A former high-ranking San Francisco government employee convicted of felony possession of child pornography will continue to receive his government pension because, according to city regulations, evidence of moral turpitude is required to revoke a pension yet viewing violent kiddie porn does not qualify as moral turpitude.
As reported here in the Tatler, Larry Brinkin, a prominent San Francisco Human Rights Commissioner and nationally known gay rights advocate, was arrested in 2012 for possessing and possibly distributing videos and images of babies being raped by adult men. Because of Brinkins iconic stature in the community as the person who pioneered domestic partnership laws nationwide, supporters at the time accused the police of framing him with false charges. But the evidence was so overwhelming that, after 18 months of legal wrangling, on Tuesday, January 21, Brinkin pled guilty to felony possession of child pornography, with various other more serious charges dropped as part of the plea bargain.

What % do you think?
I’ve read as high as 33-37%. Terrible.

He had a pair of overalls and on the back was: HIT AND MISS ENGINEERING.
He made me laugh a lot.
He's what we used to call a sh** disturber.
Being a rabble-rouser he DOES fit on this site. Wouldn't you agree?
Of who do you speak???
And the liberal radio hosts were defending him on the local radio boards.
“moral terpitude”? How about “death penalty offense”
Making kiddie porn equal to murder isn't appropriate.
The death penalty should be for murder, since there IS no recovery from death.
Maybe this guy should have moved there!
Is this for real?
I will have to start pinging the lists again.
If something does not happen soon to stop this incredible descent into hell on earth....
Yeah it is.
The current law is “moral turpitude” means financial crimes only, porn depicting the rape of INFANTS is not as bad as stealing office supplies according to the good people of San Fran. An absolute outrage.
The current law dates to 2008 it says, clearly the queers wanted it changed for reasons such as this. What a disgusting bizzaro world the bay area is. Pervocracy.
