Wasserman Schultz’ child-porn bill passes Congress
"A bill designed to protect children from sexual predators [sic] has cleared Congress and is headed to the White House to be signed into law.
“With President Obama’s signature, this law will help to rescue the thousands of children suffering from unthinkable abuse,” [sic] said Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat from Weston, who sponsored the bill along with House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican.
The bill’s passage is one sign that Congress can still get something done, especially when leaders from each party push a non-controversial measure. [such is dangerous populism]
The bill increases the maximum penalty from 10 years in prison to 20 years for child pornography offenses that involve pre-pubescent children, or those under age 12."
