Murman suggests RNC will draw prostitutes

Sandra Murman probably wants a do-over on this one. 

The Republican Hillsborough County commissioner asked board support for a local effort to crack down on human trafficking. She set up her sales pitch by noting that the Republican National Convention in coming to town.

"Conventions like this, they bring in large numbers of prositutes," Murman said.

Fellow commissioner Les Miller, a Democrat, gleefully ribbed her, asking if she was admitting that the RNC draws prostitutes.

"Not RNC," Murman said. "Conventions (generally) draw large numbers of prostitutes."
