Sex-for-Water-Gate in Arkansas

Government figures aside, people out here in the real world are feeling the pinch of the declining value of the dollar. What happens if water (as opposed to precious metals) becomes the standard for financial transactions? This seems to be the case in Arkansas — but the story actually seems to indicate more of an abuse of power than actually trading sex for water.

Waldron’s mayor was released on a signature bond Wednesday after being accused of soliciting two women for sex after they fell behind on their water bills.

Troy Anderson, 72, is accused of abusing the public trust and patronizing a prostitute. After hearing complaints about delinquent water bills, Anderson solicited sex from the women, authorities said.

And there’s more…

The woman wore a recording device when she met Anderson at the apartment, and Anderson offered her $100 for sex, the affidavit said. She said the mayor grabbed her and exposed himself.

Another woman told investigators that she’d been having sex with Anderson for money for the past eight to 10 years. She said Anderson paid her $25 per encounter and that he allowed her to change the name on her overdue water bill, which kept her water turned on, the affidavit said.

The mayor also gave the woman $60 to pay a late water deposit in exchange for sex, the affidavit said. The woman’s bill was $617 overdue, the affidavit said.

In February, the second woman wore a recording device when Anderson picked her up for a sexual encounter that netted her $20, authorities said.

Sounds almost like our Congress and President, except they screw us and send us and our children the bill.

    The ugly part is these people made some REALLY bad deals. I mean, screwing him for the deposit ONLY? Come on here, at least get the bill knocked down a little here if you’re going to sell your integrity. $20 and $25 per encounter? You have GOT to be joking. If nothing else, legalizing prostitution will set a decent rate here….
