Pat Nolan has co-authored an op-ed with Connie Rice (cousin of Condoleezza Rice) about prison rape. The article appeared in Monday morning's Los Angeles Times.
The piece highlights a strong left-right consensus that rape must be eliminated from our jails and prisons. The Prison Rape Elimination Commission standards have been bogged down in the bureaucracy of the DOJ, but we’ve been working hard to persuade Attorney General Eric Holder to adopt them swiftly. This op-ed sends a powerful, clear message that people from all ideological backgrounds are united against the atrocity of prison rape.
