Naked Exploitation Exposed in Explosive New Backpage Case

It’s been a while since we’ve received any update on the numerous Backpage sex trafficking cases working their way through the courts at the moment but all that ended when an official opinion filed by the State of Texas crossed our desks recently. This case is particularly terrifying as it shows the true nature of the business Tony Ortega worked to prop up with his phony “we stand on our First Amendment Rights” schtick.

The case in question is about two women who were falsely advertised as prostitutes without their knowledge or consent via Backpage. Careful readers will note that all this was happening after Tony Ortega had begun his campaign of lying to the public that ads for paid sex on Backpage were vetted by the company.

The first woman is named Amy, and she was startled one evening when she received dozens of unsolicited text messages and phone calls within a short span of twenty minutes. The text messages complimented Amy on her beauty, and inquired about her “overnight” services. Amy mostly ignored the communications, all of which were from unfamiliar numbers, until she decided to answer one of the phone calls. When Amy asked the caller why he was contacting her, the caller responded that her information had been posted to Backpage.com, the now defunct website primarily used for sex trafficking and other illegal activities before it was shut down by the government.

Amy had never heard of Backpage, but with the assistance of the caller, she navigated the website and found the advertisement that contained her contact information. The advertisement was entitled “Looking for a sexy nurse?” Within the body of the advertisement, there were three pictures of Amy, all from her Facebook account, including one that showed her in a Halloween costume as a nurse.

Beneath the pictures, the advertisement contained the following text:

“All donations are for time and companionship only. Anything else that may occur is between two consenting adults. By contacting me you agree that you are not affiliated with any form of law enforcement. First time trying this. I am sweet and discreet . . . a total blast. Whatever makes you happy, I certainly adore and will accommodate. VERY FETISH FRIENDLY and drama-free. I guarantee you an extraordinary time and full satisfaction, sure to knock your socks off. PICS are 100% ME and RECENT or it’s on the house. $70hr/$140hr/overnight SPECIALS.”

The bottom of the advertisement listed Amy’s name, phone number, and the neighborhood where she lived. Amy was in a state of utter disbelief when she saw the advertisement.

As anyone one unfamiliar with the scheming duplicitous nature of the Backpage organization and the sniveling lapdogs like Tony Ortega who shilled for them in public and took hush-money payoffs when the heat started to come down.

We will find more on this story as it develops but the picture it paints so far is already very much in line with what we know of the frauds who ran the organization and bought-and-paid-for propagandists like Tony Ortega who tried to con the nation into thinking they were the victims of prosecutorial overreach.

Nice try Tony Ortega, but we have a feeling this case will expose you and your Backpage bosses and the operation they ran for exactly what it was — the naked exploitation of individuals for cash.

After all, isn’t that what you whole ‘career’ has been about from the beginning?
