    Enslaved orphans, I mean. Proofreading is good.

    For that meaning, I would use a hyphen: "enslaved-orphan prostitutes."

    "Selling" seems to argue against the drugs-for-prostitutes barter interpretation. However it's still not clear if the senator was buying, for his own use, drugs designed for enslaved orphan prostitutes, or whether he was simply a middleman buying drugs on behalf of the prostitutes.

    There's also the version where the senator was caught for the prostitutes (whether as a reward, as a punishment, or as a gladiatorial opponent, remains open to interpretation, obviously… though probably the last one).
