GA Continues to Show its Obsession With Sex Offenders

GA Continues to Show its Obsession With Stripping Away All Constitutional Rights from Every Sex Offender.

Georgia General Assembly : Senate Bill SB 14 – Local Boards of Education; no person on the national/state sex offender registry shall be eligible for election/service on board…

Summary
A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Code Section 20-2-51 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to election of county board of education members, persons ineligible to be members or superintendent, ineligibility for local boards of education, and ineligibility for other offices, so as to provide that no person who is on the national or state sex offender registry shall be eligible for election to or service on a local board of education; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

Section1 “(e) No person who is on the National Sex Offender Registry or the state sexual offender registry shall be eligible for election to or service on a local board of education.”

Granted: it is very unlikely that a sex offender would be elected to such a position, but isn’t it the right of the electorate to decide? And doesn’t a sex offender have the right to run for election?
