I wonder if Rep. Bertram would feel the same if it was his 14 year old daughter this man was meeting? Was his man going to imaginarily rape and molest this young girl?
What is the law for having sex with a minor and not using the internet to entice them? Doubt it is a mandatory 10 in the pen!

Bertram is an idiot. maybe the next time somebody gets caught for trying to solicit a hitman, they won't go to jail because its only an imaginary crime. I agree with Big Hank.......SLAPS AT LEAST he needs to get a kick right in the ***
