83 year old candidate charged with prostitution
This morning I found this odd bit of news......If you're a politician, you're never too old for a sex scandal.
On Tuesday, police arrested Ben Clifford Dawson (pictured left), an 83-year-old candidate eying a seat on the Centerville, Iowa, city council, for alleged prostitution, according to TV station KTVO.
He's no gigolo, but he's in trouble.
Dawson, allegedly told Melissa Drew that he'd shave some money off her debt to him if he could perform unspecified sexual acts on her, a police report said.
Dawson made the offer several times after he loaned her several thousand dollars in June, Chief of Police Tom Demry said to HuffPost. At the time of the original transaction, Drew says Dawson grabbed her and kissed her neck, station KCCI says.
Prostitution is a misdemeanor and Demry told The Huffington Post that the law dosen't distinguish between johns and hookers.
A 10-day investigation by the Centerville police department led to charges of prostitution and intent to commit sexual abuse against Dawson, who was freed after posting $2,000 bond.
It's unclear how the arrest will affect Dawson's odds of getting a seat on the five-person city council. The election is scheduled for Nov. 8.
