Yahoo News: Sex Slavery and the Super Bowl

In The News

This weekend, the San Francisco Bay Area could see as much as an $800 million boost to its local economy, thanks to Super Bowl 50, which this year pits the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers. There is, however, a darker side to that boost in the business of human trafficking, a $32 billion a year industry that some reports indicate sees an uptick during major events like the Super Bowl. Republican Congresswomen Kristi Noem of South Dakota and Barbara Comstock of Virginia joined Yahoo News & Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga to discuss legislation aimed at combating the growing industry amid the news that Broncos practice-squad safety Ryan Murphy was sent home ahead of Sunday’s game after being questioned and released by police during a prostitution sting that involved his brother.
