New York Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner remains in hot water for sending lewd pictures to a number of women, and at least one college student, over Twitter and Facebook.
Those familiar with his online antics will find it surprising to hear that his Congressional web page continues to promote his work against online sex predators.
“Sadly, the Internet is the predator’s venue of choice today,” Weiner wrote on his issues page. “We need to update our strategies and our laws to stop these offenders who are a mere click away from our children.”
Weiner boasts on his page about passing “KIDS” (Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators) Act of 2007, legislation to require sex offenders to register their email addresses with the National Sex Offender Registry.
“The ‘Kids Act’ implemented one of my six recommendations to keep a closer eye on sex offenders both near school grounds and online,” he wrote to demonstrate his toughness on crime and Internet sex predators. “I also proposed stricter GPS tracking of sex offenders, tougher enforcement of registration laws and more public disclosure of sex offender data.”
Weiner’s office has not yet responded to requests for comment.
