Local media sources in Arizona have reported that State Senator David Farnsworth was threatened by a fellow lawmaker for stating his concern that the Arizona Department of Child Safety is facilitating the global sex trafficking of children from Arizona foster care.

Concerned for his safety, Senator Farnsworth reported her to the Department of Public Safety.

From Jim Small of AZMirror:

A conservative Republican senator who is convinced that the Arizona Department of Child Safety is facilitating the global sex trafficking of children removed from negligent parents called the police on one of his GOP colleagues, alleging that she threatened his life.

Sen. David Farnsworth, a Republican from Mesa, filed a report with the Arizona Department of Public Safety this week accusing Sen. Kate Brophy McGee, R-Phoenix, of threatening him if he didn’t stop investigating the outrageous claim. The news was first reported by Yellow Sheet Report, a high-priced insider newsletter aimed at lobbyists and government officials.

Farnsworth told Yellow Sheet that he has been looking into how DCS “lost” more than 550 children last year, roughly half of whom are categorized as either runaways or otherwise missing. The rest appear to be flagged for paperwork errors.

From Andrew Oxford of the Arizona Republic:

An Arizona state senator called police alleging that a fellow senator threatened him to stop his regular meetings with critics of the state foster care system who believe it is playing a role in a broad sex-trafficking conspiracy.

Sen. David Farnsworth told officers this week that Sen. Kate Brophy McGee told him to stop holding meetings at the Capitol with people she has called “unbalanced.”

Farnsworth said Brophy McGee told him: “‘I’m not asking you to stop. I’m telling you to stop.'”

“I asked her what that meant. She said, ‘My husband said that you would understand,'” Farnsworth recounted.

The Mesa Republican took that as a threat and reported it to the state Department of Public Safety.

Farnsworth said he fears children in foster care are being abducted by a worldwide trafficking network and sold into sexual slavery.

From the Associated Press:

Farnsworth has been meeting every two weeks with a group of critics of the Arizona Department of Child Safety, including a group that has accused the foster-care agency of direct involvement in child trafficking.

Some on social media have claimed there’s a broad conspiracy involving judges, caseworkers, lawmakers, the governor and prosecutors to cover up sex trafficking.

Farnsworth told the Arizona Capitol Times that Brophy McGee told him to “lose the entourage” of conspiracy theorists and “crazy parents” whose children were taken by state child welfare authorities.

“I’m not asking you to stop. I’m telling you to stop. Stop or my husband will stop you,” Farnsworth recalled Brophy McGee telling him in a meeting on Tuesday.
