Obama-era Democrat Charged With Sex Trafficking & Torture


Texas Democrat charged with sex trafficking

Texas Democrat, Attorney Mark Benavides, has been found guilty on six counts of sex trafficking and torture by a judge in San Antonio. 

Mark Benavides, a powerful Democrat who ran for the 186th District Court in 2014 during the Obama administration, was accused by federal law enforcement of trading his legal services as an attorney for sex with vulnerable young women and then secretly filming the ordeals.

Thegoldwater.com reports: The clients of Benavides were all criminals such as prostitutes and drug addicts, all of whom were granted his services by trial judges via court-appointed attorney programs. Benevides would then promise the women that if they allowed him to engage in erotic sex that sometimes included physical torture, that he would offer them a legitimate defense in the courtroom.

Throughout the trial, the San Antonio Police Department’s Detective Manual Morales testified that during one of the search warrant executions at Benavides’ homes they discovered an enormous treasure-trove of digital video recordings which depicted Benavides in scenes of sexual gratification for the perverse Attorney who forced his clients into such ordeals.

Morales said police found 246 total “pornographic DVDs” inside of a filing cabinet in the home, and each of those contained videos or Benavides and those female clients.

Some of the content on the explicit videos had such graphic scenes, that one of the female jurors fainted as the group of twelve left the courtroom on Tuesday after being forced to watch them.

The sex-romps with the clients occurred at numerous locations, according to police, with some of the videos being recorded in both jury boxes and courtrooms, as the former clients also testified to, where Benavides had his clients after-hours, and others have occurred inside of various motel rooms across the state.

Benavides Attorneys during the trial had initially requested the trial be moved from San Antonio to Floresville, since the attorney was so widely renown in the area, and the trial had made headlines across the city.

Both the Prosecution and Defense finished their closing arguments on Tuesday before the jury made their decision after four hours of reviewing the case and finding Benavides guilty on all six counts.

Each of the charges against Benavides will carry between 25 and 99 years in a state penitentiary, where it’s expected he will serve out the remainder of his life behind bars.

Sentencing will begin at 8:30 AM on Wednesday in the Wilson County District Court in Floresville, with Benavides attorneys asking for a suspended sentence in lieu of probation.

Benavides makes it only the latest in numerous Democratic politicians to have been either arrested or convicted of crimes this year, and were only halfway through 2018.

Maybe when that day comes, when American voters go back to being mega STUPID - by handing over power back to the DEMs, it's possible those reprobates will make themselves laws allowing ONLY DEMs to engage in that sort of slime-ball activity. After all, they've shown the world a thousand times over that they're just crazy about that sick stuff.

 I hope they send him to prison, tired of the DNC getting probation...

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
