On Friday, reported that newly revealed police report from 1983 reveal former Arizona state Rep. David Stringer was accused of paying for sex from two teenage boys in Baltimore, Maryland:

The police report states that Stringer "did engage in sexual act with... a child under 14 years of age."
According to the Baltimore, Maryland police report, the two underage victims were at a park when "a man stopped and asked if they wanted to go to his house and have some sex. The boys went with the man."

The police report goes on to state that they went to the bedroom of an apartment and that "they did perform the sex act on Stringer."

The report states that the boys were given $10 apiece, and then the boys left.

The police report also shows that one of the victims visited Stringer ten times, and was asked each time to perform sex acts with him. Another victim was made to take a shower with him.

Stringer, in anticipation of this news, resigned his office yesterday as the Arizona House Ethics Committee probed the sealed allegations.

Stringer has been a controversial figure long before this. He has been facing calls to resign since last June, when he told a gathering of students at Arizona State University that modern immigrants are an "existential threat" and that immigrants of color especially are problematic because "They don't blend in. They always look different."
