Sen. Ray Holmberg (indicted) is not a drag queen.

Former North Dakota Sen. Ray Holmberg denies traveling to have sex with minors after federal indictment

FARGO — A former North Dakota legislator from Grand Forks has been indicted on federal charges, including ones alleging he traveled internationally to have sex with minors.

A grand jury in North Dakota U.S. District Court indicted 79-year-old Ray Everett Holmberg on Thursday, Oct. 26. The indictment that was unsealed Monday alleged he traveled from North Dakota to Prague between June 24, 2011, and Nov. 1, 2016, with intentions to "engage in illicit sexual activity" with minors. He also was accused of receiving or attempting to receive child porn between Nov. 24, 2012, and March 4, 2013.

If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.

The indictment available to the public gave few details on the charges, including how many children were involved, their ages or how Holmberg allegedly tried to obtain child porn.


Holmberg was a Republican member of the North Dakota State Senate for 45 years — and a retired school counselor.

How friggin stupid do you have to be for the government to find out you traveled to prague for sex with an underaged child between 7 and 12 years ago?

I'm sorry, Im not forgiving anything here. I'm just gobsmacked that someone would keep evidence like that around for so long. He is accused of "intentions", not actually engaging in, sexual activity with minors.

Wow. Just wow.
