The grinning gentleman above is 83-year-old Ben Clifford Dawson of Centerville, Iowa. In addition to his city council candidacy, it appears as if Mr. Dawson also moonlights as a prostitute. After a 10-day investigation, Dawson was apprehended for allegedly offering “to perform sex acts on a woman in exchange for repayment of a loan.” He didn’t wait for confirmation either, as he started “kissing her on the neck without consent.” Look at him, how could she resist?
This ancient American gigolo is looking at charges of prostitution and intent to commit sexual abuse. We don’t know how effective that Pepe Le Pew approach is, but we don’t think he has much of a future in it.
