Republican Senate candidate accused of making false allegations of child trafficking

A Republican candidate for the US Senate in Maryland has been arrested for making false reports of child trafficking.

The county sheriff said in a statement that 54-year-old Ryan Dark White was jailed at the Harford County Detention Center following his arrest on Friday. White is seeking to challenge Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen in Tuesday’s GOP primary under the alias John McGreevey, who also faces a contested primary.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office said White, an employee at an adult bookstore in Edgewood, Maryland, falsely reported in April that a girl aged 10 to 12 was being trafficked by a man at the bookstore and Male customers were forced to perform sexual acts on them. The sheriff’s office identified both the man and the young girl, and said investigators found no evidence supporting White’s allegations.

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey R. “It is disgraceful that a candidate for public office fabricates such a story and uses it to advance his political agenda,” Gahler said.

Ryan Dark White, also known as John McGreevey.

Gahler also denounced an unnamed political candidate who was not charged in the investigation.

“It’s even more appalling that another person, running for a law enforcement position, would adopt such an apparently false narrative in an effort to gain political traction — nothing more,” Gahler said.

The Baltimore Sun reported that White was protesting in Baltimore County jointly with Republican sheriff’s candidate Andy Kuhl.

Kuhl’s campaign website warns of a multistate child trafficking campaign, saying: “John McGreeve and I go undercover to expose these sick and heinous crimes against children. We must bring these criminals to justice.” should.”

White has previously stated that he began working at the bookstore as part of an undercover operation to locate the drug ring, claiming that the drugs were stored at that location.

“They started abusing the children,” White said in a video on Kuhl’s campaign site on June 9, according to CBS. “There’s also a child trafficking ring going on.”

Gahler condemned the resources wasted by his office in investigating the false report.

“I am grateful that this young girl is safe, but extremely disappointed that someone would attempt to defame and denigrate the work of the dedicated men and women of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office and Child Advocacy Center,” Gahler said. “The intimidation and hostility caused time and energy wasted by our personnel, whose time would have been better spent protecting the citizens of Harford County rather than investigating lies.”

White is among 10 candidates running for the Republican Senate primary.
