West Virginia state senator charged with prostitution

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) West Virginia state Sen. Mike Maroney (R) has been charged with soliciting a prostitute.

A Marshall County court clerk says the Republican lawmaker turned himself in and was arraigned Wednesday morning on three misdemeanor charges. He has pleaded not guilty and paid a $4,500 bond.

A criminal complaint says Maroney exchanged text messages to discuss prices and set up meetings with a woman who has admitted to being a prostitute. He also sent her a picture of himself.

Police have been investigating the woman and say two people have already pleaded guilty to soliciting her for sex.

1. WV Education again failing....

The headline in the paper should read "WV State Senator charged with soliciting a Prostitute for paid Sex"...

Based on the headline it reads he committed "prostitution"...

Or did the paper have to do it to get people to read?

Sigh....

2. You're correct.

BTW, I found a photo of the senator who is also a physician and father. He is also responsible for anti-LGBT legislation.

Patheos is reporting that he resigned, but that is not verified.

5. A good number of politicians (mostly Rs) do prostitute themselves

At some point in their careers.

4. Family values strikes again

I think they spelled his name wrong, Moroney
At some point he'll likely claim he was preaching to them to end their sinful ways or something like that
Which will be followed by his rededication to Christ his insistence that we respect his privacy at this time
