Smallville actress Allison Mack may face sex trafficking charges for allegedly being a sex cult leader's right-hand woman.

On Sunday, Keith Raniere -- leader of alleged sex cult NXIVM -- was arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and was extradited to Fort Worth, Texas the next day where he was slapped with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy charges. Related: Two More Actresses Revealed As Part Of Alleged Sex Cult As we reported in November 2017, Mack allegedly helps Raniere recruit for DOS, the supposed secret inner circle of NXIVM, which has been accused of branding, starving, and beating members, especially when they don't recruit "slaves" for their organization. In a video of Raniere's arrest first obtained by Art Voice, Mack appears to be in a state of disbelief when authorities arrive at the group's luxury villa. The actress, along with other women, can be heard saying they are going to get in a vehicle and follow the cops. According to a DailyMail.com source, the ladies did exactly that, and engaged in a high-speed car chase with police. Alleged members Nicki Clyne, Lauren Salzman, and Loreta Garza are believed to be in the video. Earlier this week, Art Voice sources say Mack is expected to be arrested soon on sex trafficking charges. [Image via Allison Mack/Instagram.].....»»

Allison Mack was laying out the blueprint on how to properly run a sex cult until she got sloppy and was eventually caught. An observant R. Kelly should do everything he can to learn from her mistakes because a sex trafficking charge is pretty serious. The judge will throw the book at anyone caught with their pants down peeing on underage runaways with nowhere else to go. And vigilante inmates often break broomsticks off in the buttholes of others inside for sex related offenses. But maybe Allison is into that, she does have those “I heart anal” eyes. Allison allegedly lured in and exploited women who were down on their luck and in need some guidance. But some of the blame has to be on the victims here. Allison is 35-years-old. Any woman over 30 living in America without children, a former corporate career, or an ex-husband should raise a red flag. More often than not if she’s single and creeping towards 40 she’s a sociopath into cults and collecting cats. Some baggage is obligatory by your mid-thirties if you want to come off as “normal.” Actress Allison Mack, best known for her role as Clark Kent’s clever confidant Chloe on CW’s “Smallville,” was indicted on Friday on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, according to a statement released by the Justice Department. Mack’s arrest is related to her alleged involvement with an organization called Nxivm (pronounced NEX-ium), a group that claimed to be a self-help program but was, in reality, a pyramid scheme in which some recruits were exploited “both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit,” according to U.S attorney Richard P. Donoghue. Nxivm’s founder, Keith Raniere, also known within the group as Vanguard, was also indicted on Friday. This entire situation is white collar pimping gone wrong. Allison was Keith Raniere’s “bottom bitch,” which job duties normally include fetching more women. Her job was to “break” these down on their luck, emotionally damaged women. But instead of turning these women into street walkers for a profit, he formed a cult and kept them to himself. Most likely to live out some 50 Shades of Grey fantasy because most women aren’t willing to sign a contract agreeing to candle wax being poured across their clitoris on the first date. Women only agree to those sex acts if you’re a handsome misunderstood billionaire with his own helicopter. Maybe Mack can metoo her way out of harsh sentencing.

On Thursday's episode of Megyn Kelly Today, thespian Samia Shoaib says Mack may have tried to recruit her after the two met at an audition five years ago, and began exchanging emails. Looking back, the Sex and the City alum (she made a brief appearance as an animal nurse -- "roosters, they are roosters") believes Mack's intentions were not pure. She said: "To be honest, I have no doubt—looking back at the emails, it's very clear that she was really pumping up her feminist interests to lure me in and, you know, I'm very supportive of young feminists. I was very heartened that this woman was looking to do something positive, so it was exactly the right button to push with me and I'm sort of angry that she used feminism for such nefarious ends." In response, Mack's representative released the following statement: "I have no comment regarding these matters. Additionally there is no statement being issued at this time."

New unearthed tweets reveal that Smallville actress Allison Mack reached out to Emma Watson and Kelly Clarkson to invite them to her controversial self-help group/alleged sex cult Nxivm. As we reported, the leader of the group, Keith Raniere, was recently slapped with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy charges after being arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and extradited to Fort Worth, Texas. Mack allegedly helps Raniere recruit for DOS, the supposed secret inner circle of NXIVM, which has been accused of branding, starving, and beating members, especially when they don't recruit "slaves" for their organization. As such, the 35-year-old actress was arrested on Friday and charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor in conspiracy in connection with Nxivm. Related: Did Twitter Identify Stormy Daniels' Threatening Thug? Back in 2016, Mack tried to contact the Harry Potter alum about an "amazing women's movement" that she thought "she'd dig." She wrote: ".@EmWatson I'm a fellow actress like yourself & involved in an amazing women's movement I think you'd dig. I'd love to chat if you're open." After getting no response, she messaged again a month later: ".@EmWatson I participate in a unique human development & women's movement I'd love to tell you about.

Would love to chat with a fellow change-maker! #InternationalWomensDay — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) March 7, 2016 Three years before that, Mack tried getting in touch with the American Idol alum, trying to reel her in because of her connection to Smallville: @kelly_clarkson I heard through the grapevine that you're a fan of Smallville. I'm a fan of yours as well! I'd love to chat sometime. — Allison Mack (@allisonmack) July 20, 2013 Wow. Fortunately neither celeb responded... publicly, anyway. According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York, Mack was allegedly "one of the women in the first level of the pyramid immediately below Raniere." She faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges. The statement says Mack had "slaves" underneath her and "directly or implicitly required" two women "to engage in sexual activity with Raniere": "In exchange, for this, Mack received financial and other benefits from Raniere." Last reporting said Mack is engaged in plea deal negotiations, and she is due in court on May 3. We'll keep you posted. [Image via Nicky Nelson/Sheri Determan/WENN.].....»»

On Monday, it was revealed that a former Oklahoma state senator, who also served as a county campaign coordinator for Dirty Donald's 2016 presidential campaign, has agreed to plead guilty to a child sex trafficking charge. Man, oh man. Ralph Shortey resigned from his post in March after he was charged with soliciting sex from a 17-year-old boy. It's said the disgraced politician is planning to enter his plea on November 30 -- which is two weeks before his scheduled trial date.
