Watch as Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson (sporting a beard, no less) speaks out against legislation aimed at making it easier for victims of childhood sexual abuse to sue their abusers. Johnson gave his testimony in opposition to the Child Victims Act before a state Senate committee last year.
“I believe it is a valid question to ask whether the employer of a perpetrator should also be severely damaged, or possibly destroyed, in our legitimate desire for justice,”
While Ron Johnson may not support the notion that the church should be held responsible financially for protecting known pedophile priests, I’d beg to differ. The fact that Ron Johnson wants to protect pedophile priests and the church that protected them from being held fully accountable for their actions says a lot about the man.
