The McCain’s On Michael Lacey And Jim Larkin Arrest
The sudden arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin on 6th April and the eventual closure of their backpage.com site took the internet by storm. James and Jim are well-known newspaper men in Phoenix that once owned the New Times and are currently the founders of the social media sites backpage.com.
The two are also the co-founders of Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund established after the two were compensated a sum of $3.75million in their case with Arpaio. The non-profit fund today donates money to worthy Latin America organizations within Arizona.
Critical pillars in the internet discussion on the issues facing James and Jim are John McCain and his wife, Cindy McCain. Although John McCain seems to be handling the matter lightly, his wife Cindy McCain seems excited about the whole arrest and closure.
According to her, the allegation might be right because she had for the longest time been warning about the site’s engagement in the selling of children for sex. In as much as you would like to consider her allegations you should also consider that while Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin owned New Times, they once featured the hypocrisy of McCain on his self-proclaimed maverick status and campaign finance.

Despite the speculations that the move of the couple may be nothing more than revenge, John McCain, and Cindy McCain have remained vigilant in the fight for the detention of Jim and James. In fact, Cindy went a step further and testified on the matter championing the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Acts (SESTA) and the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) of the U.S Senate. This has seen the president Donald Trump interfering with the issue as he is now obliged with signing the FOSTA because the Congress has already passed it as a bill.

In an interview with Ruela, Cindy McCain argues that Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill probably on Wednesday. The day corresponds with Lacey’s arraignment in court. The validity of this statement is yet to be known since Trump himself has not confirmed anything but should, either way, sign the bill on whichever day.
As the Congress alongside John and Cindy McCain awaits the signing of this bill by Donald Trump, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin continue to remain in detention. The lawyers of the accused are however confident that the two will win the case as the performed act is a baseless propaganda.
