I've spoken a lot about my efforts as Attorney General to combat underage sex trafficking, and I'm proud to have led that fight in Washington State. (A fight that now seems to be producing some results, though we're still not where we need to be on this heart-rending issue.)
But while I have this forum, I'd like to take an opportunity to commend Nicholas D. Kristof of the New York Times for his unrelenting work on this problem. This is the kind of journalism we need. Thank you, Mr. Kristof.
