There is it. And being driven by a NY paper no less. Kraft is going to be the face of human trafficking, I promise you.

He'll get a few weeks of bad press, then something like this will come out and take over the gossip rags...

I am still waiting for anyone to connect Robert craft with human trafficking. All I see so far or two minor misdemeanor charges for solicitation nothing more nothing less.

That article paints a pretty ugly picture. Seems like Kraft will have earned that job if true.

Soliciting prostitution is offering money for a sex act. If happy ending between consenting adults came with price of massage then there was no soliciting. If girl was under age then different story altogether. If she was of age I would not be surprised to see some sort of recourse by kraft.

Not a fan of prostitution and especially not of human trafficking but it's odd to hear the customers of the sex trade are the problem while the customers of illegal drug trafficking aren't. Having it both ways gets old.

How many people get hurt because we force them into the underground and try to legislate morality? Yes the men who participate in the system with no thought of how these woman are being provided to them are duscusting but the politicians who force people underground and create this environment with their high and mighty moral are equally as bad.

That is the crux of this issue right here. These girls are not consenting adults. They are brought from Asia with false promises of a better life in America. The reality is they are brought here as indentured servants (slaves) and forced to perform these services or there are brutal punishments inflicted. Human trafficking is a huge issue in front of law enforcement these days.

I am telling you, this is not a guy getting a handy from a girl on the corner. This is going the case that will put human trafficking on the front burner in America and unfortunately Kraft will be the face of that.

He's done.

I wonder when it will get tied to the illegal manipulation of the immigration process...

***there's a bunch of this same human trafficking activity (albeit with different levers) in your good ol neighborhood Florida strip clubs.

Combine this with the idiocy of their narrative that gender does not matter and you have irrefutable proof that those that peddle this stuff are both stupid and hypocritical

8 Months? They were so concerned for the girls safety and welfare it took them 8 months!!! I think this was more about news and making a statement then concern for the woman.

I had a co-worker who worked at KOD. He had some crazy stories. The Russians are deep in the SFL strips clubs (not KOD of course). Don't trust the Russian chicks

Like the NY times could find its ass with both hands. Hobe Sound..controlled by Jupiter Island. Jupiter Island..really deep pocket and well connected. Jupiter Island is not Jupiter. What's hoity toity for those of you up north? The Hamptons? More ostentatious than Jupiter Island. This MAY be the tip of the iceberg in this scandal., and Kraft is just Chopped liver.
