The biggest news from the Super Bowl game may not be what happens on the field, but who's lurking outside it. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington. Most fans are so preoccupied with the Broncos and Seahawks that they have no idea New York is hosting another event: the Super Bowl of Sex Trafficking. Every year, the FBI gets ready for the dark side of America's biggest game -- rings of child prostitution. Some cities have seen as many as 10,000 girls brought in before the game hoping to do business with men who "have money to burn." The victims are lured away by men who say they want to buy them clothes or dinner. And they never come back. Fortunately, New York is fighting the problem head-on, training hundreds of volunteers and hotels to recognize the tell-tale signs. While it's sad the problem coincides with the Super Bowl, there is one positive: more people will know about it. Including Congress, who should do more to give American trafficking the red light.
