DENVER, COLORADO: Nathan Daniel Larson, the Congressional candidate who had made news earlier for bragging about pedophilia, white supremacy, and raping his late-ex wife, was arrested by California police. Lason was brought in custody for allegedly grooming a 12-year-old girl and coercing her to run away from home and fly across the country to meet him.

The 40-year-old Virginia native is currently being held in Denver County Jail, facing a misdemeanor charge of harboring a minor. Larson also faces charges in Fresno, California, where the girl lives, for kidnapping, child abduction, soliciting child pornography from a minor, and meeting a child for the intention of sex. This girl isn't the only minor Larson has victimized in the past, believe cops, who are now urging anyone to come forward should they have any information.

According to a press release from the Fresno County Sheriff's Office, the said victim was first reported missing on December 12. During interviews with friends and family, an acquaintance told investigators that the victim had met a man on social media in October. After being coerced to run away with him, she caught a flight to Virginia. Investigators soon found out that a man, later identified as Larson, and the girl had boarded a flight to Washington DC. It was during a scheduled layover in Denver that the local police arrested him.

The girl whom law enforcement rescued and arranged to be reunited with her family was uninjured, said police. "There was some activity including at the airport that was inappropriate between her and the suspect," law enforcement said. "That's going to help bolster the current charges that we have through the DA's office." The release also reveals that officials discovered more information after taking Larson into custody. He had allegedly flown to Fresno and gone to the girl's house, coercing her to sneak out at night, before calling rideshare to pick her up and together traveling to the Fresno airport. The pedophile had allegedly made the victim wear a wig and asked her to act disabled so she wouldn't have to interact with anyone in public.

This isn't the first time Larson has been in the limelight for his infamous motives. In 2018, while running for Congress as an independent from Virginia, Larson had bragged to Huffpost about being a pedophile and boasted about raping his late-ex wife. Also the creator of the now-defunct websites suiped.org and incelocalypse.today, which had chat rooms for pedophiles and misogynists, Larson had told the outlet "A lot of people are tired of political correctness and are being constrained by it. People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds."

When Larson was asked whether he just writes about pedophilia or is also a pedophile, he replied with: "It’s a mix of both. When people go over the top, there’s a grain of truth to what they say." His websites also had stories about a father-daughter incestuous encounter and those about raping his ex-wife. When asked if these are true incidents, he replied with a yes, adding that many women have rape fantasies. His 2018 campaign described him as a "quasi-neo-reactionary libertarian" candidate, in favor of gun ownership rights, establishing free trade, and protecting "benevolent white supremacy."

Also reportedly in favor of legalizing incestuous marriage and child pornography, his campaign manifesto saw him call Adolf Hitler a "white supremacist hero," and also urged Congress to repeal the Violence Against Women Act, adding, “we need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands.” Larson has also reportedly expressed sympathy for men who identify themselves as involuntary celibates, stating that it is not fair that they are "forced to pay taxes for schools, welfare, and other support for other men’s children.”

Earlier in 2008, Larson had also pleaded guilty of sending a letter to Secret Service threatening to kill the president, when George W Bush was in power and Barack Obama was the president-elect. The man then went on to serve 16 months in federal prison, but after his release, he ran for local office in his native state thrice, every time either being severely defeated or withdrawing voluntarily.

If convicted of the felony charges in Fresno, Larson faces life in prison. As of now, Larson reportedly runs a website on which child rape is encouraged and content related to the same is shared, reveals Fresno County Sheriff's Office. The authorities also added that during his grooming period o two months with the 12-year-old victim, "Larson was able to convince the Fresno girl, through manipulation and grooming, to send him pornographic images of herself. Due to the sophisticated nature of how Larson groomed this Fresno girl, detectives believe he has victimized other children in the past, but those cases have never been reported to law enforcement," the sheriff's office said.
