The Sex-Offender Lobby

Catherine Siepp wrote in OpinionJournal Did you know that in California, child molesters and rapists are a protected class?

I would believe just about anything about California, but this I find surprising anywhere, other than perhaps San Francisco.
It's true. Not only are California landlords banned from using the state's Megan's Law database to decline renting their properties to sex offenders, they're not even allowed to warn other tenants that these paroled criminals are now their neighbors. If they do the first, they can be fined $25,000 for housing discrimination. But if they don't do the second, they can be sued for failing to protect tenants against a known danger.

California, the cereal bowl of the country, filled with fruits, nuts, and flakes.
