GOP Lawmaker Charged with Extorting Page for Sex

A grand jury indictment unsealed Monday accuses Rhode Island state Sen. Nicholas Kettle (R) of extorting sex from a page in the Senate’s page program, the AP reports.

Providence Journal: “The alleged victim was a legislative page in 2011 and 2012, when he was 16 or 17 years old. Legislative pages range in age from 15 to college-age, and run errands for the lawmakers in the State House, including shuttling paperwork and bringing water.”
