Campaign against Bob for protecting rapists

There is a big money campaign to defeat Democrat Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski. See the web site on Wieckowski Allowed Rapists and Their Attorneys to Victimize Women, and video of him defending his sole vote against a bill. The bill passed, and makes it easier for a wife to avoid paying alimony and other family court fees by alleging domestic violence.

The justification for the bill was this 2011 case:
First, Crystal Harris was sexually assaulted by her husband — and now she’s being attacked once again by a California court.

Because of a bizarre legal loophole, Harris, 39, was ordered to pay $1,000 a month in spousal support to her now-ex, Shawn Harris.

“As soon as he gets out of prison for raping me, I have to start writing him checks! What a thing to choke on!” Harris told The Post in her first extended interview.

Shawn Harris, 41, was convicted on Jan. 24 of forced oral copulation, attacking his wife in 2008 while their children listened to her cries from an upstairs bedroom.

Harris was also ordered by San Diego Superior Court Judge Gregory Pollack to cough up $47,000 to repay the money Shawn Harris spent on divorce lawyers to win the alimony.
The wife was married for 12 years, living with her husband, and suddenly claims a sexual assault? This sounds fishy to me. Calling this rape does a disservice to genuine rape victims.

Wieckowski was right to oppose the bill, because it gives a huge incentive for false claims.

Wieckowski is a leftist Democrat and also sponsored a California bill to let illegal immigrants serve on juries.

I think that you probably know the details of this "fishy" rape. The 12 on the jury heard an actual recording of the rape, in which the victim said no more than 50 times. She is a genuine rape victim unless you don't believe in marital rape.

Of course, it's an absolute lie that he sponsored a bill to allow illegal immigrants to serve on juries. Question what you read on this blog.

I linked to an article on AB1401. If that is wrong, please post a correction.

It's right, you're wrong. It's for legal immigrants, not illegal immigrants.
