U.S. Senator James Lankford is in the center of a controversy after the Associated Press released an article.

The subject, Lankford's views on whether a 13-year-old girl could consent to sex.

His answer during the deposition in 2010 was yes.

Lankford was the youth programming director at the Falls Creek Baptist camp at that time.

A family of a 13-year-old had sued a 15-year-old boy who was accused of having sex with her at the camp.

Lankford is up for reelection this year.

His campaign spokesperson declined to comment.
