GOP lawmaker to introduce death peanlty bill

Sigh. That didn't take long;

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Republican state lawmaker says he plans to introduce a bill to reinstate the death penalty in Iowa, and he's pointing to the deaths of two Iowa girls as his motivation.

State Sen. Kent Sorenson, R-Milo, tells The Des Moines Register that he intends to introduce a bill in the upcoming legislative session that begins in January.

Sorenson says the discover earlier this week of the bodies of 8-year-old Elizabeth Collins and her cousin, 10-year-old Lyric Cook-Morrissey, have raised the issue of the death penalty to the forefront.

But the chairman of the Iowa Senate's Judiciary Committee, Sen. Gene Fraise, D-Fort Madison, says there is not enough support in the Iowa Legislature to support resurrection of the death penalty.


Just like the Iowa GOP to politicize this...

2. Overruled.

 

No death penalty in Iowa.

It'll be permanently removed from the United States by 2020, and Texas will be last to do so - after commuting the remaining death rowers to LWOP, after more inmates are exonerated by DNA testing thanks to Innocence Project.

3. Gleefully reading the DMR, waiting for such an opportunity?

It's incredible how Repukes can be such ghouls, waiting for the right tragedy to exploit.
