Former Oregon House Speaker Dave Hunt, a Democrat, was among eight men arrested by the Portland Police Bureau for soliciting sex for payment from an undercover police officer last month.
The arrests were made as part of an undercover operation that utilized decoy advertisements on known human trafficking websites.
“The Portland Police Bureau, in conjunction with other federal and local law enforcement agencies, is committed to deterring prostitution and human trafficking activities,” the PPB said in a statement.
Hunt was not initially named by the PPB, but his identity was revealed by the Portland Tribune following an information request.
The Tribune reported that Hunt is currently the CEO of Columbia Public Affairs, where he is also a registered state lobbyist.
Hunt was a member of the Clackamas Community College board at the time of his arrest and previously served as president of American Baptist Churches USA, according to his biography on the Columbia Public Affairs website. He is married with two children.
Clackamas Community College released a statement on Facebook earlier this week announcing that Hunt would be taking a leave of absence from the board.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
