Leader of Maryland Democrat LGBTQ+ Council Caught in Child Sex Predator Sting

The leader of Maryland’s Democrat LGBTQ+ Diversity Council was allegedly caught sexting and attempting to hook-up with an underage boy in a child sex predator sting.

The accused, Democrat Michael Knaapen, appears to have visited the Biden White House three times in May and June of 2023, according to the White House Visitor’s Log.

For six months in 2024, Knaapen thought he was exchanging pornographic text messages—including rape fantasies and “d-ck pics”—with a 14-year-old boy, but in reality he was was providing incriminating evidence to an adult investigator from Predator Poachers, a Houston-based vigilante organization that has claimed responsibility for the arrests and convictions of dozens of pedophiles.

Knaapen appeared to counsel the boy to lie about his age to protect older potential sex predators.

The Maryland Democrat said that all “my boys call me daddy.”

“I like to call them son or boy or faggot when I get excited,” he added, before asking the assumed 14-year old how he masturbates.

Knaapen’s texts appeared to show that he intended to meet up with the boy at some point.


In one text message, Knaapen allegedly talked about pulling down the teen’s pants so he could spank his “bare cheeks.”

Alex Rosen, the founder of  Predator Poachers, confronted Knaapen in Montgomery County, Maryland, about the text messages. Knaapen did not deny that he had sexted with a 14-year-old. In fact, he told the investigators, “I liked the fantasy, and he seemed to enjoy it.”

“I didn’t know this person, and I never intended to …” Knaapen added weakly, his voice trailing off.

Rosen read some of the texts, including one where the Democrat appeared to crudely proposition the teen.

“Stop by this morning so I can stretch your hole, faggot. Can’t wait to make you my little boy.”

Four days later, after receiving no response, Knaapen allegedly wrote “can’t wait to make you my little cum dump baby boy,” according to Rosen.

Rosen explained why no arrest has been made in the case:

⁃We tried to turn this in back in November, and they [police] didn’t want to do anything with it

⁃Though he admitted to sending d pics, in Maryland the law states you have to be a cop or a real kid for it to be a charge

⁃He admitted to previously possessing CP [child porn] but did not have any in his possession currently

⁃We are still going to turn all of this over to the cops, but calling them to the scene would have done nothing.

Since this story was broken, both the White House and  the Maryland Democrat LGBTQ+ Diversity Council have scrubbed Knaapen’s name from their records.
