I first read the headline as ‘ring’ & thought, “Democrat.”

Then I realized it said sting & thought, “Republican.”

Still, it’s DC. Do they have Republicans there?

Oh Man, this is too funny. LMAO

Of course he denies the Charges, why not, with a DC jury and a slick lawyer he will probably be found innocent.

North capitol and K sts. Church’s and schools on two of the corners. Not the place you would expect to find a male prostitute looking for Chicken Hawkers.

Is that really how it happened? I thought these high powered DC folks had their own “escorts” that they could “rent” for a night. Asking a hooker off the street is unusual for these government officials especially in DC. I certainly hope the guy had to rent off the street cuz he could not afford what the politicians are offered.

Well, DC has been pretty quiet since its former crackhead, skirt-chasing mayor, Marion Barry, ruled the roost.

This guy may have aspirations for high office.....and given the slap-happy predilection of DC voters, he may just attain his political goals by stepping gayly into the moral vacuum that Barry left.

The article doesn't say if it was a male or female prostitution sting. The guy looks a little light in the birkenstock sandals to me.

A man spending money for a prostitute is probably the stupidest waste of money imaginable.

The founders had it right when they decided that congress should rule DC. Too bad they changed it.

In the past mostly women were arrested for soliciting for prostitution, because they were the ones who made the verbal offer. In order to arrest more men, the law was changed in many States.

In some States, it is not against the law for a man and a woman to make an agreement to have sex in exchange for money. The law is broken when one of them does an "overt act" to complete the agreement, and the person who commits the "overt act" is the one charged for solicitation.

A female decoy will make an offer to have sexual intercourse or oral sex with a man and she will tell him how much it will cost. If he agrees she will tell him to to to a nearby house or motel, or drive around the corner. If he goes to the house or motel, or drives around the corner he gets arrested because he committed the first "overt act" to complete the agreement. In he report the decoy will state that when the male left, she walked in the opposite direction.

These can be highly successful sting operations and a LOT of arrests are made. So, when a headline reads that a man has been arrested for "soliciting a prostitute" it is possible that he didn't do the actual solicitation. If this was a sting operation, it is possible that Chavous agreed to pay for sex, but did not make the solicitation.

Whether the decoy is male or female, the same applies to who acts first. I do understand the question though.
