Why do Democrats want to coddle child rapists? The lowest form of life on the planet and Democrats want to protect them?
Is this a Harry Reid thing? Where is the rest of the media on this?
Several Obama surrogates in Virginia opposed a popular law that ensures lengthy prison sentences for child rapists.
In March, the Virginia state legislature overwhelmingly passed a law that imposed automatic life sentences for any adult convicted of raping a child under the age of 13. The issue received scant attention and even less debate, according to Delegate Rob Bell (R.,Charlottesville), the bill’s sponsor.
“More than half of all rapes in Virginia are to children under 13,” he said. “In the past two years we had 228 offenders, only 10 got life sentences. They were appallingly short.”
Twenty-one state senators and delegates, all Democrats, voted nay on the bill, including a handful of prominent Obama supporters.
Opponents of the law visited the White House on at least 17 occasions, according to White House logs. Many are organizing for Obama in the highly charged race to capture Virginia’s 13 electoral votes. Sen. Louise Lucas, the Obama surrogate who claimed Romney’s surge in Virginia lay in “racism,” Delegate Mamye BaCote, a leading member of VA Women for Obama, and five members of the Obama campaign’s Truth Team voted against the strict punishments.
Heck, some of these people may even be child rapists themselves. We don’t know, so therefore we must investigate.
We’ve even got Obama campaign members on board with this:
Surovell is a trial lawyer and a member of Obama’s Truth Team, which conducts opposition research against Romney supporters. He said the mandatory life sentences would allow prosecutors to strong-arm the accused child rapist’s defense, hampering his ability to secure a more lenient deal. It also prevents the jury from considering unique aspects of individual rape cases, such as the offender’s family background or community standards.
Unique aspects of child rape? Please, tell us more.
Update: Now a senator who enjoys joking about rape is campaigning for Obama and Biden.
