Liberals and children

Proposition 83, Jessica's Law, will protect our children from child molesters by requiring mandatory minimum prison sentences and predator-free zones. This proposition is on the ballot because liberal Democrats in the California Legislature blocked its approval. While liberal Democrats were blocking Jessica's Law here, other states have had Jessica's Law blocked by the same liberal agenda.

This is an interesting scenario considering the self-righteous attitude liberals took concerning former Republican Rep. Mark Foley's sex e-mails. However, Foley resigned his House seat and was condemned by his Republican peers for his disgusting actions.

The Democrats are guilty of a double standard about protecting the children. Their opposition to Jessica's Law and their allies in the liberal press sitting on the Foley story for months cast doubt on their concern for the children.
