Wash. Bill To Protect Women Inmates, Transgenders ‘Going Nowhere’

  • GOP State Representative Cyndy Jacobsen (R-Puyallup) has co-authored a bill that proposes if someone’s been convicted of certain sex crimes against women, they cannot be housed in the general population of women.
  • “I just fear that we are so worried about being politically correct that we won’t take a hard logical look at things because this is not a politically correct issue to bring up, and I don’t want anybody to be unsafe,” Jacobsen said on The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.
  • “The bill has gone nowhere … because maybe it is a political hot potato,” Jacobsen explained.
