    Since prostitution can be be viewed as violence against women I wonder if the NFL will act accordingly?

    I can't believe I'm sticking up for a Trump supporting billionaire Republican, but if two consenting adults want to have sex then it's not my business to judge if money is exchanged. It reminds me of how hypocritical "family values" Republicans who try to jam their religious dogma down our throats are, but that doesn't mean my opinions on legalized prostitution change just because a conservative Trump supporter paid to get his jollies off.

    However, if this "massage parlor" was in fact a sex trafficking ring holding women against their will then it's an entirely different story.

    Sex between consenting adults should not be anyone's business or illegal. The knife cuts both ways. Double standards are typical for their side. If laws were broken - enforcing them is legitimate. If Bernie Sanders had done the same they would be looking for a suitable tree for the hanging.

    Will the evangelical masses be consistent ? Only with their double standards. Evil and nefarious when it's you. None of your business and ignored and immediately forgiven when it's them.

    I think most Americans agree with you. Trump's way is to scam it for free and then destroy the women.

    This is more details on what's being discussed. Everyone deserves their day in court. A man with his money should have made more favorable arrangements.

    I agree with some of the previous comments about "consenting adults". Robert Kraft will be 78 years old on June 5, and he has been a widower for 8 years. If he is willing to pay for oral sex at a "rub and tug" massage parlor (in China, it was called a massage with a happy ending"), I'm not at all critical of his actions.

    Where this whole story starts to get a little slimy, though, is the story that popped up today on CNN. The prosecutors in the case disclosed this morning that they plan to release a video showing Kraft in the process of receiving sexual services.

    I'm not really sure why that is necessary. To quote Bill Clinton, "I did not have sex with that woman", but he DID get a blow job. You'll also notice that the article mentions that "hundreds of people were charged in the sting involving several massage parlors and day spas in Florida." Since owner Cindy Yang sold access to Donald Trump, it is quite possible that Trump and/or some associates or relatives suddenly are on the receiving end of some unfavorable publicity.

    As usual, reading anything about Trump makes me feel like I need to take a shower again to wash off the slime.

    Hmm, a rich guy that couldn't be at least a bit more discreet? Don't we have a sitting president who surrounded himself with pretty women and paid them to keep quiet? Must be the new norm. Cheat, lie, pay off, get caught, go free $$$$ talks. Evangelicals must love both, especially those female trump supporters.

    Regardless of what you think of Robert Kraft, why was there a video of him getting a blow job even in existence? Were there hidden cameras in the rooms at the spa? If you wanted to extort someone, wouldn't a porn tape (or a "pee pee" tape) be a great way to do it?

    Allen Funt got some great shows with "Candid Camera" more than 50 years ago, but those cameras are now being put to more sinister uses.

    What is the legality of videoing a person in private conditions. Wouldn't Kraft have an expectance of privacy. So they probably had a court order for taking Kraft's video. Seems like a lot of trouble was gone through to simply embarass Kraft. Must be a no crime area.

    Ah, the plot thickens.

    The FBI is now investigating Cindy Yang, who has been a frequent guest at Mar-A-Lago. On the night of Trump's inauguration, Yang hosted a party in D.C.. There’s no trace of the money raised that night, as required by law, The Palm Beach Post has found.

    That includes donations by their biggest listed sponsors. Among them: an embattled Saipan-based casino later raided by the FBI, a Guam-based shipyard and a handful of Pacific Island hotel operators, all of which benefited from a foreign labor bill signed into law by Trump a year later.

    No doubt that the word has gotten around that Mar-A-Largo is the place to go to pay for off-the-record to access Donald Trump. Love to see how much these people are spending at Mar-A-Largo. Maybe they only spend a few hundred thousand for a few nights in the premiere suites, but upon check out they give Mar-A-Largo an extremely large sum of money (millions) as a "tip" for the great service provided during their stay, where they just happen to meet Donald Trump privately for half hour.
