Also with us from Colorado Springs Libby -- the Colorado State representative who introduced Jessica's law to -- -- let's cut to the chase here.
Why -- Colorado.
In the legislator not the folks but the legislature.
Why don't they want to protect the children.
Well you know -- That some of these child rapists can receive gifts for years.
So I have to believed.

Then our poor our defense foolish children from the predators that are after them.
OK but there's got to be a reason for this not -- -- indeed now.
I understand he is that what the first openly gay house speaker in Colorado.
He was affirming gay marriage person he objected when gay marriage was first tabled.
Because they sedated as saying committee to kill it that he sent Jessica's law -- all that true so far this guy.

And and you talk to them in and anybody's gonna respond to you.
But they ignore what you say is it -- you surprised by.
I was very surprised that the Colorado will -- to the veterans affairs committee and I was just astonished that they immediately voted -- so quickly.
You know it's very heartfelt for me because this is an opportunity for them to put the worst of the worst of way.
If you you know they say the word about you know consensual section Romeo and Juliet -- don't charged with just usual charged with something.
Jesse's law will get a prosecutor as a distraction.
They're all in all of the Jessica's law legislation across the country there's prosecutorial.
Discretion to bring whatever charges they might when that's just an excuse now.

And I mentioned I spoke out was I -- speaker Karen -- helped put -- into the state military veterans affairs where we on the.
