WHAT!!?? That's one of the reasons the 'fans' go to these events, Amy. It's part of the fun and right of passage for these 'men' to abuse young girls. Getting their stadiums for free isn't enough for them.

It's very hard to chase down a myth. Did anyone at the Strib read yesterday's Strib story making the point that there is no "major league" of sex work at the Super Bowl. They play football, drink too much, and do not ... .

Amy I voted for you because you don't come up with stupid ideas. Leave the NFL alone and do your job.

Way to go Amy! Let's pass a law prohibiting trafficking of minors. You rock!!

Seriously, how could even the most Marxist of my fellow comrades here in Minnesots vote for this person? What on earth does the NFL have to do with sex trafficing ? she apparently has nothing to do all day but dream ud strange causes and tie them to unrelated events and organization. it's no wonder her tenure as a county attorney was such a joke!

Immsure Mark Dayton, RT Rybak,and TeddynMondale would disagree.

Amy K is shameless. Always trying to cash in on anything. This is ridiculous.

I realize that Klobuchar is always going to play it safe, but this is just plain grandstanding. Our senior senator is in a position to fight the difficult fights in Washington, and this is what she gives us? What's next? Banning the Super Bowl in markets that don't support mom and apple pie? This is a woman who can never be defeated and yet she still refuses to take a stand. At least Franken is willing to take on difficult challenges. I'm one liberal who will never donate a penny to a Klobuchar campaign.

Sex trafficking is not a joke, you guys. It is just sick what is happening to these girls. Drugged up and made to do what they do. Sick, sick, sick. Go to therapy.
