A surprising arrest of a rich and influential man, especially in light of the connection to sex trafficking and all the conspiracy theories that surround it these days.
Robert Kraft, the owner of the Super Bowl-champion New England Patriots, has been arrested in Florida for soliciting a prostitute, the Jupiter, Fla., police department said Friday. The arrest was part of a bigger operation to uncover human sex trafficking that included the facility used by Kraft, the police said, but the NFL owner was not, as of Friday, linked to that trafficking operation. Police said Kraft was involved in two incidents in the last month at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter and there is video evidence showing the Patriots owner in the act, the CBS affiliate in Boston reported.
And to think that Patriots fans thought they were sick of hearing about TapeGate and DeflateGate…. I note that former Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was forced out of ownership for less.
But wait, there’s more:
Adam Schefter said on ESPN that Kraft isn’t the most famous person — there’s someone else whose name hasn’t surfaced yet who’s better known than Kraft. “I’m also told that Robert Kraft is not the biggest name involved down there in South Florida,” Schefter said.
