Did he pay with a check?
Forgive me for snickering at the misfortune of another. Remember, I’m a Jets fan. This is as close as I’ll ever get to an exciting day in sports.
Kraft is worth something on the order of $6 billion, by the way. Even at the age of 77, how is this guy having trouble getting laid?

It’s amusing to think of a fabulously wealthy, successful mogul publicly embarrassed over something as grubby as this — until you read a little further about the case and realize why cops were so interested in this particular “massage parlor.”
Patriots owner Robert Kraft being charged with soliciting prostitution related to what FL police say is a massage parlor where women – who were told they were coming to US for legit jobs – were in fact held as virtual prisoners/sex workers.

As for the human trafficking case in Martin County, Snyder described the operation as an 8-month, multi-agency investigation. “The tentacles of this go from here to New York to China, in Florida from here to Orange County,” Snyder said.
Snyder stressed the case is bigger than what was disclosed Tuesday.
“I think it’s very safe to say without any hyperbole that this is the tip of the iceberg,” Snyder said.
Twenty-five men in all are being charged. There’s “video evidence” against all of them obtained by police as part of the sting, according to the chief of Jupiter PD, and not just video of them entering and exiting the building. Allegedly Kraft is on tape engaged in “a sex act.” “The Patriots aren’t the only ones who can videotape their targets without their knowledge,” says Josh Jordan.
The important question now: Can this be used somehow to get Tom Brady banned from the NFL? Stand by for updates.
Update: Kraft did nothing illegal, a spokesperson says: “In a statement, a spokesperson for Kraft said they ‘categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.'” Are they suggesting he was given a freebie? Or that the report of a sex act caught on tape is wrong?
Update: Did anyone happen to see this on ESPN?
Adam Schefter said on ESPN that Kraft isn’t the most famous person — there’s someone else whose name hasn’t surfaced yet who’s better known than Kraft.
“I’m also told that Robert Kraft is not the biggest name involved down there in South Florida,” Schefter said.
