Former Oregon House Speaker Dave Hunt cited in sex trafficking sting


The Democratic former speaker of Oregon’s House of Representatives was one of eight men nabbed in a sex trafficking sting by police last month, a local newspaper reported Monday. 

According to the Portland Tribune, which cited a portion of the police report, 53-year-old David Hunt was arrested at a Ramada Inn in Southeast Portland on April 28 and cited on a charge of commercial sexual solicitation.   

Hunt declined to discuss his predicament when he was contacted by the Tribune, telling the outlet, “I don’t think I should talk about that.”

According to the Portland Police Bureau, officers posted fake ads on “known human trafficking websites.” 

The eight men who were cited had contacted undercover officers to “arrange payment for sexual acts.”
