A Republican senator from Vermont was arrested on Thursday after he allegedly solicited sex from two women in exchange for overdue rent. Norman McAllister, who is in his second two-year Senate term representing Franklin County, pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual assault, human trafficking and prohibited acts as he appeared in Vermont Superior Court in St. Albans on Friday morning. He has been ordered to be held on $20,000 bail. The 63-year-old dairy farmer and widower, who’s one of the Legislature’s most outspoken conservatives, was taken into custody on Thursday evening.
