Former Democrat candidate for Massachusetts caught on camera in an undercover operation while trying to solicit sex from a 14-year-old boy.
A group of pedophile hunters busted politician Matt Trowbridge, who ran as a Democratic state representative, as he tried to meet a minor for sex.
According to reports, Trowbridge had been grooming the underage boy via text messages after meeting the 'child' on the Grindr app.
However, the User Wasn't Actually a Boy
Trowbridge was having sexually explicit conversations with an activist from Predator Poachers of Massachusetts, posing as a 14-year-old boy.
Predator Poachers of Massachusetts carry out undercover operations and then expose pedophiles on YouTube.
Since Trowbridge had no clue about this, he sent sexually explicit messages to the person he believed to be a 14-year-old boy.
The activist told Trowbridge that he was '14 turning 15.' And in response, Trowbridge replied, 'nice.'
Afterward, the pedophile asked the 'child' if they could meet.
While planning the meet-up, the predator asked the 'boy' when his mother would be leaving home. He did this to confirm that he was really speaking to a young boy.
He also didn't even try to cover-up what he planned to do to the boy. Completely straight forward, he told the imaginary kid he wanted that 'cute boy mouth' all over his b**ls.
So, on the day of the meet-up, Trowbridge left his house to meet the 'boy.'
But Pedophile Hunters Busted Him
They also filmed him as he tried to meet with the child and then posted the video online.
The group also shared screenshots of the sickening messages Trowbridge sent to the 'child.'
After the expose, Trowbridge deleted his social media profile.
Trowbridge is a democratic politician from North Attleborough. He once ran for state rep against Republican incumbent Betty Poirier.
However, he dropped out of the candidacy due to 'personal matters.'
Shockingly enough, a new report has revealed that Trowbridge is also a Santa Claus for hire. So, he has been using Santa to get close to kids for years.
Also, having taught Sunday School classes for nine years, he's the Superintendent of his church's Sunday School program.
In another twist, the Boston Globe featured him in 2006 wearing a Batman suit while raising money for St. Jude's hospital for children.
It turns out, Trowbridge is a serial predator, one who's adaptable enough to reintegrate into mainstream society. And considering his involvement with kids, there's a possibility he has victims out there.
