Taxpayer-Funded Pedophilia

 

Evidently, the taxpayers of New York have been footing the bill to provide sex offenders with Viagra.

Unbelievable...

I've been nailed (probably a poor choice of words, given the topic). Bella is right - I went for a sensationalistic headline that misled. Perhaps a question mark at the end might have sufficed, preserving the "OH SHIT!" nature of the story while allowing me wiggle room.

I promise to do better next time :)

LOL! Sadly one thing I've learned in working in Human Services is that there are sex offenders, and there are SEX OFFENDERS. None of them defensible, really, but some viewed more sympathetically than others. The stories abound...

But, back to the problem at hand...um...so to speak. You and I weren't the only ones irked by the practice. Mr. Pataki didn't like it either.
