Is CA lawmaker Mark Leno protecting child molesters?

In comments made recently, California Assemblyman Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), expressed his opposition to the California voter ballot initiative to strengthen child sex offender laws by passing "Jessica's Law". You can hear his reasoning in his own words here. Also, check out this site for more comments and audio links to Mr. Leno's absurd comments and positions.

Am I alone in thinking this guy just doesn't get it? Not only this guy, but every politician who opposes stronger laws to punish child sex offenders. All the evidence surrounding these types of sick criminals shows they cannot be successfully rehabilitated. How many times do we have to read about another innocent child who has been abducted and assaulted--or killed--by a person who has prior convictions of child molestation? It is a simple thing to pass--if you are convicted of molesting a child, you go to prison. If you do it again, you go to prison for the rest of your life. And if you do get out, you don't get to live where you want--you get to live where we tell you it's okay for you to live.

There is no criminal more disgusting or reprehensible than a person who sexually assaults or kills a child--period. The only thing that comes close is a politician, on either side of the political spectrum, who tries to defend or protect such a person. Mr. Leno, your job is to protect the innocent people, especially children, not the criminals who prey on them. Get with it!
