This is quite a story. In particular I agree with her justification for her choice.
She believes in rehabilitation via our justice system. In other words, people learn from their mistakes. Most humans do!

So her position runs counter to the justification for SORs, which makes the case that most sexual oriented offenders do not, thus must be diligently supervised. That distorted reasoning’s is based in visceral fear, wives tales and spurred on by sensationalized cases.

Furthermore, this lady has a measure of fortitude in defending her selection in a public way. Only time will tell is she gets office, because I am cautiously, optimistic about her chances of winning. Even if she loses, she is most certainly a winner!
