For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, Pats owner Bob Kraft has been charged with solicitation of a prostitute as part of a federal case against a string of massage parlors that are accused of bringing women here from China and then coercing them into prostitution. It’s the usual kind of tragic shit. Desperate women get assistance in obtaining a US work visa, and then the only job they get is at a massage parlor where they have to perform sex acts on clients to pay back their employers/sponsors. Kraft has been charged as a patron and not as a conspirator (as far as I know). However, I don’t beleive for a minute that he didn’t know that these women were sex trafficking victims. He’s a horrible person for paying to have sex with women who were clearly forced into prostitution.
Where do we go from here? If he’s found guilty, I have to think the NFL will make him sell the team. They might even try to force him out before the legal process raps up. There’s no way the other 31 owners and Goodell want this to be associated with the league.
