Ron Johnson Shows His Values - Profits Over Victims

I have no doubt Republican senate candidate Ron Johnson has a genuine disgust for pedophiles and holds faith-based organizations in high regard for the work they do. That is not the issue here.

What is the issue is Johnson's Randian inspired testimony in opposition to state legislation to remove the statute of limitations that prevents victims of child abuse to sue their abusers. In other words, if it is later discovered that a non-profit institution or faith-based organization knowingly put a child in the care of a person with a history of predation, and that child becomes another victim, Johnson says that organization should not be held liable. Even more disgusting is that Johnson's defense logic has roots in Ayn Rand's morally bankrupt ideology where anyone, even a defenseless child victim of a sexual predator, would be labeled as parasitic non-producer simply by seeking financial damages from a so-called producer.

I can't believe this guy is still considered a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
