Lawmaker fighting for sex offender records

Is this Lawmaker for real? Someone get him a dictionary so he can lookup "Group Home" and "Developmental Disability." How do these people get elected?

UPDATE 10-17: Kearns gets some documents related to sex offender queries "More than 300 pages of documents have been emailed to a state assemblyman fighting for information about why convicted sex offenders are being housed in a West Seneca neighborhood. ..."
10-15-2014 New York:

Assemblyman Micheal Kearns will be in state Supreme Court on Wednesday trying to uncover why sex offenders live in two state group homes in West Seneca.

Last month, he filed an article 78 proceeding in state court against the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.

Kearns wants records regarding how seven sex offenders were placed in the homes.

Many neighbors have been angry about this. Frustration has boiled over a couple of times when the sex offenders left the grounds without proper supervision.

“They put these seven sex offenders into a neighborhood adjacent to a park, without any notification to elected officials, local or state, and all we want are answers to our questions” said Assemblyman Michael Kearns D-Buffalo.

Michele Gray, a mother that lives in West Seneca, said “(It’s) frustrating to me as a homeowner and a mom that I can’t even leave my windows open on a summer night”.

The hearing is set for 10 a.m. on Wednesday in state Supreme Court. ..Source.. by Brittni Smallwood
