Molestation fearmongering in four easy steps
1. Prey on Fears of Child Molestation to Commit Vote Fraud
Jacoby's arrest by state investigators and the Ontario Police Department late Saturday came after dozens of voters said they were duped into registering as Republicans by people employed by YPM. The voters said YPM workers tricked them by saying they were signing a petition to toughen penalties against child molesters.
As you can see, the McCain ad says that Obama was the one who pushed the "comprehensive sex education" measure. The Obama campaign has pointed out that the bill would simply add instruction on disease prevention to already existing Illinois sex-ed standards. But the McCain campaign cheerfully turned this into Obama's support for "learning about sex before learning to read."
More than convicted 500,000 sex offenders now live in the United States. Of those, about 100,000 to 150,000 are missing - roaming the streets with no one watching over them. According to the U.S. Justice Department, released sex offenders are 4 times more likely to be rearrested. And, on average, child molesters serve only 43 percent of their sentence. These statistics are frightening. We need to stop playing Russian roulette with children's lives. We need to stop these pedophiles now... As case after case of missing or abducted children is broadcast, many parents wonder if their child is safe. Every day that goes by without this bill is another day we risk another victim. Now, more than ever, we need to stand together and unite cities, communities and states in the effort to stop the assault on America's children.
