Todd Akin: Voted Against Sex Offender Registry

The extremism keeps on coming. From The Hill:

Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) voted against the creation of a national sex offender registry and against reauthorizing a program that assists runaway and homeless children.

Both bills passed by wide margins with strong bipartisan support in the Republican-controlled House.

Akin was one of 52 congressmen to vote in 2005 against the creation of a national sex offender registry database that required those convicted of a sex crime to register before completing a prison term and increased mandatory sentences for those convicted of molesting children.

In 2003, he was one of 14 to vote against the Runaway and Homeless Youth Program and the Missing Children's Assistance Act, which provided $105 million in 2004 for housing, outreach and other programs aimed at assisting runaway and homeless children and also authorized $20 million annually through 2008 for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
