St. Petersburg, FL - It may be Valentine's Day but state Sen. Darren Soto of Orlando has no love for Sugar Daddy websites like SeekingArrangement.com.

Soto says the sites are a forum for prostitution and he wants to see if they can be shut down.

"I absolutely believe that they are facilitating prostitution and so that's why I'm asking for involvement (by) the state Attorney General's office as well as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
