism in the report: He apparently said "'Mexicans' & poor students should not be educated past the 8th grade, as this was a waste of education funding” & that Mexicans & "special ed" students won’t ever contribute to their communities.
