He’s no Fred Garvin, though

First, there was Fred Garvin, male prostitute. Now, there’s an 83-year-old city council candidate from Centerville, Iowa, who has been charged with prostitution.
Ben Clifford Dawson, 83, of Centerville, was charged with prostitution and assault with the intent to commit sexual abuse after he allegedly offered to let a 33-year-old woman repay part of a $7,000 loan by allowing him to perform sex acts on her. That’s not soliciting – it’s prostitution, according to local authorities.

Dawson also grabbed the victim and began kissing their neck without consent, according to police. Dawson was released from the Appanoose County Jail after posting $2,000 bond.
Police said it was not the first such complaint about Dawson.
“The same sexual actions or requests have been recorded in the past in reports from at least three separate former female tenants of the defendant,” police reported.
