In case you’re late to the party, Isadore Hall was handpicked AHF/Michael Weinstein to be the guy who introduced AB 640,AB332 and AB1576, all condom bills.. Turns out while Hall is holding press conferences & talking negatively about the sexual habits of pornstars, he conveniently forgets his brother is a child rapist and registered sex offender.
Even better, this isn’t even the first time AHF has teamed up with someone who has child rapists in the family, while AHF was parading around Desi Foxx trying to destroy AIM her husband was off offering lolly pops to schoolkids. I find it sort of ironic that AHF uses the “kids may be tempted to have condomless sex” argument while trying to put a condom on Xander Corvus all the while teaming up with people connected to child rapists..
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A state employee has been put on leave Thursday night after a CBS2 investigation uncovered that he’s a registered sex offender who works near children.
Errick Lee manages a state building in downtown Los Angeles, which has a child-care center.
“Mr. Lee, are you a registered sex offender?” asked Investigative Reporter David Goldstein through the door.
He didn’t answer.
Goldstein continued: “You are registered with Long Beach. Do you think it’s wise to be managing a building with a child-care center in it, sir?”
“It raises a concern for me,” said Valerie Valdez, who drops off her 3-year-old son at the child-care center every day. “The fact that he is in the building and may have access to the daycare is a concern.”
Court records show Lee was convicted in 2004 of a felony sex crime with a minor.
According to a Los Angeles Times article at the time, the then 37-year-old Lee was the director of the Lynwood Chamber of Commerce when he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old boy he picked up after class at Lynwood High.
Lee was sentenced to two years in jail and ordered to register as a sex offender for life.
But two years later in 2006, Lee was hired by the state Department of General Services, where he still works, earning just over $77,000 a year.
He now manages the Caltrans building in downtown Los Angeles.
It houses an early education center called Tiny Dots, where moms and dads who work in the downtown area can leave their kids for the day.
Their website shows a school-like setting for nearly 70 infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
It’s unclear if the state knew Lee was a sex offender when it hired him. His name isn’t listed on the Megan’s Law website because his sex offense is exempted.
When CBS2 asked the Department of General Services, a spokesman responded by saying they “do not comment on personnel issues.”
Regina Ramirez is the former director of Tiny Dots and said she never knew Lee was a sex offender.
“This is the first that I’m hearing of that, so I had no idea,” said Ramirez, who questions why Lee was placed so close to kids.
“I don’t think that it’s a good idea,” said Ramirez.
Lee isn’t breaking any laws by being in the building. Since he has already served his time and is off probation, he can work wherever he wants, even around children.
“Of course, I see a danger of putting him in this position,” said Marc Klaas, whose daughter Polly was murdered by a sex offender. He runs the Klaas Kids Foundation aimed at stopping crimes against children.
By satellite from San Francisco, he questions why the state put Lee near the child-care center.
“This is a guy that trolled schools for kids, and here’s a school and here’s kids. Put two and two together,” Klaas said.
But Lee also had problems in the workplace.
In 2014, Lee was also slapped with a sexual-harassment lawsuit.
A male janitor testified he felt “somebody’s hands grabbing my butt. I turn around and it was Eric Lee. And I looked at him, he said, ‘Doesn’t this feel good?’ ”
The case was settled for an undisclosed sum of taxpayer money.
But just months after it was filed, Lee received a Certificate of Recognition from the state Assembly for outstanding dedication and exemplary service.
It was signed by Assemblyman Isadore Hall, who is Lee’s brother.
