Excerpt from Las Vegas Review-Journal, July 7, 2019
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders hosted a public town hall that drew more than 550 and a private roundtable meeting with veterans in Las Vegas.
Sanders’ progressive platforms met with support, but several pushed the candidate to take stance on protecting sex work.
One woman asked for his stance on sex work, noting the candidate has firm stances on other personal liberties and freedoms. She said she hoped he would not equate sex work with human trafficking.
As he has when previously asked about the topic, Sanders said he would have to study the issue.
Another man then pressed him on sex work, asking him not to defer on the issue.
Sanders clarified he did not equate sex work and human trafficking, but he said he does not yet have answers for every question.
