Arizona Republican State Senator David Farnsworth is reportedly fearing for his life after accusing the Arizona Department of Child Safety of facilitating a global sex trafficking ring.
Farnsworth alleges the children are sold into sex slavered after being removed from negligent parents.
The Senator also called the police on one of his GOP colleagues, alleging she threatened his life.
The Republican Senator accused Sen. Kate Brophy McGee, R-Phoenix, of threatening him if he didn’t stop investigating the alleged global sex trafficking ring.
Farnsworth says the Arizona of Child Safety is to blame for 550 children currently missing.
The news first appeared in the Yellow Sheet Report – an insider newsletter aimed at lobbyists and government officials.
Farnsworth expressed fears children have been abducted and sold into a global sex trafficking ring.
He also said he has been holding meetings with DCS, critics of the agency, and fellow lawmakers, including Brophy McGee.
Not a conspiracy theory
Farnsworth acknowledged his claims might seem outlandish, clarifying he didn’t believe DCS officials were actively selling children, but they were allowing children to be snatched by predators.
The Republican Senator said he’s more convinced than ever that children are removed from their parents and put into foster homes before sex-trafficked.
“When I first heard about this, I believed that children from Arizona (DCS) were ending up in sex trafficking. Now, after the research I’ve done, I’m confident of it,” he told Yellow Sheet. “But I can’t prove it.”
The two former Republican state senators from other states killed within days of each other last month, Farnsworth says, were “executed” because they were investigating global sex trafficking rings linked to their states.
As Az Mirror notes:
The dispute between Farnsworth and Brophy McGee stems from what she said was a conversation in which she told her colleague that both she and her husband were concerned for her safety after some of Farnsworth’s allies in the child-sex-ring investigation began harassing her and spreading rumors that she and others are involved in illicit child kidnapping schemes. Brophy McGee told the insider publication that Farnsworth’s compatriots are “unbalanced” and have forced her to have Senate security guards escort her to and from meetings about DCS, but Farnsworth has been unconcerned.
Bur Farnsworth told Yellow Sheet that, while he initially didn’t take Brophy McGee’s comments seriously, he decided to file a complaint with DPS because the “best deterrent to a threat is for more people to be aware of it.”
