House Bill 28, the Adulterers' Rights Act of 2009, suffered a setback today when State Rep. Tom Riner asked a key question in the House Judiciary Committee meeting in which the bill is being considered: if biology rules in cases of paternity, then shouldn't a rapist be able to assert paternity?
Blank stares. Shuffling of paper. Mumbled comments that basically amounted to "We don't know."
In short, back to the drawing board. The bill will now need to be reworked to eliminate only one of the many objectionable features of this bill.
