Senator Blumenthal attends hearing on sex trafficking bill

(WTNH) — Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal attended a Senate hearing on Tuesday to discuss a sex trafficking bill.

“Shutting down one website is not enough,” stated Sen. Blumenthal. “Shutting down back page even if it were to occur is not enough. We need to pass this measure. If we fail to do so, if we fail to close this gap and fill this legal black hole, we become complicit.”
