Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell defended his state's record of protecting children from sexual abuse. "We put up a Web site, and we've gotten hundreds of thousands of hits on it since we put it up. The parole board has adopted the rules and regulations that will now let us do GPS monitoring of all Megan Law registrants and all violent sexual offenders. And Pennsylvania has two mandatory minimum sentences, one for anybody who rapes or commits involuntary deviant sexual intercourse on someone 16 years or below and one for deviant assault." The Factor said more was necessary to insure judges and prosecutors don't let sex offenders off easy. "You have a Web site identifying sexual offenders, correct? Put up a Web site identifying judges who do that. I guarantee you, Governor, they'll stop doing it."
