A recent report card gave Maryland's Democratic General Assembly an F for its "effort" on reducing domestic violence. Not only are Maryland's current laws woefully weak and insufficient, but Democrats in Annapolis forcefully struck down the few new laws that were proposed.
What laws did those powerful Democrats oppose?
Democrats siding with greedy trial lawyers (some are trial lawyers themselves) stopped a law that would have denied parental rights to rapists. It's outrageous. That is a page right out of the Brian Frosh playbook. That's the Senator Brian Frosh who opposes mandatory sentences for predators, remember?
These same Democrats also opposed lowering the unusually high bar Maryland requires victims of domestic violence to hurdle in order to receive a protective order.
After many years of talking about domestic violence, Democrats have failed again to protect the citizens of Maryland. Don't forget, the Democrats' pro-crime agenda in Rockville and Annapolis has led to Maryland becoming the most violent state in America. And now, they've brought Maryland to a new low yet again, with a rare, failing grade on domestic violence issues.
