We all know Obama’s stance on abortion, but have you ever seen his voting record on rape, pedophilia and gang murder? Do these truly look like the actions of a protector of women and children?
Rape/Child Molestation of child family member; Criminal Sexual Abuse; Aggravated Sexual Abuse
Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois State Senate to vote against a bill that prohibited convicted criminal sex abusers from getting early release. The amendment to the “County Jail Good Behavior Allowance Act” provided that a person in a county jail may not receive a good behavior allowance if he is convicted of criminal sexual assault against a minor who is also a family member or if the criminal were to be convicted of criminal sexual abuse or aggravated sexual abuse.
Vote: 54-1 (Obama was the sole voter against the bill)
Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act (Revised)
Obama refused to support the effort to toughen laws on pedophiles and rapists by revamping the “Sexually Violent Persons Commitment Act.” The legislation required disclosure of mental health records of any person being prosecuted as a sexually violent person.
Vote: 47-1 (Obama was the sole voter against the bill)
Obama refused to support the legislation that would protect the privacy of sex-abuse victims by allowing the victims to request the trial records be sealed.
In 2003, Obama refused to vote when it crossed over to the Illinois Senate. That legislation made sex offenders ineligible to sit on school boards.
The legislation came about in response to a brutal gang murder in Chicago and was designed to put gang members who kill in furtherance of gang activity on death row. Obama even spoke out against the bill on the Senate floor.
The Vote: Passed, 44-9 (Obama voted against the bill)
Obama voted against creating the offense of “unlawful contact with street gang members.” The legislation provided that it would be a Class A misdeamenor for a person who is sentenced to probation to knowingly have contact with a street gang member if a condition of probation was for the person to refrain from contact.
Vote: 54-3; Obama voted against the bill
