Voters turned thumbs-down on Saunders (Nebraska) County Attorney Scott Tinglehoff, an enthusiastic supporter of Nebraska’s 2009 legislation that adds punishments for former sex offenders who have completed their sentences.
The chief architects of the law, LB 285 of 2009, also were losers at the polls. By placing the vast majority of former sex offenders who are at little to no risk to reoffend on the state’s shaming website, the law puts the public in danger.
Political novice Steven Twohig, a Fremont attorney, handily defeated Tinglehoff in the May 13 primary election. Twohig garnered two-thirds of the Republican votes. Nebraskans Unafraid thanks those in Saunders County who heeded our call to vote. More here.
