Lesson 1 for Presidential Candidates: No daycare for sex offenders
The Minneapolis City Pages‘ reported yesterday that presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty pardoned sex offender Jeremy Giefer in October 2008 so his wife could open a day care center in their home.
This is the same home where Giefer was having sex with his daughter for six years prior to his pardon. He would often make his daughter have sex with him or perform oral sex on him as a favor before he would give her permission to do things. He put her on birth control when she was 15 years old so that she wouldn’t get pregnant when he raped her without a condom. The abuse started when she was 9 years old.
This is the same wife who Giefer was convicted of raping in 1994 when she was 14 years old. (They later married).
This is the same daughter Giefer conceived through the statutory rape of a 14 year old girl.
Pawlenty’s so-called “extraordinary pardon” was extraordinary in many ways.
Message to campaign staff: review Willie Horton ad, take two aspirins and call me in the morning.
At least Horton got a life sentence. Giefer only served 45 days.
